Gourd-geous Brews--Nightmare on Mill Street Pumpkin Ale

Nightmare on Mill Street is one half of a Fall seasonal pack from Toronto, Ontario's Mill Street Brewery. It's a "wheat beer flavoured with pumpkin", that's sold in cool 355mL bottles that feature a flaming jack o'lantern.

NOMS pours a deep, hazy brown colour, topped with an off-white head. It has an enticing pumpkin pie aroma, with cinnamon and clove notes. Its fairly thin mouthfeel belies a robust flavour. There are notes of baked pumpkin and spices are pervasive. The back end is pleasingly bitter.
This was my first foray into pumpkin-flavoured wheat beers. It was an interesting brew--the body was a touch on the thin side, but the flavour was really nice. A bit more spice wouldn't necessarily go amiss either.

Rating: 7.0 out of 10.
