Tastes better than many pumkin ales. As with most varieties there isn’t much actual pumpkin flavor, but a nice pinch of fall/winter spices, allspice, nutmeg, and the like. Not overpowering, well balanced flavor added to a nice solid brown ale. Another pleaser from Matt.

Not very heavy. Balanced spices. Good for a pumpkin/harvest. Not a lot of mouth feel and the aroma was a little weak. Bottle.

Bottle @ home. Ambrata, limpida, schiuma beige chiaro, molto fine piuttosto persistente. aroma speziato, cannella e vaniglia, zucca , caramello, malto, amaro Montenegro. Gusto speziato, maltato, cannella e zucca predominanti, ma anche un retrogusto erbaceo. Decisamente carbonata, poco calda, rotonda, nessuna astringenza, un po’ appiccicosa la consistenza. Equilibrata , ma non troppo armonica.

*Old rating. 2010. The beer is spicy, malty-fresh, slightly sweetish and not too pumpkin-like. Interesting, but a bit strange...
