Bottle into an ale glass. Pour is a haze amber orange with a fine head. Aroma well its a fresh pumpkin pie with a malt back. Taste is as it smells. Finish is very crisp with a bitter pumpkin that holds on a while. A very good ale.

Weyerbacher’s Imperial Pumpkin Ale. This is a bottle I picked up at Ølbutikken in Copenhagen. 8% this beer is made with spices including cardamom so I curious to see how adding that to the mix will change things. It pours an opaque reddish brown with a very light beige head. A not overly spiced sweet aroma, cloves, cardamom, cinnamon seems balanced. The taste is medium bodied, sweet & fruity with a bunch of spices in the finish. Fairly complex, I think it’s more my style than Southern Tier. More of a general fruitiness than truly pumpkin but less spice forward(at least straight from the fridge) pretty good.

Tap. Snifter. Mahogany with small head and little lacing. Smells of pumpkin spice, especially cinnamon. Taste is heavily cinnamon, with nice mouthfeel. Good stuff.

Bottle @ ZZT 8 shared by Dutchdrebus. Clear amber to reddish color, virtually no head. Aroma has a lot of herbs and spices with a little sweetness. Taste lightly malts, some sweetness, light to moderately herbs or spices, not nearly as much as in the aroma.
