I found this to be a pretty appealing beer. The idea of pumpkin flavored beer wasn't something that sounded great to me, but after a taste I was wanting more.
Drank this in a standard 16oz pint glass. Pours a clear golden color, very little head that fades to nothing. No lacing at all.
The aroma definitely hints at pumpkin pie, with a touch of maybe nutmeg or cinnamon, no real hops presence.
Flavor matches the aroma very well. Hints of pumpkin pie spices blend smoothly with the lighter flavor of this beer. No real hops characteristics to mention, but I don't think that is a negative for this particular beer.
Mouthfeel seemed a little oily, definitely lighter then I would have expected from a fall beer. Very drinkable, could easily be a session beer for anyone that loves the pumpkin pie presence.
All in all I thought this was a very good beer. It isn't something I would want a lot of, but I was disappointed to only have one bottle. I think it would wear out it's welcome reasonably quick, but then most seasonal beers seem to do that as well. Definitely worth a try if you like pumpkin pie.
