Pours a dark amber tinted orange, moderate cap of froth. Scent quite muted, light spicing and moderate pumpkin, hint of green apple. Taste expands seasonal spices a bit, pumpkin is flavorful but relatively uninteresting, needs more sweetness. Medium bodied, fairly high carbonation. A good, but middle of the road pumpkin brew.

a nice clean amber pour with a minimal amount of head turning into a small rim of foam around the glass. smells of pumpkin pie, apples.
tastes a bit acidic up front.. kind of a vomit-like apple crossover... not saying it's a bad thing.. apples are actually not that bad coming back up! lol, but really though, it's a bit tart.. apply, then the pumpkin pie spices come up.. and it leaves a tart/acidic finish.
light-medium body.. nicely carbonated with a SLIGHT creamy feel on the lips.

i'm just either over the whole pumpkin beer thing, or this is the first captain lawrence beer i didn't really care for all that much. sorry guys, not your fault - i don't think! it's definitely very sweet.. so those looking for a sweet pumpkiny beer will be into it!

A. Very light bronze color. It is completely see through with a few bubbles popping up here and there. It has a white foamy head that leaves some lace.

S. Very soft malty scent, mixed with lemon.

T. It tastes more like a light ale than a pumpkin. There are hints of pumpkin, some sugar, some malt. But a very mild taste all around.

M. Cirsp and refreshing.

O. It's a good beer, but it lacks a real kick, which I like out of a pumpkin ale. Nice, but nothing that stands out, either.
