A: Pours out a clear golden color with a small fizzy white head. Quickly subsides to nothing. No perceptible lacing. Odd, not even a trace of orange in it.

S: Cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, pumpkin. Strong on the spices. Wheat from the malt?

T: Mostly pumpkin spices as mentioned above. A hint of buttery pumpkin in the aftertaste. Can taste some wheat too as it warms. Taste is pretty mild.

M: Somewhat high carbonation. Pretty thin.

O: Pumpkinhead was my go-to pumpkin ale for years. Once I discovered a good beer store and BA I have tried many many pumpkin ales since then. This is still a very decent pumpkin ale but not the great one it used to be (for me). It's a great crossover beer, all of my BMC swilling friends love it still. I give it extra points for this, especially since it was the start of my craft beer drinking experience.
