This strong malty Ale takes on the vegetable flavours from real pumpkins used in the mash, leaving a clean finish with subtle pumpkin pie spices.

A: Amber-copper with a light tan head, good retention and lace.
S: A restrained spicing: cloves with hints of cinnamon; caramel, brown sugar. Pleasant, but doesn't scream pumpkin ale.
T: Restrained bitterness allows a light residual sweetness to come through, while it's not overwhelmed by spicing. I like that in a pumpkin ale. Brown sugar, biscuity, definitely some caramelization, cloves, vanilla, ginger, hints of nutmeg and starchy vegetable. Alcohol is subtle initially, but comes forward as it warms. I don't like a lot of spice, but I'd put a bit more nutmeg in this one.
M: Moderate to full body has a light residual sweetness; modest carbonation.
D/O: Symphony of flavours that really works. The light sweetness is complimented by the restrained spicing. Well-crafted and very drinkable.
