Appearance: Liquid pumpkin. Surprise, surprise! Like seemingly any of MCBW's beers, there is no head, and no lacing. Almost looks like juice.

Smell: Smell's probably the highlight. The aroma lets you know immediately it's a pumpkin ale, with a good bit of spices like nutmeg in there as well.

Taste: Interesting ... almost off-putting, to be honest. It's not great, but it's not terrible. It has this weird taste that certainly makes it memorable though... it really has a lot of piney character on the front, but then an almost cheap malt flavor on the finish. It's definitely better than any macro beer could make, but it's not a huge step up, unfortunately.

Motor City Brewing Works isn't known for GREAT beers, but rather decent ones. The highlight is their pizza ... I don't love this beer, but it's not bad. I can't say it's worth $6 for a pint though. I'd much sooner take their Pale Ale or Ghetto Blaster for $4 a pint instead.
