Pours a hazy dark pumpkin flesh color with a large, bumpy off-white head. White pepper spice and pumpkin bouquet. Very soft, smooth, flat, and enveloping mouthfeel. A bit of gourd-vegetable flavor, but earthy as hell.

Not my favorite Pumpkin ale, but has a good, spicy aftertaste, and it’s kind of cool that they used pumpkins that they actually grew themselves.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: Cinnamon and warm pumpkin in the background. Appearance: Medium copper. Great white head; steady flowing carb bubbles. Taste: Soft pumpkin and spice give way, almost too easily and too soon, to the sourdough/bready pacman yeast. The yeast cleans up nice on the Palate, though, leaving little aftertaste after a thin bodied and slightly fizzy mouth feel.
The pumpkin is there, but it’s not the star of the show. Damn you, Pacman yeast!
