Smuttynose Pumpkin Ale
I know its hard to see(damn camera phone), its Smuttynose Pumpkin Ale
Aroma is mostly pumpkin, with some pumpkin spices and bready malt also noticable. Taste is pretty much like the aroma, with the pumpkin flavor being the strongest. Pumpkin spice, bready malt and hoppy flavors are noticable too. There’s also a slight bitter finish. I don’t think this is as spicy as a lot of the pumpkin brews I’ve tried before. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, with decent carbonation. Drinkability is OK, it’s easy enough to drink. Not a bad brew overall. For the style, it’s a decent enough beer. It’s definitely worth a try.
