A: 5/5 Looks great! Radiant in the glass

S: 5/5 Smells like pumpkin pie!!! Nutmeg and spice and pumpkin and malt.

T: 5/5 Exactly like it smells but even more intense. How is that possible?? Huge cinnamon roll things going on, plenty of vanilla as well. Spectacular!

M: 5/5 Velvety and smooth. Perfect.

O: 5/5 Literally flawless interpretation of the style.

I love this time of the year because of all the pumpkin beers that come out. I tend to like the pumpkin beers that have a lot of spice and pumpkin flavor to them. I was a little disappointed with this beer. The reason that I bought this beer is because I wanted to try something new. The pumpkin and spice flavor is not as intense as I like and once you swallow the beer the flavor goes down with it.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 2.75

12oz can to pint glass

A- pours a clear deep golden yellow color with a small fizzy white head that disappears completely, leaving no trace of lace behind

S- cola and sugar candy aroma with hints of cinnamon. Also picking up an artificial caramel aroma

T- sugary and sweet up front with an artificial cola-like taste that kicks in mid-palate and continues into the finish, hints of cinnamon on a dry finish

M- medium-light body with moderate carbonation leads to a foamy-creamy mouthfeel and a crisp-dry finish

O- this one is just too artificial tasting, it reminds me or watered down cola with cinnamon, not a good example of the style
