This was picked up at Brewskies of New Oxford, PA. Around $34.00 per case.
Look: Color was a super clear orange-copper color. Head was a 3-finger pile of beige foam, which quickly reduced down to the classic clump of 'ice-cream' floating around in the middle. An abundance of lacing had already formed. Carbonation bubbles were far and few between.
Smell: Strong candy cinnamon and allspice seemed to dominate the nose. A faint bready yeast note was in the background.
Taste: First off was a very thin pumpkin note followed by an abbreviated spiciness from the nose. The finish was surprisingly watery with residual spice notes hanging around. Probably the most drinkable Pumpkin Ale I've ever had. Not much in the way of biscuit or piecrust.
This was an ok Pumpkin - very sessionable. The beer definitely didn’t appear artificial, but the pumpkin notes that were detected seemed a little light. I would have preferred a bit more pumpkin and some biscuit notes to balance out the more prominent spice notes. If Bud Light were to do a Pumpkin Ale - this would be it.
