2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
22 ounce bottle
I wanted to give this a shot after some positive experiences at the brewpub but it is just too weak and bland even despite the very low price point. Little Mountain is a fine place to in but for better beer head up the road to Willoughby instead, or pick up some local bombers of Brew Kettle or Buckeye.
Aroma / Appearance - The bronze carbonated body has a fizzy lingering head. Spiced pumpkin pie, cinnamon, and cloves are present but watered down as if the initial batch was too strong. The result is something that feels more like a soft drink than a seasonal ale.
Flavor / Palate - Watery and too fluid, the mouthfeel sloshes around like drinking a special flavor of Gatorade. Melted pumpkin pie flavored blizzard washes across the tongue with little to no texture. The tart finish makes me think it was a slightly bad bottle as well. Overall I’m not willing to write off Little Mountain but this is not the best start for a BYO trying to put itself on the map in a competitive location like northeastern Ohio.
