Terrapin Beer Co. – Pumpkinfest (2013)

NicAA: Light head floats on hazy burnt sienna brew, giving big whiffs of cinnamon and sweet pumpkin with hints of molasses. 9/10

NicTM: All business upfront w. heavy allspice and cinnamon, moving to unexpectedly light finish, marzen-esque. Unique. 9/10

NicP: Smooth puree, which is often bland but here works well and balances with the aggressive spice and malt. 4p

NicO: Generous spice but not overdone, and light Octoberfest style finish means you can enjoy a few. I like Terrapins. 89/100

AlexAA: cinnamon, nutmeg, and pumpkin mix in a heavily sweetened aroma off of this hazy blood orange brew 7/10

AlexTM: mildly tart, big burst of cinnamon & nutmeg w/ sweet pumpkin following, & the lightest of bitter hops in finish. 8/10

AlexP: Plays bigger role in aroma, but balances out what could’ve been heavy handing of spices. Needs a malt anchor tho. 4P

AlexO: Pleasing, not pushy, hits many tastes quickly. I’d drink again if served, but wouldn’t seek out on own merit. 79/100
