A Sim rate (tap at Heartland, Union Square): Spicy aroma. Pumpkin, of course, but also nutmeg and cinnamon. Flavour is very similar. I’ve bumped up the flavour score because of how much I love that pumpkin pie flavour it’s got. Very sweet and spicy finish. Enjoyed it very much.

Growler. Pours copper with a thin off white head. Smells of pumpkin spices, some honey, hints of pumpkin mash. Tastes watery and more or less devoid of anything pumpkin. Not worth it.

Sure there is fruitiness, but they have also used the whole spice rack, which is too much for me. I will never be a strong pumpkin ale fan!
