My Bottom Line:
This quaffable Pumpkin Ale lays out its cereal and fruity sweetness into a lean body where pumpkin does not override every other flavor.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the hazy pale orange.
-Earthiness appears in the back, maybe a result of the supporting hops.
-Carbonation is rather low, making this absurdly drinkable.
-This one didn’t stand out much at Baird’s fruit beer festival, but it stil provided a fine quencher.
On tap at the brewery tap room.

Hazy amber color. Slight hop character in the nose, but undistinguished. Mouth starts a bit hoppy, but then malts play the bigger role with hints of pumpkin and pumpkin seeds, spice, but after drinking a very complex Octoberfest, this is a bit of a let down. This beer was lost on me.
