Another surprisingly good pumpkin beer -- Dogfish Head Pumpkin ale being the first good pumpkin beer I've tried in a long line of disappointments.

This actually doesn't taste much like beer. It's a pumpkin soda that cloaks its 7.5% abv completely. It's much sweeter than the Dogfish Head, which isn't a good thing. Wish there were more malt flavor (the "pie crust" flavor found in the Dogfish Head) and bigger body.

But it's definitely better than ten pumpkin beers I've tried in the past month.

Poured this at a perfect temperature with a small fizzy head that promptly disappeared, no lace and a clear brown color. Aroma is spicy pumpkin pie and more bold than the flavor. This is one of the better pumpkin beers where the flavors are not so overpowering. There is some balance; malts can be tasted; still not one of my favorite kinds of beers but this isn't bad. Good body. Decent finish with a very slight hint of alcohol.

On tap at Bluephie's in Madison, Wisconsin. 16oz served in a shaker pint glass 10/14/2014.

A- Clear light brown-amber body, minimal head, not a whole lot of lacing. Pretty generic-looking. [3.25]

S- Pumpkin pie galore. Cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, allspice. Good lord, there is certainly a lot of it. The sweet grainy caramel malt services quite well as a pie crust here. [4.25]

F- Cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, allspice. Even a little bit of whipped cream with the malt sweetness also providing some of that sweet grainy crust. Very intensely spiced up, this is quite close to what actual pumpkin pie tastes like. [4]

M- Thinner bodied, but still packed with flavours. Nicely carbonated, peppy on the palate with a nice spiced up finish. [4]

O- This is the opposite of New Glarus' Pumpkin Pie Lust. This is all spices, all the way. It's very interesting to see how the two contrast. Not sure which one I'm more impressed with, but this is pretty impressively spice-forward. If that's your thing, I certainly recommend this one. [4]

Great desert beer. One of my top 3 pumpkin beers I've had to date. Closest to Pumkin pie that your going to get. Sweet and delicious. Highly recommend.
