12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a clear copper, with a couple fingers of foamy and slightly off-white colored head. This maintains a smooth and creamy ½ finger that skims the surface, leaving back a sudsy cascade of lacing which quickly drips down the sides of the glass. The aroma is a nice even blend of pumpkin, light sweetness and festive spices. Those spices kind of hang on the edges of the nose and mingle in with a gentle green floral feel.
The taste is fresh, fleshy pumpkin, a neutral kind of sticky sweetness and just the right amount of pumpkin spices. Hops have a bit of rawness to them that leave this dry and bitter on the finish. The flavors achieve a nice evenness as this warms. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a firm feel down the center of the tongue and then more smooth and creamy on the edges. This has a nice drinkable feel to it.
It’s good to see Long Trail finally putting a Pumpkin Ale out, as it’s a seasonal style that would seem to be right in their wheel house. And this was a nice example of the style too, with an easy feel, balanced flavors and a fresh pumpkin character that carried this well. I’ll definitely be keeping an eye out again for this one.
