A: Deep, clear gold/orange color. Poured a 1 finger off-white head that dissipated slowly to skim around the edge of the glass. Laced in a couple random spots.

S: All spice and pumpkin. Lots of intense spice.

T: Consistent with the nose. Lots of spice (yes its very spicy). Pumpkin well in the background.

M: Light body. Medium carbonation. Very heavy on the palate for a pretty thin beer. Spices linger.

D: Too much spice; gets old pretty quick. Can it be "mulled" beer?

On tap at Dry Dock, I don't seek out pumpkin beers but for some reason I am curiously interested as if one will actually taste liek pumpkin pie. They almost never do and this was no different. This was golden orange with a heavy perfume like spiced smell. The flavor was intense, lots of perfume, potpourri, cloves, vanilla, spices! Overall, this was just too intense.

on tap at the cheeky monk on colfax. poured orange with almost no head into a large snifter. not the serving type i would expect for a beer thats only 5%, but i guess the heavily spiced qualities require some sort of aromatics enhancing glassware. got this one insead of a slice of cake. smells quite spicy and strong, a bit of pumpkin pie filling smell going on, nothing of fresh pumpkins. taste is spice and vanilla, with canned pumpkin flavor. even a little hops show up in the background here. mouthfeel was a letdown as there was nto much carbonation and the body was thin. for me, a good pumpkin ale needs a slightly higher abv in spirit of the season. not a bad brew, but left something to be desired.
