A- had on tap at capital ale house in Richmond VA. Very clear amber beer with a foam head made of micro bubbles. So clear I could read through it.
S- lots of pumpkin spice notes. Blends with a caramel sugar aroma. Very strong. Also getting hints of clove and nutmeg in the back half.
T- a brief flash of the pumpkin gives way to the spices and the clove. The finish ends with a bitterness that seems to be a cross between faint hops and the cloves.
M- smooth feel to it. Easy to drink. Low carbonation.
O- I love how this smells and it really shows a lot of promise when I hold it to my nose. But it disappoints from there. The clove bitterness is a turnoff. The taste just doesn't live up to the aroma. If you are looking for a pumpkin ale that drinks like a regular pale ale then this is for u. But if u prefer bigger pumpkin flavor I would try something else.
Serving type: on-tap
