Had on tap @Lord Hobo

Appearance: one inch head, orange-brown in color, clear, medium carbonation

Smell: cinnamon, clove, and pumpkin spice

Taste: clove, cinnamon, and pumpkin spice with a touch of vailla

Mouthfeel: very sweet , medium-light carbonation, medium bodied

Overall: Was really strangely happy to find a pumpkin beer this late in the season. This is just the type of pumpkin beer I would expect from Shorts. Very pronounced, sweet, and strong on flavor. May be one of the most flavorful low ABV pumpkin beers I have had. Would be a pumpkin beer of choice if I could get it regularly.

Funkin punkin is served up a deep and cloudy amber color. My pour does not have a whole lot of head on it, and lacing is not super either.

The aroma is classic pumpkin beer with a mix of pumpkin pie spices, roasted squash and caramel sweetness.

The flavor is spice filled up front with plenty of allspice, clove, cinnamon and nutmeg. The pumpkin comes through a lot in the middle and has a taste to it that seems fresher than a lot of other pumpkin beers I have had.

The mouthfeel is medium with a fairly fizzy amount of carbonation and pretty dry finish that leaves plenty of spice on my tongue.

Overall I found this to be a very tasty pumpkin ale. It does not stand out for any reason, but is very drinkable and well put together.

Had on tap at HopCat poured into a pint glass:

A: Poured an orange copper color with 1/2" of head, no lacing at all.

S: Spicy, cinnamon, clove, all spice, peppery, and a cidery aroma

T: over powerful cinnamon, no pumpkin or hops flavor detected

M: Very thin and watery, very light carbonation

D: I made it through the whole pint, otherwise I will try it again next fall to see if next years batch is better. But, I've had my fill for '08.
