3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
At ABQ beer fest. Deep orange. Aroma is basic canned pumpkin and nutmeg. Also some caramelized sugars. Slight booziness here is nice, and the palate is light. Balance is better in the flavors. Toasty malts are never overpowered by the pie spices and sweet caramelized pumpkin meat.
