12 oz brown bottle poured into a DFH pint glass.
Appearance: Pours a bright copper with a one finger beige head. Above average retention and some nice sudsy lacing throughout.
Aroma: Roasted cooked pumpkin. Cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and brown sugar.
Taste: This is where this one shines. In a land of mostly average pumpkin beers this one hits the mark. It doesn't try to be too much, doesn't try to do the pumpkin pie thing. Nice actual pumpkin flavor. and a nice balance of the spices. Nothing over the top. Cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, brown sugar all show up. Very good indeed.
Mouthfeel: Medium mouthfeel. Another strong point of this beer, is it's drinkability. Some pumkin beers are just too much or just aren't that good. this is one you can keep coming back to. Carbonation is average, and finishes off with a nice subtle sweetness from the spices. A remarkable beer. And yearly one of my favorite pumpkin beers.
