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

A-pours an orange amber color with an off white head with average retention
S-pumpkin, spice
T-more pumpkin, nutmeg, all spice, cinnamon, the standard pumpkin pie spices. Definitely a brewed pumpkin flavor and not an artificial type of flavor.
M-medium bodied, good amount of carbonation
O-Its a different pumpkin ale and I really enjoyed it. The fact that the pumpkin doesnt taste artificial made the beer much more drinkable . Spices were very well balanced.

Retired? Are you sure? Date on bottle says 06-25-14. Early for a Pumpkin Ale, I must say.... But it doesn't seem to be retired.

Look: Pours a deep copper color

Smell: Pumpkin pie is the first thing that comes to mind. Cinnamon, nutmeg. The smell of dessert at Thanksgiving... in July.

Taste: Very nice, and subtle pumpkin pie flavor, with a maltiness flavor. Very little hop bitterness.

Feel: Medium bodied, smooth carbonation.

Overall: Great beer. Subtle pumpkin sweetness, and not overbearing.

I tend to steer clear of seasonal beers - so many taste more like potpourri and leave me wanting to scrape the flavors off my tongue. HOWEVER, this has a pleasant pumpkin smell and is exactly that - pleasantly pumpkin with a nice amber/autumn color. One MAYBE two would be my limit but I'm super glad I gave it a whirl.
