22 ounce bomber poured into my Schlafly tulip glass.
A - Clear, orange - copper colored, with minimal off-white head and no lacing.
S - The dominant scent for me was the bready / biscuity smell. Very reminiscent of graham crackers. Some of the pumpkin pie spices as well and some malt. No hop aroma whatsoever.
T & M - Not a lot of carbonation. Again, you get a lot of the graham cracker / bready taste up front, followed with a lot of spice. The graham cracker scent and taste is very unique to this pumpkin beer. It is like you are drinking a slice of pumpkin pie. A little creamy feel to it. Alcohol more prevalent as it warms, and it does sneak up on you.
Overall - Probably my 2nd favorite pumpkin beer behind Schlafly (which I was disappointed in this year's effort). Unique in terms of the 'pie crust' character that this one employs. Another great Southern Tier brew.
