look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Sampled at The Spot in Bethel, CT.
Light amber gold with a small thin white head slightly cloudy maybe chill haze. Smell is cinnamon, nutmeg slight pumpkin and other spices no malt or hops. The taste is pumpkin pie and nothing else, quite strange actually it is just like liquid pumpkin pie but in an overly sweet and not very satisfying sort of way. The mouthfeel is too light very lager like too bubbly with a sweet finish. Drinkability is not very good it's just too damn sweet it is hard to take the next drink there are many better pumpkin ales but since this is the first I've seen on tap this year so I figured I'd give it a try now I wish I didn't.

Serving type: on-tap
