tasted like a pumpkin pie, Nice pumpkin and spice notable only the over all flavor just fell a little short for me.

Tap @ Cardinal. Pours a really nice pale-tan head which leaves beautiful lacing as the beer "disappears". The color is clear deep amber. Aromas of toffee and caramel from the malts, maybe some spices if you put your mind into it. Complex taste that I can’t describe, but it’s not what I expected from a pumpkin ale. But it’s really good and balanced. Too bad it’s so limited as it’s a really good ale from Nøgne Ø.

I enjoy pumpkin ales that let the taste of the pumpkin come to the front without added spices to change the taste. Roasted pumpkin flavor is nice n the beer. I enjoyed this one and am glad I had the opportunity to enjoy it from a fresh tap so far from Norway.
