22 oz bomber. I like to take a sniff of the brew after I pop the cap to see what the first aromas to escape the bottle are, and this one surprised me. Creamed corn. Okay, moving on. The brew is a deep copper color with a small head that falls to a light coating over top. Clarity is excellent and there are a few bubbles in the liquid. The aroma is really giving me impressions of corn. Sweet cornbread, creamed corn, maybe some butternut squash with a mild to moderate nutmeg spice. These are all corn aromas I really enjoy, so it is not bad, just not what I am expecting from a pumpkin brew. The flavor brings definite pumpkin flesh flavors, but this one has a lot more sweetness that I can attribute to the pumpkin than others in the ilk. It still just strikes me as cornbread and creamed corn. The spicy nutmeg comes through well into the finish, and there is just a hint of bitterness on the finish which compliments the nutmeg. Mouthfeel is moderate with a solid moderate carbonation of fine bubbles. This is a nice brew. I like the contrast in how the pumpkin is manifested in this one, as a more sweet flavor. I just can't get away from the corn description on this one. A fine brew.
