As a preface - this growler has already had a rough life, so take this review for what it's worth. I purchased it from the Rehobeth Beach, Del. brewpub two full weeks ago while on business. It then rode around in my bag for the rest of the week, including a flight. It has since been in my fridge, sealed - while it never saw the light of day, it sat at room temperature for nearly a week.
A good pop of carbonation accompanied the twist of the cap, which is a good sign.
Brilliant pale orange, with a hint of head. Looks good for fall.
Spices, pumpkin and some alcohol on the nose.
Spices lead the tongue too, followed by sweet pumpkin, without being syrupy. Mildly toasted - lots of fall packed into this one. Robust maltiness too lends some sweetness as well.
A pretty good example of a well-rounded pumpkin ale - highly drinkable, yet nothing stands out as especially memorable.
Serving type: growler
