Pretty disappointing. It's basically got the appearance of an American macro with a slighty orange hue. The head is a bright white, not quite a finger thick, with mediocre retention.
Par for the course. I wouldn't call the smell that of pumpkin, but rather pumpkin pie spices--cloves, nutmeg, maybe some cinnamon.
Doesn't have much of a malt backbone, so it's not terribly balanced, but if you like pumpkin pie, the beer is not too bad. There's nothing for the spice to stand up to and no hop presence in the finish.
Light-bodied. All spice. Some carbonation.
A very average beer. Relatively easy to drink if you like pumpkin pie spices, hard to swallow if you don't. It was very average to me. Could use more malt, less spice, and more alcohol.
