I do believe this is the same as the Double Pumpkin that used to be on draft at the Foothills taproom.

Bright orange body with an initially powdery white head on top.

The smell is loaded with cinnamon and allspice, but theres a good bit of caramel sweetness to back it up. I do get some sweetened pumpkin scents as well.

I really like this beer. Its definitely a really balanced pumpkin. Inititally caramelly sweet pumpkin flavors come out, but then I get some spicy cinnamon and a bit of nutmeg. Some allspice comes in, but its an afterthought, as is clove. Not to say that those spices arent there (because they definitely are), they just almost get lost. The body is light, and it tastes like a well balanced pumpkin pie to me. Not to sweet, not too spicy, not too pumpkin-y, just right.

Bottle > Pint Glass

A - Clear gold half a finger of white fizzy head, no lacing.
S - Cinnamon sugar, apple juice, pumpkin puree.
T - There's actually a ton of bitter apple flavor in this, very off for this style, some pumpkin, a lot of cinnamon.
M - Thin, very metallic, and watery.
O - Terrible example of the style, while I thought the apple at the aroma would be good, it reflects bad in the taste.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Clear orangish red. Modest head.

Subdued but pleasant odor

Definite pumpkin taste - in the ballpark with the Lakefront pumpkin-wise. Unlike the Lakefront (granted that was a lager) this definitely has a solid and appropriate beer taste as well.

A solid fall beer that we'd order again.
