A- golden orange, nice head but no retention or lacing, good visibility

S- tons of sour apple and light spice

T- cinnamon, nutmeg, apple, pumpkin spice,

M- very light and watery but surprisingly refreshing

O- I actually really enjoy this beer. It's like a pumpkin spice hard cider. Not what I expected from the warmer, malty, and heavy pumpkins I'm accustomed to. I appreciate how refreshing and light this pumpkin ale is!

I'm surprised by the 69 BA rating, and angry about the bros 41 score. Without being prejudiced by the label or description, Pumpkinhead simply delivers a great tasting and refreshing product in this category. And unlike the more expensive Pumple Drumkin ($11 for 6), this one is inexpensive, widely available, and tastes like what it says it tastes like. I look forward to this one each fall.
