Terrapin Pumpkinfest

While at a booze bake-off at Shady McGrady’s in Harrisburg, I ordered a glass of Terrapin Pumpkinfest. The beer pours a brown color with a bubbly white colored head. The aroma consists of cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, and caramel. The taste is light with pumpkin but strong with cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice flavors. There is a dry finish that leaves cinnamon and toasted malts behind. The alcohol content is 6.1% ABV. I’d say that Pumpkinfest was a pretty decent fall seasonal, but could benefit from a little more pumpkin and slightly less spices. I would order it again, but there are also better pumpkin beers out there.
