The Thanksgiving weekend is winding down, and so is this series. For the last pumpkin ale I’ll be reviewing this year, I’m having a Terrapin Pumpkinfest malt beverage, brewed with pumpkin and spices. There’s pumpkin and nutmeg on the nose, a it’s got a medium body with pumpkin, cinnamon, and other spices in the middle. It’s got good spice flavor, but not overpowering. There’s more sweetness here in the middle and the finish than with most of the beers I’ve reviewed this series, but not as much as there is in Dogfish Head’s Punkin Ale, reviewed earlier in this series. This is a seriously nice dessertyish pumpkin ale.
I give it a 4.3 out of 5.
This is part 8 of a 8 part Thanksgiving weekend series.
