Served on tap in a pint glass

Appearance – The beer is served a hazy orange color with a one finger of off white head. The head fades relatively quickly leaving a decent level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell - There is a big hit of roasted pumpkin with lots of spice of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and clove. A bit of a bready smell mixed with some caramel and brown sugar sweetness round the aroma out, and when mixed with the rest of the smells, create a very nice roasted pumpkin pie like aroma overall.

Taste – The taste begins with a roasted pumpkin and rather sweet flavor upfront. The sweetness is a nice mix of brown sugar and caramel. The caramel flavors take on a bit of a more toffee/buttery nature as the taste moves on, with some more bready and doughty flavors coming to the tongue as the taste advances. Some spice flavors of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and allspice, which are lighter upfront, get even stronger more toward the end of the taste. Along with the spice growing stronger, so too do some of the roasted pumpkin flavors. Along with these flavors increase, so to comes some hints of a citrus, vanilla, and ginger like flavors more toward the end, with the mix leaving a still quite smooth pumpkin pie flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side for a brew of only 5.6% abv with a carbonation level that is rather average. The moderate body is decent for the pie like flavors of the brew, although a slightly thicker feel may have been more appropriate. While an even lower carbonation may have accentuated the pie like flavors of the brew even more, overall the feel was still OK as it matched the abv well and did keep it a very crisp and easy drinking pumpkin brew.

Overall – A tasty, easy drinking, pumpkin ale. Lots of spice and roastedness with a good level of sweetness. A rather enjoyable drinker overall.

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

From the 750 ml. bottle. Sampled on November 22, 2013.

It pours a fairly clear looking medium amber with a modest off-white head that diminishes to a ring after a few moments.

The aroma has some toasted caramel malts intermixed with pumpkin spices as one would expect but nothing unique.

The body falls into the medium range with a smooth texture.

The sweeter and molasses malts tend to jump forward before the nutmeg, cinnamon, and other pumpkin spices do leaving them in the dust. But they do catch up ultimately with a quick, clean finish. It was not bad but not one that I would have every year.
