3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at Kurtkeller 017: Pumpkin-tastic 02 on 10/13/2014. Hazy pale amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily to an outer ring. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malt, nutmeg and slight fruit. Light-bodied with flavors of sweet spices, earthy sweet potatoes and a touch of tangy fruit. The finish is sweet with a cinnamon and malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

Nitro at Vault. Some interesting things going on with this one. Very creamy, due to nitro pour, some caramel yeast, sugar and sweet potato flavors. Body was a tad thin, but overall it was a good experience.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nitro. Hazy light amber body, large creamy white head, soapy lacing. Nose shows bready sweetness, caramel, and a bit of earthy sweet potato. Flavor is similar with a general muddled bread/potato sweetness dominating. Medium bodied, creamy carbonation, moderately lingering finish. Its tough to make a potato beer drinkable beyond the first few sips. This one is decent, but it still isn’t something I’d want again.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured into a tulip pint. Nitro-tap.
Hazy amber with 1 finger of creamy head. Low carbonation.
Caramel, bread, brown sugar, nutmeg and cinnamon.
Bread, caramel and brown sugar. The sweet potatoes take on a flavor similar to pumpkin but is, obviously, sweeter. Light spices of cinnamon and nutmeg round out the finish.
Light-medium bodied, uber-creamy and incredibly smooth. The
nitro pour does this justice.
Whatever category you want to throw this in, it’s a damn good Autumn beer (Or anytime for that matter). Incredibly balanced, easy drinking and delicious! I will be back for more, Vault.
