3.7/5  rDev +5.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

12oz Bottle from CJ's Potsdam NY for 2$

Appearance - Clear brownish red colour with an average size fizzy/frothy beige coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation and there is some decent lacing. The head lasted for around 4 minutes.

Smell - Malts, pumpkin, all spice

Taste & Mouth - There is an above average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, caramel, and pumpkins. There is also a bit of a cola flavour and some all spice. It ends with a slightly spicy aftertaste.

Overall - It doesn't taste as good as it smells, but it also remains fairly drinkable by not being too in your face. I could actually drink a few of these back to back.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured from the bomber into a Sam Adams laser-etched glass.
Review from notes: January 18th, 2014.

A: Copper with thin white head. Good retention, some bubbles.

S: Pumpkin. Nutmeg and clove.

T: Sweet pumpkin, minimal spices. Very drinkable.

M: Nice carbonation, thin mouthfeel.

O: Good. I wasn't excited about this beer (it was in a fall sampler), but it wound up being a nice surprise. The best description for this beer is its name, "pumpkin ale". It tastes like an ale injected with pumpkin juice.
