2.84/5  rDev -32.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

This brew pours a copper color with a thin head which dissipates quickly and little lacing. Low carbonation.

The smell is has some pumpkin and spices in it; possibly cardamom and allspice. Caramel malts and brown sugar.

The taste is light on both the pumpkin and the spices. Not much pumpkin taste at all.

The mouthfeel is thin and watery

Overall I think this is a complete miss as a pumpkin ale. In don't understand the high ratings for this brew. Little pumpkin smell or taste. Little pumpkin spice smell or taste; this brew is even light on the caramel malts. There are much better pumpkin ales out there.

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!
