More of a pumpkin soda than a pumpkin beer.
It tastes like a cheap beer with artificial pumpkin pie spices added.
Light orange color, fizzy, watery mouthfeel.
It is drinkable, but not very enjoyable or satisfying.
Just about any other pumpkin ale would be a better choice.

Beer is ok, not much pumpkin too much cinnamon. ABV is rather low
compared to others. Typical fall favorite,
but not mine. Aroma and look there, but not taste.
