It is the two week mark into my pursuit for the pinnacle of pumpkin beers and either I am getting really sick of pumpkin or I have hit a dud. Sadly I think the latter is the case for Phillips Crooked Tooth Pumpkin Ale.
Crooked Tooth pours a very pale orange with some carbonation and sediment. There is little to no head on this beer. On the nose there is an yeasty aroma, which is a little off-putting. As you swirl the glass there are notes of pumpkin pie spices, mostly cinnamon, but they are pretty subtle. Crooked Tooth is the lightest bodied of all the pumpkin beers I have sampled and I do not get much in the way of a flavour profile from this beer. This one seems marked more by what it lacks than what it has going for it. There is no real finish to speak of.
I am pretty disappointed with this pumpkin offering so I am giving Phillips Crooked Tooth three candy corns out of a possible ten.
