DISCALIMER: THIS BEER WAS OUT OF SEASON WHICH I DIDN"T REALIZE UNTIL AFTER I DRANK IT. PERHAPS A BATCH THAT ISN"T MONTHS PAST DATE WOULD BE BETTER>
As a pumpkin ale, this beer was a disappointment. As an overall beer it is decent.
Pours dark amber with a thick white head that leaves some lacing.
Smells hoppy with a hint of pumpkin, not pumpkin in a dessert sense though, more like pumpkin in a vegetable sense. Kind of squash-like.
Tastes more hoppy than anything., Pretty bitter, but there is a very slight hint of pumpkin and spices at the end.
Medium body with some nice carbonation.
Overall it was decent. It really didn't strike me as a pumpkin beer and in sixpoint's defense it isn't advertised as a pumpkin ale really. There is a pumpkin on the can but it doesn't say "pumpkin ale" anywhere.

3.58/5 rDev -2.5%
On-tap 4/26/2013 at Track 84 in Warwick, RI, served in a tulip glass.
A: The beer is a light brown color, with a thin off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.
S: The aroma contains caramelized malts, pumpkin, some spice and some hops.
T: The taste starts out with a decent hops bitterness for the style. Then a thin malt character comes in along with some background flavors of spice and pumpkin. However, there is not much balance. The after-taste is slightly bitter.
M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is dry and slightly sticky.
O: A little tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, mild kick, decent representation of style, it’s certainly not one of the better beers I’ve had in the style.
