Poured into a goblet
A- pours a bright golden color with some orange hue a a decent size foamy white head that quickly reduces leaving short lasting lace.
S- I had heard that this one smells like a real pumpkin pie, and I agree! The malt smells so identical to a graham cracker crust it is rediculous. The cinnamon and nutmeg are there, but the maltiness takes center stage on the aroma. Of the dozens of pumpkin beers I've had, none come this closes to smelling like pumpkin pie.
T- that graham cracker aroma follows into an identical taste. The malts provide a crisp wheaty, crackery backbone. This transitions into the pumpkin flavors. Notes ofnutmeg, clove, and cinnamon. The pumpkin is there and has more of a creamy pumpkin taste too it, which provides the 'pie' taste. The finish is slightly sweet-yet-dry with a malty linger on the palate.
M- medium body, low carbonation, slightly creamy mouthfeel with with a smooth finish.
O- I've tried a lot of pumpkin beers and this one differentiates itself from all others. It has a unique taste and is an awesome holiday beer. This one is very easy to drink, but to be enjoyed slowly.
