I drink way, way too much of this delicious pumpkin beer this time of year so when the opportunity came for a draft I had three. Enjoyed at the 2012 ABR, from notes.
Pour was orange, clear with a finger of white foam, some lacing. Looks exactly like a pumpkin beer should look.
Smell was biscuits and caramel, subtle pumpkin pie spices..nutmeg cinnamon allspice.
Taste was all about a lightly sweet pumpkin pie..mashed pumpkin, soft flaky, buttery crust, lightly applied spices..nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, ginger. Pumpkin-bready malt. Lightly warming alcohol works well here. Big flavors, lightly sweet, but not at all sugary. It's hard to characterize the effect precisely, though it's fantastic. My favorite pumpkin and fall ale, hands down.
Serving type: on-tap
