COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Why is there only one time of year – as goblins, ghouls, and ghosts frolic on front lawns – when we embrace THE FEAR? At all other times, THE FEAR dominates us, controls us, and prevents us from greatness. What is there to THE FEAR? Disagreement? Criticism? Humiliation? Whatever THE FEAR is that consumes you, embrace it, along with this Imperial Pumpkin Ale. Only then will the true artist in you rise up.

Amsterdam. Bottle in my hotel room. Clear deep amber - red beer. Good pale cream coloured head. Light palate, a little soft. Mild minerally carbonation. Thin creamy malt. Good pumpkin, fruity and not too much added spice. Light dry finish. Mild bitter linger. Not bad but I am sure I have had better Imperial Pumpkins.
