A: Very clear medium gold body with a white head that fades quickly and leaves no lacing.
S: There is a faint smell of pumpkin pie spices. It is very light but sweet smelling and pleasant. I don't pick up any hop aromatics or any scent from the malt.
T: I get cinnamon right off the bat. There isn't a whole lot more. In the aftertaste there is this nice very light doughy flavor, but the flavor is predominantly cinnamon. It finishes very clean, but disappointingly so, because none of the other spices really come through even in the aftertaste.
M: The mouthfeel is far too thin. It's carbonated well enough, but there is just no body to this beer at all. It feels like I'm drinking carbonated cinnamon water.
O: Overall I was very disappointed in the beer. I wouldn't recommend it, even if a person is looking for a pumpkin beer in a pinch. It just doesn't have enough flavor or body.
