Bottle Pour from Harvest sample pack, 2010
Poured into Sam Adams perfect pint glass
(A) Pours a clear reddish amber with a thick foaming antique-white head of about two-fingers worth. Retention was high, and a slight ribbon remained through completion.
(S) Very Curious. Malt on nose is mild and bready, no hop aroma. Suggestion of various harvest/autumn scents all blend together into an arom cornucopia. The pumpkin has a roasted smell to it, not raw. It's present, but peppered with other various nose-tinglers that create something unique. It can best be described as a Pumpkin-Banana Muffin fresh from the bakery
(T) Everything is well-balanced without any one flavor overwhelming another. Think of a top-fermented Marzen that came from an artisan bakery. No hop flavor is present, but there is mild bittering which prevents this beer from being sweet.
(M) Good carbonation, medium to medium-heavy body, somewhat chewy like a loaf of pumpkin bread, but not heavy.
(D) Here's where this beer does well. Most pumpkin beers are interesting and you never want a 2nd. This one does not fall under this norm. A second bottle would be more than welcomed.
