I am always looking to try a new beer, and this one caught my attention. Although I am at times skeptical of fruity beers, this one was very good.
Appearance: A very nice golden orange with a fairly thin head.
Smell: The first thing i smelt was pumpkin pie and fall. It drew me in and made me more interested in the beer.
Taste: Just as the beer smelled of Pumpkin Pie, it tasted like it too, with a hint of alcohol underneath that.
Drinkability: I could have easily had more of this beer, and will likely make an attempt to find it in stores during the fall, it was well worth it.
Serving type: on-tap

Pours a dark murky amber with a 1/2" head that quickly fades.
Smells of spices...cinammon, nutmeg, pumpkin pie, baked pumpkin
Flavors follow the aromas...tastes of pumpkin, cinammon, nutmeg, vanilla, sugar. Sweet, but not cloying. Some warming alcohol burn to boot.
Sweet and medium bodied, a light carbonation, this is a good dessert sipper.
Overall, nice pumpkin ale, a little heavy on the spice, but it worked with the 9%abv. Would seek this out again.

This ale pours out a burnt golden color with a clear body filled with carbonation. The head the light and fluffy; its white and sticks around for a while and leaves no lacing until the head thins out, then the lacing become thick.
The aroma is sweet overall, banana first hit you when you open the bottle, after that spices and herbal mixes come through along with the pumpkin. There is a hint of caramel as well…
Fresh but not crisp, this ale does however spread out to gently warm up your mouth. The flavors are a bit dull, pumpkin spices, cloves and herbal tastes are prominent.
Its medium bodied and goes down well; there is a slight alcohol kick in its aftertaste.
Not a bad ale overall.
