Michigan Brewing Screamin' Pumpkin Spiced Ale (bottle)
We sold out of this in a single day at my store here in Kalamazoo. It's smooth, clean, sweet, easy to drink... and basically nothing else.
Zymurgical Explorations rating: 6.0/10
Originally reviewed in text format on 11-26-2009:
"A: Pours gentle orange-yellow with a two-finger white head that dissipates quickly. Very slight haze.
S: Strong pumpkin aroma, sweet but also slightly dry, with a bit of hop bitterness underneath.
T: Sweet pumpkin flavor, very clean, with a bit of a spicy aftertaste. Perhaps cloves? Some nutmeg, some other assorted spices.
M: Moderate thickness, low hops, low carbonation. Very clean, easy-to-drink.
D: Overall very drinkable, if uncomplex. An incredibly accessible beer for those new to the style or to those who don't otherwise drink beer at all."
(I guess I was kinder to this beer last year.)
