On tap at the Brewpub. Hazy golden with a white head. Fairly relaxed with grass, some fruit, malt and some caramel. The finish was a bit dry.

after4ever (7714) - Brier, Washington, USA - FEB 8, 2016
Tap at HOTD. Stoked to finally stumble across this one, after years of (admittedly never bothering) not getting over to Higgins to try it. Pours a slightly hazy medium gold with very little head, no lace. Mild sweet cereal and soft gourd on the nose. Creamy medium body with minimal carb. Lightly toasted grain and soft gourd on the mid palate, very coherent and approachable. very light tannin on the finish.

Ferris (13507) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 26, 2016
Draft - Sweet butterscotch, caramel and some earth. Cloudy gold with a decent white head. Sweet, a bit syrupy and a touch of earthy notes. The squash gives a very sweet earthy not that is interesting, but not really tasty.

luttonm (5256) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 6, 2015
Draft at HotD. Bright golden brown. Thin creamy foam. Creamy beer, mild earthiness, balanced sweet active body, great carbonation. Sweet finish. Lovely, but hard to describe.

[2/24/15] Draught at Hair of the Dog in Portland. Hazy golden. Aroma of malt, pumpkin and a fruity note. Sweet flavor with malt, pumpkin, caramel and a spicy note. Medium-bodied. Sweet and not very pleasant.

Gold pour. Fruity aroma, flavor of fruits and grapes. Weird, and not great.

TylerGreenDC (845) - - FEB 26, 2015
Draft. No aroma. Little carbonation. Tastes like sugared corn mash. Maybe bad lines? Cant imagine thus is as intended, but then again Ive never tried a squash beer. Maybe its just a not-good idea.

On tap. A: Cloudy gold with a thin white head. N: Squash, peppercorn, leaves, biscuit, cracker, honey, lavender, T: Sweet and lightly bitter. M: Light body, crisp carbonation, no alcohol. O: Easy drinking and delicious beer. The squash shines through very well and this goes down so easily.
