2.8/5 rDev -28%
look: 2.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2
On tap at 3 rivers 6 pack and eatery.
Apperance: dark plum looking. No head to speak of and this was just tapped.
Smell: this is where this beer really shines in my opinion. Loads of spices that dominate the nose. Cinnamin, Nutmeg, Gloves, Ginger and oddly pepper.
Taste: here is where it fell apart for me. All of the above mentioned spices were all over the place. They just did not mesh very well. Every spice over dominated the other. Swallow was quite harsh to say the least. This is the first time I had this beer so was not sure what to expect. Highly disappointed on this one.
Overall: would not have again.
Serving type: on-tap

There are three types of pumpkin beer: spice heavy, gourd heavy, and balanced.
This is definitely on the spice-heavy end of things.
Cinnamon first, followed by a hint of nutmeg and clove. You do get a hint of squash/gourd at the end.
I tend to to be more "punkin' " centric.
A good pumpkin beer, but still inferior to Southern Tier's sweeter Pumking.
Serving type: bottle
