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.

Served in a bottle at Pilsener Haus in Hoboken, NJ

A: Pours a crystal clear dark orange/copper to amber in color with light to moderate amounts of visible carbonation.The beer has quarter finger tall off-white head that quickly fades to a very thin film covering about half the surface of the beer with a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of pumpkin, pumpkin pie spices (cinnamon and nutmeg), and caramel malts.

T: Light to moderate flavors of pumpkin with moderate flavors of pumpkin pie spice (cinnamon and nutmeg) that intensifies as the beer warms ups. There are some very light notes of caramel malts with just a touch of sweetness.

M: Light to medium bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: Easy to drink and enjoyable but not as good as some of the other offerings in the style.

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.
