Date: 9/15/14
Location: DeCicco's Pelham
Draught/Bottle: Bottle
Glassware: Snifter

Appearance: Very light orange in color, clear and easy to see through. The beer lets in lots of light. Very strong carbonation. Big frothy white head with decent retention. Little to no cling in the glass while the drink is being imbibed.
Aroma: The aromas are mild in comparison to the other pumpkin beers I've tried this summer and fall. I get nice aromas of allspice, clove, nutmeg. The pumpkin seems to come out very nicely as well. Brown sugar also plays a nice role.
Taste: A very mellow blend of the spices and pumpkin comes together. Something is hitting me close to vanilla but in reality it is probably sugars (brown). The malts play a simple role as well.
Mouthfeel: Light Medium to medium in body with Medium to medium high carbonation. This is a perfect example of a refreshing fruit beer. The carbonation is a bit on the high side but still very nice.
