12 oz. bottle poured into a DFH IPA glass.
A- Clear body, with an orange-amber hue. Head is a strong and well retained one finger, just off white in color. Carbonation dances up the glass. Beautiful.
S- I pick up the pumpkin and allspice, and a little of the nutmeg on the nose. It isn't over the top, which is, sometimes, where pumpkin beers go wrong.
T- A great and mellow mix of the characteristics I detected in the smell. Again, not over the top. This taste would compliment a slice of pumpkin pie well, instead of trying to replace the pie.
M- Pretty smooth, a little creamy. A bit of a bitter finish, but I think the spice in the finish cuts the bitterness a bit.
O- This is a fantastic pumpkin beer. Like I mentioned before, I think a lot of beers try to replace the taste and aroma of pumpkin pie, whereas DFH seemed to compliment the treat. This is one example of a milder flavored beer being better than others with more pronounced attributes. Delicious.
