12 oz. bottle poured into a Flying Dog goblet

A: Burnished copper with a tinge of amber. No head, or lacing; just a collar.
S: Sweet malts, with this light oak/bourbon smell (definitely a spirit). Almost no spices.
T: Lots of pumpkin with just a bit of spice.
M: Light level of carbonation with just a quick breeze of bubbles.
O: Glad that this is in 4-packs, because I find it hard to go in on a pumpkin bomber (too much variability).

Popping the top this brew smells of cinnamon and spice and everything nice. Pours to a deep bronze with a foamy off white head. On the taste this is as close to liquid apple pie as you can get. Nice spices up front with a sweet pumpkin middle with a slightly bitter fade into the aftertaste. The 9% ABV is barely noticeable except for the mouthfeel that is thick like syrup. This is a great fall warmer upper.

On-tap at Three Cellars in Franklin, WI:

Pours dark orange with a thin white head that leaves lacing.

The smell is of the usual pumpkin spicings - done nicely - not too strong, not too weak.

The tatse is of pumpkin spicing - cinnamon, nutmeg, etc. with bready notes.

Quite drinkable for the style and abv. Carbonation level adds to the smooth character - not too weak or too strong.

A well-done pumpkin beer that reminded me of pumpkin bread.
