Weyerbacher "Imperial Pumpkin Ale"
Weyerbacher Brewing Company - Easton, Pennsylvania USA
Pumpkin Ale (ABV 8%)

[Best served in a Lager glass]

Rating: 4.0/5.0

Aroma: 8/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 4/5
Overall: 16/20

The pour was a cloudy medium brown with a slight orange hue and an average sized (1-2 finger) off white creamy head that was mostly diminishing and had fair lacing.

The aroma had a strong cinnamon and nutmeg scent right off with a nice dark caramel malt, a sweet doughy yeast, a hint of allspice, a decent pumpkin presence and a mild alcohol tinge.

The taste was fabulously sweet and malty with notes of nutmeg and cinnamon at first, then progressed with a nice dose of pumpkin, a smidgen of allspice and had a smooth alcohol finish. The flavor was left hanging on the taste buds for a nice long time allowing one to fully enjoy the awesome complexity of this brew.

Mouthfeel was medium to full in body, very creamy in texture and had a nice prickly carbonation.

Overall an extremely satisfying brew that had all the flavors blending so well that any alcohol presence was almost non existent. It had a drinkability that was so appealing that it left you wanting more.
