New Holland "Ichabod Pumpkin Ale"
Pumpkin Ale (ABV 5.2%)

[Best served in a Lager glass]

Rating: 2.7/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 6/10
Palate: 2/5
Overall: 10/20

The pour was a hazy medium brown with a slight orange hue and a large (2-3 finger) off white rocky head that had decent retention and fair lacing that stuck to the glass throughout.

The aroma was mild of toasted barley malt, a mild herbal hop and a doughy yeast with notes of nutmeg, cinnamon and pumpkin.

The taste was very lightly sweet with a hint of nutmeg and cinnamon at first and moderately bitter with a strong taste of pumpkin rind and clove at the finish. The flavor lasted an average time with the bitter flavor lingering well beyond any of the other flavors.

Mouthfeel was light to medium in body, watery and a little dry in texture with a mild carbonation.

Overall this brew has so much bitter spice flavor that it just overwhelms all the other flavors in this beer.
