2.93/5 rDev -16%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
A: Pours a deep, cherry, amber in color with some golden hues near the edges of the glass when held up to the light. A good amount of foamy head sits atop, but dissipates quickly to almost nothing and doesn't leave much lacing around, either. Carbonation looks good.
S: Earthy, manure and sweet, candy-like pumpkin aroma with a malty backbone and some spice. Not very appealing to me, and has an air of "fakeness" to it.
T: Very sweet up front with caramel and molasses malts followed by a lot of pumpkin and spice, bittering on the backend with a slight hop presence. The spice doesn't sit well with me, though I imagine pumpkin fans would appreciate this.
M: Medium bodied with light and active carbonation. A bit thin on the tongue, could use a little more chewiness. It would be quite drinkable for those who can palate the flavor.
O: I was disappointed with this one, but perhaps it's just me. I guess I just don't really care much for pumpkin and spice in beer, or, at the least, I'm just not in the mood for it. I found it quite hard to drink and I think I'll pass on this one in the future. That said, I gave the remaining brews to my buddy who promptly drank them down and said he quite liked them, so don't let my review deter you. A solid offering from the Boston Brewing Company, just not for me!
