3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: Draft at the Brewpub, Princeton, 11/17/13
Aroma: The nose is a touch dull, with pumpkin spices, malts, bread, and some mild fruit
Appearance: It pours a clear darker orange color with a head and some good lacework
Flavor: The spice comes out more in the flavor, but the components are pretty similar to the nose
Palate: The body is medium, it drinks easily, and has a mild dryness to the finish
This is an alright example of a pumpkin spice beer, but it just feels a touch on the dull side, especially in the nose. Overall though, it is very drinkable.
