A - Pours a bronzy Thanksgiving holiday orange. Thin head that disappears quickly. Looks tasty!

S – Delicious pumpkin pie aroma…Provides the November sweet ‘made from scratch’ pumpkin pie crust and all the filling with pumpkin pie spices exceptionally present. I get the nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger and vanilla. Pure Perfection!!!

T – Malty flavor filled with notes of caramel, nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla. Has the toasted pumpkin complimented by the aroma of nutmeg and cinnamon. A slight bitterness, not nearly as sweet as it smells. Yet, perfectly capturing the sweet taste of pumpkin pie in liquid form loaded with creamy spiciness.

M - Whole Hog Pumpkin Ale definitely has a slight creamy texture-like sweetness, balance with a slight earthy hop bitterness and smooth lingering pumpkin spice flavor.

O - Whole Hog Pumpkin Ale is definitely the equivalent of a piece of pumpkin pie in a glass; Whole Hog got it right from smell, color and texture. A must to have on thanksgiving with friends and family. Very rich in flavor and character with all the classic pumpkin pie qualities. Finally a pumpkin ale that’s not too boozy, but still has a kick. Not water down a faint taste of pumpkin, yet still a full-flavored winter beverage. Probably the best drinkable pumpkin ale I’ve had so far and I love pumpkin ales.

Special thanks to BeerFMAndy for sending me this brew here recently.

Presently #8 in the pumpkin ale category here on BA.

A: Poured a very murky, pumpkin color, with a small, whisky head that still had staying power. RESILIENCE!!

S: My wife got mint on the nose. I got fresh, clean linen with cinnamon and nutmeg. Also, it had sort of a marshmallowy center that broke up what could have been a true spice bomb.

T: This had a really nice brown ale quality about it, yet still it retained its pumpkin ale roots. I'll change my assessment of "marshmallow" to "Mallow Creme."

M: Really nice on the palate: Low carbonation, not overly sweet, and certainly drinkable. A bit of a booze burn, but it was of the candy-coated variety.

O: Thanks for the honor, Andy! Definitely a keeper!
