Dark orange-y amber. Bordering on light brown. Deep color.

Sweet vanilla, pumpkin spices, clove, allspice, and nutmeg. Has a fervent spiciness, but the mellow sweetness is appealing. Malty and sonorous. Hops are at a premium around here.

Thinner flavor than expected. Vanilla, clove, cinnamon, and pumpkin flesh. Malty flavors with added hop bitterness. Spicy notes also reminds me of coriander.

Drinks pretty easy. Has a good bout of carbonation. Body is unmemorably medium.

A good pumpkin ale. I would recommend.

Pours hazy copper with a large creamy head.
Nose shows cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves along with a soft but unmistakable pumpkin hit amongst sweet malty gingerbread notes.
More spices as flavours along with very subtle pumpkin, gingerbread and some herbal astringency. Wouldn't mind a longer-lasting sweet malty finish. Nonetheless, very enjoyable stuff.
Nice creamy mouthfeel. Could be just a little thicker though.

A: Deep hazy amber body with a thick creamy tan head. Good lacing and above average head retention.
S: Vegetal pumpkin, cinnamon & nutmeg aromas produce a very pleasing nose.
T: Flavors include roasted pumpkin & malt. Starts sweet, spiced middle and a lightly bitter clean hop finish.
M: Smooth medium bodied brew.
O: Good pumpkin beer that is more vegetal than spicy.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Pours dark copper with a thin head. A little lacing sticks.

The smell is of pumpkin and pumpkin pie spicing - also orange peel vanilla and herbal hops. Strong.

The taste is of pumpkin pie spicing and orange peel. Vanilla bean gives it a cream-like taste. A firm malt backbone and a hop bitterness add dimension, making it keep its "beer"character.

It is pretty smooth, with a slightly tinny aftertaste.

Overall, this is a nicely done pumpkin ale. Spices stand out but balanced. It has a pretty unique character to it!
