[Shock Top] Spiced Pumpkin Ale @ 5.2% in a 341ml Brown Bottle

It pours like a cream yet has very little head. The colours swirl between an opaque orange and an almost translucent yellow. There is an almost imperceptible smell of malt and pumpkin. The first drink is so very smooth and creamy with just a light dab of bitterness. The pumpkin is subtle and the flavours of this fine ale feather your tongue in the same swirling manner as it sits in the glass. After viewing the visibly violent bubbles as it stands, you will be surprised how unnoticeable they are when this ale slides down your gullet. The thick creaminess has a stunningly light body.

The drink gets better and better which each sip, allowing you to slowly grasp the full measure of it's pumpkin spicing over time. Subtle, delectable, and relaxing; it's unfortunate that this is only a seasonal brew.
