Unlike some reviews, I liked this beer.
Poured it into a pint glass and had to poor slowly as it developed a 2 to 3 finger head that was off white to slightly tan in color. Thick head with a slight rocky top appearance. The lacing was still visible on the upper part of the glass when I was half through with the beer. The head lasted for 3 to 5 minutes before dissipating.
I could definitely detect the pumpkin in the smell until my nose became desensitized to the smell.
The pumpkin came out more in the finish than in the liquid on the tounge. I could detect some citrus flavors as well. All in all, a very smooth and drinkable beer.
The beer had nice body and a medium mouthfeel.
Overall I liked this beer and would not hesitate to order it again.
After trying this beer in a restaurant I bought a 6 pack. It must have been from an entirely different batch. This time the pumpkin and spice aroma was very strong, and the flavor was extremely sweet and syrupy. Carbonation was almost non existent and it poured up with no head at all. Maybe this was just a bad bottle. Not sure, but now I am hesitant to even open the remainder, however I will in order to give this beer a third chance.
