Original Review: 09-21-2006

Notes:

Appearance: Light orange. Creamy head that turns into thick lacing.

The tasting profile included Pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and brown sugar. All this was accompanied with a slight hop bitterness and a gentle smokiness after It warmed up a bit.

The ale itself was creamy and full-bodied. The complex aroma includes brown sugar, malts, squash, caramel and a slight butter/biscuit note.

Let it sit out for about 15 minutes after pulling it out of the fridge.

Big thanks to blastbeats for this one!

Creamy honey gold body topped with a modest paper white head, laces moderately.

Pumpkin pie. Nutty, spicy and earthy, smells like Minnesota mud in mid October... cinnamon, gourd puree, everything autumnal.

Fresh squash, nutmeg, dry baking spices, pie crust, faint caramel and vanilla... nothing overpowering about this... smooth, well executed.

Nice.
