3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bomber from Market Liquor in Minot. Appearance: finger of tan head, head does not last, dark copper color, cloudy, little to no lacing. Aroma: pumpkin, cinnamon, cloves, light caramel, slight yeasty bread notes, spicy hoppiness. Palate: medium body, average carbonation, medium-light bitter finish, thin to slightly sticky texture. Taste: sweet caramel and pumpkin, with spicy hops bitterness moving in smoothly to replace it, ending mildly bitter, with notes of spice on finish. Overall, very smooth, love the lightness for a pumpkin beer, good bitter balance for the sweetness.

Tap at 23 Craft Beerz. Light on spicing, but a touch there. Medium bodied. Pumpkin taste of course. Malty, light sweetness, caramel. Quite nice, but I’m still not a pumpkin beer person but can hardly hold that against the beer.
