Beer Review, Punkin Ale

Dogfish Head Punkin Ale (bottle)
Milton, DE
7.0% ABV

Appearance: Orange body, completely transparent, no head at all. No effervescence. 3.5/5

Smell: Strong with pumpkin, slightly sweet, hints of spices. Notes of citrus. Inviting. 4.0/5

Taste: Hmm... surprisingly yeasty up front, sweet pumpkin in the middle, with a somewhat bitter aftertaste. Less pumpkin than expected. Slightly hoppy on the finish. 4.0/5

Mouthfeel: Moderate thickness, slightly chewy. 4.0/5

Drinkability: Very mild pumpkin ale, the alcohol is high but barely apparent. Very drinkable. One of the better pumpkin ales. 4.5/5

Overall: 3.95/5
