Draft at Iron Hill pumpkin tapping. Poured a very muddy but good looking deep dark orange/brown with a smaller foamy light beige head. Aroma is odd, fruity pumpkin notes along with some berry, yeast, bubble gum and a touch of menthol. Medium bodied with with softer carbonation and an average duration on the aftertaste. Flavor of spices, toast, pupkin towards the end and some roasted gourds. Pretty good with a slightly different twist.
