I wanted to give this one another try. After unintentionally skipping over this one during the '09 season, I bought into the hype in '10 and mistakenly purchased 8 of these bombers without having tasted it before. 9 times out of 10 it always seems to be the first name out of a beer lovers mouth when discussing pumpkin beers, so it's got to be good....right?
A - Pours a clear, bright orange. Only a tiny film of white bubbles. Little to no lacing - spotty at best.
S - Smells like a sweet pumpkin candy. Some cinnamon and vanilla come through, but there's an overwhelming butterscotch scent. Just like I remember from my first experience with this one. Not inviting at all.
T - Revolting artificial and candy-like pumpkin and butterscotch. Seriously unpleasant. If I closed my eyes, I'd imagine that I'm drinking a glass of artificial pumpkin flavoring liquid.
M - Very watery. Lacks any "oomph" or body to it. Moderate carbonation.
D - Completely abhorrent.
This one's going down the drain, again. I'm glad other people like this stuff so that I can easily send out the couple remaining bottles as extras.
