Pours a translucent straw color with a thin white head that dissipates in short order. The aroma is a healthy blend of pumpkin and cinnamon that is quite enticing. The flavor profile is a little all over the place, though. Spiciness hits up front, tingling on the tastebuds, followed by a wash of mild pumpkin flavor. The finish is a big letdown, a blend of vague wheatiness and something akin to cleaning solvent. The cinnamon lingers uncomplemented after all else has subsided, leaving a cheap, watery "Red Hot" taste on the palate. The flavor does not live up to the aroma at all, which is disappointingto say the least. The overt cinnamon aftertaste pretty much overrides whatever else positive this brew has going on for it. Not one of the better pumpkin ales I've tried.
