Served from tap into a shaker. Poured copper with a half finger slightly off-white head that subsided to a minimal amount slowly. Maintained decent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, pumpkin, spice, brown sugar, and grain. The flavor was of sweet malt, pumpkin, pumpkin spice, and brown sugar. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty decent brew. I have always been a fan of this brew back when Cottonwood brewed it and was glad to see that Foothills is continuing to brew it. Same flavors and aromas going on as the one that I used to drink last year, but everything is a little kicked up in intensity. Pretty nice balance going on that keeps your palate on its toes. Definitely worth trying if you have not done so with the old one or the new one.

Served in typical Pint glass. Not huge fan of the Food and Spiced beers, but this was really good. I would definitely get this again. Has lots of Pumpkin Spice taste, but not overbearing. Very drinkable, great Fall beer. Would be a perfect choice of Turkey Day for sure.

From notes 10/29/11
Pours a dark, brownish amber with ¼” of bubbly head that has decent retention. The nose has notes of allspice, cinnamon, and pumpkin. The taste is caramel, allspice, nutmeg, cinnamon, pumpkin, and a hint of ginger. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and well carbonated.
Overall, a nice, balanced, drinkable pumpkin. It’s nice to have a pumpkin ale that’s not overly spiced.
