4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft and bomber from Craft Ale House. Pours chill hazy orangy brownish with 1-finger off-white head. Nose is an intense medley of pumpkin puree, spice, graham cracker, and nutmeg. Tastes rich, complex, with a semi-sweet pumpkin flavor, cardamom, some graham crackery flavor, and a smooth finish. This is one of the top 3 pumpkin ales I have ever had, and the draft is a tad better by a tenth or two than the bottled version.

Decent pumpkin ale on draft at the Craft Ale House. The beer poured an amber color with a thick tan head. Lots of nice pumpkin flavor in the body, along with some hints of wheat, graham crackers, pie dough, cinnamon and a little nutmeg. The beer was nicely balanced. The pumpkin and malt weren’t overpowering, like I find in a lot of pumpkin-flavors beers this time of year.
