Tap at Blind Tiger. It kind of glows. A cheap-tasting beer with pumpkin. Some breadiness. I thought it was quite drinkable, albeit simple and surely no work of art.

Clear and remarkably orange in color (from the yellow 6 coloring I imagine), there’s a lot of sweet malt here as expected.

On tap at Elysian’s Great Pumpkin Fest 2011. Colour... a truly orange colour with no head. Nose... corn sirop, malt sirop and honey. Palate... plenty of corn up front (which is what I’d expect from a malt liquor) then a wave of sweet spice (nutmeg?) and clover honey followed by a grainy finish with hints of pumpkin and notes of ethanol. All in all not a bad ML.

2011 GBPF. Ha! This looks awesome! Food coloring gives it a proper pumpkin-orange color. Probably the most pumpkin looking beer at the festival. Smells and tastes slightly fruity and flat. Interesting. I could probably drink this from a 40.

Tap at Blind Tiger. Rich orange color with a thing white head. Just enough pumpkin with an appropriate amount of sweetness. Light malt and spiced character. Definitely benefits from being consumed cold. This was a pleasant surprise for me, I absolutely expected to not like this one.
