Best Quote During Tasting
There's a lot that happened in college that I'm glad cell phone cameras weren't around for.
|Aroma - Earthy pumpkin mixes with cinnamon, nutmeg and some subtle caramel. The malts are quite sweet and have a big wheat bread and bread crust quality.|
|Appearance - This clear copper beer has a thin, cream colored head that starts dense and thick but quickly recedes to a thin film.|
|Flavor - The spices in this one do a great job of being very upfront without being overwhelming. The most prominent of the spices is the cinnamon but nutmeg and other baking spices are perceptible, too. Overall, the beer is sweet but quite drinkable. The malts come across again as bread crust and do a great job of mimicking the "pumpkin pie in a glass" that a lot of these beers strive to taste like.|
|Mouthfeel - The carbonation is medium and the body is medium+. This one fills your mouth and coats your tongue which give it a soft creaminess.|
|Overall Impression - Like the past two days' reviews, this one was also in the mixed 12 pack I grabbed while in Denver. Of the three we've reviewed these last few days, this might be my favorite one. The spices were well done in that nothing was over the top and they really complimented the slightly earthy pumpkin that was just slightly perceptible. Overall, I'd say the mix pack was a winner. I didn't get to review the Graham Cracker Porter that was included in it (I drank all three of them and didn't have any left to bring back with me) but trust me, that one was delicious, too.|
