KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - NOV 12, 2011
Bottle. The pour was a clear medium golden amber with a large (2-3 finger) rocky white head that was mostly diminishing and had good lacing. The aroma was moderately heavy with toasted biscuit malt and a sweet doughy yeast with strong notes of nutmeg, brown sugar, cinnamon and pumpkin. The taste was sweet and quite malty with notes of brown sugar and cinnamon in the beginning then progressed to become slightly bitter yet still extremely malty with notes of nutmeg and pumpkin with a mild alcohol finish. The flavor had really good longevity after the swallow allowing full enjoyment and a nice alcohol warming sensation. Mouthfeel was medium to full in body and semi-dry in texture with a nice lively carbonation. Overall and outstanding Pumpkin Ale that was perfectly balanced and very flavorful.

Bottle thanks to cgarvieuk dregs run. Appearance - bright amber with a decent head. Nose - sweet pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg. Taste - more of the same. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly good finish. Overall - I’m not as averse to this style as most raters. I also like this.

Aroma has some bread and pumpkin notes, pours a golden amber hue with a minimal head. Taste is warm and malty with a hint of pumpkin and allspice. Not too sweet, and the pumpkin is a nice addition, not overpowering. It has a light body that makes it very drinkable.
