A: Dirty pumpkin pour appears burgundy in the chalice with a light rise of effervesce. Clarity is good, with a pie crust colored head that was small and whispy atop. Lacing is speckled with vast open windows of space.
S: Aroma of cinnamon, toasted pumpkin, light ginger spicing. The spicing is well balanced and lets the natural pumpkin addition scent have an equal and imporant voice.
T: The flavor was toasted pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg spicing with just a hint of ginger. Again the natural pumpkin flavor gets a bit more say then most other pie style examples. Sweet toastdeness, munich and a rasiniy caramel sweetness.
M: creamy, pumpkin puree with some toasted edginess feel and a soft carbonation touch.
O: Overall i like how they opted to go the more natural route, where the natural pumpkin and toasted quality gets a better representation then most examples which tries to come off like a richly spiced bomb pumpkin pie. Decent, with a better then average rate of drinkability per style.
