Appearance – The beer poured a nice pale golden color. There was about a finger of head on top. I couldn't wait to taste it, so I have idea how long the head would have lasted. After my first sip a very thin white head covered the entire top of the beer and no lacing was left on the glass. A constant flow of small carbonation bubbles flowed from the bottom of the glass to the top thin layer of head.
Smell – The smell is nothing more than pure fall. It smelled of a very deep dark pumpkin pie spice. I could smell the entire pie. There was a strong nutmeg smell followed by a hint of cinnamon and the beer finished with the scent of burnt graham cracker pie crust.
Taste – The taste brings you though exactly what the smell does. It starts with alcohol and carbonation to nutmeg, to cinnamon, to burnt pie crust.
Mouth feel – The beer is very light and very carbonated. So much carbonation that the alcohol taste stands out until the carbonation subsides and reminds the mouth of spice.
