12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a hazy orange color. The head is a rather typical barely off-white shade about one finger high. Great lacing is left behind, but retention isn’t the best.
S: As expected, the spices are there. The spice component is low on sweetness, but high on nutmeg. I also pick up a bit of citrus peel, which adds a nice component to the (well restrained) spiciness.
T: Bitter citrus peel notes hit my tongue first. The spice notes, rather than immediately opening the flavor profile, sneak up near the finish to mingle with the citrusy flavor. Not much in the way of actual pumpkin (I’ve come to expect that now from the style). There’s even a mineral touch in the aftertaste. All the main flavors seem to exacerbate each others harshness - but at least it’s bland enough where it’s not really a bother. Right...?
M: It’s a crisp, dry brew, but also one that’s too astringent. I don’t like the coarse feel in particular. A light body and moderate carbonation makes it (at least) somewhat drinkable, though.
O: Pumpkin ales like Schlafly Pumpkin Ale and Full Tilt Patterson Pumpkin succeed because they don’t succumb to the pratfalls of the style. While not necessarily a total failure, this one doesn’t succeed because it DOES fall victim to the problems of the style - too much bitter spicing, not enough balance between the sweet and aforementioned bitter. My first real letdown from Smuttynose, but to be fair, I wasn’t expecting this to be fantastic.
(Bottle) Hazy amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Malty, spicy nose with dried fruit, pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, toffee and rye bread. Malty, spicy taste with notes of dried fruit, spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, clove), honey, toast, herbal hints of oregano and a balanced spicy bitterness in the finish. Medium body, mainly dry. Tasty and well balanced. Quite nice. LLaurin (483) - Motala, SWEDEN - JAN 26, 2017
Nose is very rich in flavours with pimpernell and some muscot nut. Looks really nice in medium amber with white head. Taste is like gingerbread and x-mas time. Palate is short but not bad. Iznogud (3808) - CROATIA - JAN 19, 2017
