L: Bright, hazy orange with an off-white head that dissipates very quickly. Leaves almost no lacing.
A: Rich cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, allspice, and some caramel/bisciut malt. Light on the hops notes and very neutral in terms of yeast character. Smells like pumpkin pie with graham cracker crust.
T/M: Modest bitterness upfront, swells into pumpkin pie, graham cracker and slightly herbal and vegetal notes. Mouthfeel is smooth as silk, with a subtle carbonation bite. Superb balance.
Overall, this is hands down the best non-imperial pumpkin ale I have come across. The balance is just about perfect, exceeds everything I thought possible of the style. I always thought of pumpkin beers as a kind of novelty, but this one goes to prove they can be just as delicious as they are festive.
