Fat Head's Phantom Pumpkin
I made a special trip to Fat Head's in Pittsburgh on my last visit to the city for the Phantom Pumpkin, The beer pours an orange amber color with a thin filmy white head. The aroma consists of pumpkin and cinnamon with hints of nutmeg. The taste is light and malty with a surprising caramel base and a healthy helping of pumpkin. The beer dries a bit on the finish with cinnamon and an after taste of nutmeg. The alcohol content is 6.0% ABV. Fatheads has provided a very solid pumpkin beer without over-experimenting on it and it makes you think of Thanksgivings past when drinking it.
