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.

A: Pours a crystal clear dark orange to copper in color with some highlights of amber and light to moderate amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall dense light beige head that reduces to a large patch of thin head and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Upfront the aroma of this beer is all pumpkin and it smells quite natural (no hints of artificial flavorings) and lighter aromas of pumpkin pie spices including cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg.

T: This beer has a very pleasant flavor of natural pumpkin and caramel malts with some lighter notes of cinnamon and nutmeg. Light amounts of non-lingering bitterness in the finish.

M: Slightly lighter than medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation.

O: I enjoyed that this was a pumpkin beer with lighter hints of pumpkin pie spices rather than liquid pumpkin pie - since this is not sweet I find it much easier to drink and more enjoyable. Definitely one to have again.
