4.65/5 rDev +17.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: coppery orange/brown with some cloudiness and thin off white head
Aroma: pumpkin heartiness but also a very beer like aroma. Slight nutmeg and cinnamon hints but this beer smells impressively beer like but with pumpkin notes.
Taste: bear perfect blend of pumpkin, spice, and real malt taste. Pumpkin flavor complements bready malt taste rather than overpowers and the nutmeg, cinnamon, and brown sugar additions give the beer a pumpkin pie like flavor. The finish is drying and pleasant.
Mouthfeel: full bodied but drinkable for a pumpkin ale. Medium carbonation
Overall: one of my favorite fall pumpkin ales because it balanced pumpkin and spice flavors with real beer and malt flavors. Sometimes pumpkin ales are overdone and overwhelming to the palate with sweetness and dessert like flavors. I like this one because it is one you can definitely drink a full six pack of and not completely fatigue your palate.
Serving type: bottle
