on tap at one of the college bars in Geneva, ny. frustrating they would pour such a nice ale into a plastic cup, still charge me five bucks, and disrespect both of us that way, but what did I expect at this Hobart hotspot? dark copper in color with over an inch of fizzy off white head that lasts quite awhile. curious aromatics. pumpkin pie spice, but there is something else different, maybe ginger, crystalized ginger, sweet and earthy with a pungent spice to it. that's what I would guess anyway, but its hard to know for sure. something peps this right up, gives it a little sweetness along with the malt, and makes it stand out from the crowd. there could also be a little rye in the malt mix, which could account for some of that, but the other tell tale signs of rye are absent. its a sweeter and fuller bodied base, still quite drinkable if you don't mind all the spice. the pumpkin itself isn't apparent to me, but it doesn't hurt this one like it does others. good beer overall, an enjoyable different take on our fall classic.
