Really liked this one. Pours a dark brown with an off white head that slowly trails the glass as it fizzes. The smell is full of pumpkin and malt with some very interesting spices. The flavor was full of pumpkins in the beginning but the addition of cardamom (typically an Indian spice) gives this pumpkin ale a very unique taste profile that I think works great and gives a nice balancing spice to the usually very sweet pumpkin ales.

Pours a dark brown, light when held up to the light with an orangiah hue to it. A decent head with little retention and lacing.

Smell is mostly of pumpkin, clove and nutmeg. Light vanilla notes. Lacking on the cinnamon kick and spice, as most pumpkin ales seem to. Or maybe that's just me.

Same comes through in the taste. Maybe I'm just a cinnamon lover. But it needs that extra spice. Overall very smooth and enjoyable, definitely worth a shot.

And the sweet orange bottle is a nice souvenir.

This ale is quite a delicious pumpkin ale. It pours like a slice of pumpkin goodness deep orange and clear with a half inch of head. The aroma brings all the warmth of fall. The spices come through marvelously in the smell. The taste begins with the sweet flavor of the pumpkin then moves to all those wonderful notes of spice. The mouthfell is exactly what a pumpkin ale, the flavor of the pumpkin as well as the spices linger for a appropriate amount of time. If you come across this regardless of the venue, give it a taste.
