Aroma: The first thing that you smell is the aroma of pumpkin pie, cinnamon, ginger, clove, and allspice, just like your grandma used to make, underlying that is a beer with a malt backbone, and little hop nose is present.
Appearance: Orange and very clear with a moderate, creamy off-white head.
Flavor: This spiced ale has the flavor of cinnamon, ginger, clove and allspice up front but is followed with a light malt character. Almost no hop bitterness furthers this seasonal favorite’s split personality, pushing it more towards a dessert than a beer. We like serve it with a candied rim for extra flavor, with cinnamon and brown sugar.
Mouth Feel: Medium body with moderate carbonation that is also silky and creamy.
Overall Impression: A harmonious marriage of spices and beer to give you the impression of pumpkin pie in a bottle and is quickly becoming a Mudshark Seasonal favorite. While it starts out with spice in the nose, it ends like a beer. If you’re a fan of pumpkin spice then you need to try this version.
