I had this for the first time Fall 2013 and wasn't a huge fan - it tasted a bit artificial and overly spiced compared to some of the other spiced pumpkin ales that I tried. However, I bought another 6 pack a few weeks ago (in spirit of the season) to find that it tasted much better. Not sure if they lowered the amount of spice or not but it came out nicely. Pours a golden color with a hazy colored head. Tastes of cinnamon and pumpkin with a splash of nutmeg. Combines really well with cider and other spiced liquors for when you're sitting around a fire!
