Enjoyed on draft out of a standard glass pint. The Great Pumpkin pours a hazy orange and gold color. Serious pumpkin pie smell - like you're just finished Thanksgiving dinner and you're diving into a fresh slice of homemade pie. Taste is similar - like mom's pumpkin pie with plenty of whipped cream. A smooth and delicious brew that drinks like dessert despite the high alcohol content. Mouthfeel is sleek with a bit of liquor on the finish if you swish it, smoother with a quick swig. One of the best pumpkin beers I've ever sampled and one I could go back to.
Serving type: on-tap

T: pumpkin pie spices, sweet breads, squashy pumpkin pie, vanilla, a slightly boozy finish.
