Presentation: Standard 12oz bottle. Bottled on 8/16/2007. Other than that not much else. Standard DFH labeling format.
Appearance: Light amber color with a light hint of orange. Almost nonexistent head, even with a vigorous pour and served at cellar temperature.
Smell: The smell is quite well balanced. None of the spices are overpowering in the aroma. Nutmeg, caramel, brown sugar, and a light touch of allspice.
Taste: Not much spice flavor in this beer. Just a standard malt body, slight hint of cinnamon and nutmeg, moderate hop bitterness, with pumpkin and alcohol in the finish.
Mouthfeel: The body is on the thin side with thin mouthfeel.
Notes: Not too bad of a pumpkin beer. I'm glad they didn't go overboard with the spices like a lot of other breweries do. The base of the beer is nice. Would be easier to drink if the alcohol wasn't so high.
Serving type: bottle
