Mini Beer Review: If you're a true beer enthusiast, you are likely well aware of the reputation Dogfish Head Brewery has rightfully earned. In fact, this particular pumpkin ale is often regarded as one of the best in the North America. So does it live up to the hype? Let's take a closer look!
Appearance: At first glance, the colour is truly stunning. The medium amber hue embodies a true pumpkin ale.
Scent: Initially, brown sugar and nutmeg jumped out at me, but I also eventually caught some pumpkin on a second attempt.
Taste: During my first sip, the pumpkin flavour was quite subtle, but eventually settles in nicely along with the additional spices.
Overall: Add this to the endless pile of overwhelming positive reviews. It easily ranks among the Top 3 pumpkin ales I have ever consumed. I was shocked that a beer with a higher percentage of alcohol could be so drinkable. A winner on virtually every level imaginable.
