3.9/5 rDev -6.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Poured from 22oz bomber into a pint glass.
Appearance: medium orange hue with a moderate haze, a moderate effervescence and quite a few floaties. Head is a thick finger of frothy ivory foam which leave a nice lace as it dissipates. Attractive.
Smell: sweet malt, pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon and ... do I detect cardamom? It's a good mélange of beer, gourd and spice. Classic.
Taste: sweet malt with a big pumpkin flavor and a good dose of the spices from the aroma. It's a bit massive in flavor and a bit overwhelming, but a good example of the style.
Mouthfeel: medium body with a good level of carbonation and a nice, rich, smooth creaminess. I like it.
Overall: this is a good beer, but as I said it's a little bit overwhelming for me. I like my pumpkin beers a little bit more on the subtle side. Decent, but hardly a session drink.
Serving type: bottle
