3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a gold to amber colour with a white head. Decent aroma of cinnamon and nutmeg spices and pumpkin. This brew offers a nice balance of spice and pumpkin flavores, but is not very potent as the root ale is easily detectable with some bitterness. A good take on the style.

better than other pumpkin ales i’ve tried, but that’s because the others suck. this is one of DFH’s weaker offerings. still pretty good. there’s a bitter brown ale behind the pumpkin, but if you really like pumpkin, this one’s not enough for you. a tiny bit underwhelming, but worth trying. 9/09- after having on tap and cask conditioned (4+), both of which really bring out the pumpkin, I’m no longer underwhelmed. On cask it’s fantastic. Either way (even in the bottle) a very good seasonal brew, but the pumpkin really comes out more on tap."

Spicy flavors dominate with clove and nutmeg. Clearish orange with no head - sherry like. Taste is spice dominated, like all of these types. Moderate bitterness with some spritzy carbonation aspects on the end.

I love the balance of spice with the subtle pumpkin flavor. The body is light enough that you can enjoy several without feeling too full. This is a very well balanced beer.
