Appearance is a pale gold, way too light for a pumpkin ale. Decent white head to start and it actually does retain a bit throughout.
Aroma is...my god, yuck. First impression was of chemicals almost like some weird type of old candy, then I pick up a sweet cinnamon and nutmeg traditional of the style.
Taste is pretty offensive really. It starts out sweet which is kind of enjoying but then right when I swallow it is a big burst of wateriness and nothingness with spices added. Imagine if you add nutmeg, cinnamon, and allspice to water and drank it. That's the taste.
Mouthfeel is almost alright except for that wateriness and the carbonation level is weird, too low I suppose.
One of the worst attempts at this style I've had to date. Debating on whether or not to finish it.
