Poured clear into a snifter. Half inch of white, bubbly foam that had low retention, becoming just a minor sheeting over the top of the beverage. A little bit of blotchy lacing.
Aroma is a pleasant combination of nutmeg, cinnamon, and light pumpkin. Probably one of the better pumpkin beers I have had in terms of balance on the sniffer. Similar to Moms' pumpkin pie that I had a few days ago. If the taste follows: potential for a great pumpkin beer.
Taste has hops up front and finishes with some spice and bitterness from more hops. The spices: nutmeg and cinnamon, make up the middle of the beer with the aid of pumpkin flavors to boot.
Medium bodied with a fair and complimentary amount of carbonation. Crisp, mouth watery finish to the beer.
At first the hops didn't agree with me but after a few more sips, the hops, spices, and pumpkin are all keenly woven into a very satisfying rue. Definitely the best pumpkin beer I have had. Glad I have an entire bomber to myself. Enjoy!
