Great South Bay Brewery – Splashing Pumpkin Pumpkin Ale (2014)

25 Oct

NicAA: Clear rust with a light head but fair lacing. Almost fruity aroma, with pumpkin, citrusy hops and light fall spices. 7/10

NicTM: Light, moderately carbonated. Caramel malt and touches of cinnamon and clove, creamy then fruity finish. Like a fluffy fruit bread. 7/10

NicP: Doesn’t taste artificial, it’s not drowned in spicing, and the citrusy hops compliment it. 4p

NicO: A great sessionable pumpkin for those who don’t want big spice or pie taste. No wow, just hmm. 73/100

AlexAA: Blood orange w/ no tracing and an oddly watery aroma of cinnamon, cloves, malt, & mothballs? 6/10

AlexTM: Spicy from all-spice, cinnamon and cloves, pumpkin is more vegetal than dessert like despite a heavy handed malt – even with all this, it’s all far too watery. 7/10

AlexP: Watery, crisp pumpkins just rinsed from the patch, but hiding from the seasoning that waits to attack from all sides. 4P

AlexO: This is the nice guy of pumpkin beers – he’s lost in a sea of pumpkin beers that all stand out for being spicier or sweeter or more savory or more ANYTHING. 71/100
