Straw colored and completely transparent. Weak, soda like head that disappears before your eyes and leaves zero lacing.

Smells sweet like cupcake frosting with minimal spices.

Not much malt flavor, faint bread maybe. Brown sugar sweetness is most prominent. No hop flavor. Pumpkin is very faint. Spices can be detected in the end but barely.

Light as light can be for the style. Overcarbonated. No texture.

Subpar. I like that it is not spice dominated like a lot of other pumpkin brews. It does have a strange sweetness though. Looks aweful, feel is terrible and not much depth.
