Poured into a mason jar: color is gold, head is bright white but dissipates quickly to a ring, no lacing.

Aroma is probably the best quality of this ale: light spice, good amount of wheat, subtle earthy, fleshy pumpkin.

Taste is thinner, as described it is refreshing, a lighter pumpkin ale. Flavor is crisp, good amount of wheat, subtle pumpkin and moderate spice; spice is ginger, clove, all spice and cinnamon.

Mouthfeel is a bit crisp and lager like for a pumpkin ale.

Overall, a thinner, crisper pumpkin ale - not my preference but not a bad take on the style
