Review: Pumpkin Beer

Pumpkin Beer

Clear brown body with visible light carbonation, the head is whispy, not enough head retention to make the beer beautiful.

Strong pie spices and sweetness. The malt is layered in with the spices. No one spice dominates the others.

The flavor was in the nose, the beer was sweet with spices.

The beer fell flat for me here, it needed more body to carry the flavors. It was too dry and didn't stand up to the great and substantial flavors.

It was a good first attempt at a pumpkin beer.  I was happy with the flavor but I wanted more body. I would have added flaked wheat, oats, or Cara-pils. In the spirit of the old college try I am going to give this be a C, a good try but fatally flawed by a lack of substance.
