Bottle poured into my Dogfish Off-Centered-Ales 12-ounce glass.
A: Pours an opaque Amber, with a tint of Orange to it, with a moderate off-white head on top that stuck around nicely.
S: Pumpkin definitely discernible, as is a hint of spice, perhaps nutmeg? Not sure.
T: Taste follows the nose. A great amber beer, with a pleasant addition of pumpkin and cinnamon. What I love about this beer is that it doesn't overdo the "pumpking + spice" aspect of the beer. Maybe just a hint of dry-hopped pine on the back end as well.
M: Hefty and thick, with a nice amount of carbonation underneath. A sweet and cinnamin-spiced finish rounds out the experience.
D/O: "Pumpkin beer" is not my favorite style. Let's be real: it's novelty beer. But, tis the season, and this is probably my favorite example of the style. Dogfish hasn't lost sight of the fact that they're still making a *BEER* here. The pumpkin/spice addition is pleasant, but not overwhelming. And it has great body, where other pumpkin beers tend to run a little thin. Enjoyable and repeatable every year, but not in huge quantities.
