12oz into a DFH signature glass.
A: Translucent pumpkin orange. Fitting. Small head vanishes quickly.
S: Cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar, pumpkin, all as one would expect here.
T: Straight after the nose up front with cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice. Not overbearing tho as the pumpkin comes in and plays an even role. All this lands on a light caramel malt backbone. Surprisingly balanced.
M: A lighter body than the typical Pumpkin ale, not very carbonated. Drinks smooth.
D: I can see why this gets alot of attention: Unlike some other pumpkin ales, it's very easy to drink more than one of. Isn't burdensome in spice or sweetness. A well done pumpkin ale, if only a little pricey at $8.99 a four pack.
Serving type: bottle
