Interesting, not as strong a clove presence as some other pumpkin beers. Much lighter but still enjoyable. Would purchase again.

12 oz. bottle poured into a Libby craft glass.

Appearance: Pours a slightly murky orange-amber with a finger-width white head that sticks around forever with slight dissipation. Some somewhat heavy lacing on the way down.

Aroma: Pumpkins, and lots of them. Smells quite a bit like pumpkin pie. Some spices and a floral note, too.

Taste: Pumpkins, cinnamon and spices lead the way. Nice composition. The pumpkin flavor is bold and has a spicy character, but isn't cloying or overpowering.

Mouthfeel: Nice autumn depth, similar to that of an amber ale.

Overall: A swell pumpkin ale. This or Smuttynose will likely be my go-to pumpkin beer, since it's 2014 and everyone needs one.
