The 2007 version, poured into a snifter.
A: This is a pretty beer, amber with a tinge or orange. The almost-fluffy white head dissipates quickly, leaving a nice lace behind.
S: You get a sense of the spice involved, but not enough to really suggest what's coming next.
T: This is my favorite pumpkin beer for a reason. This is exceptionally balanced, the actual pumpkin flavor meshing nicely with the spices. I don't even like pumpkin pie that much, in part because I wish it tasted more like this. Can we make a pumpkin ale pie instead?
M: Actually wish this was just a touch thicker.
D: Yummy, but. It's rich, and alcohol is a little heavy at 7 percent (not that you'd notice from a taste); a couple in one sitting is plenty for me. Still, as far as I'm concerned, this is the gold standard for pumpkin beer.
