Appearance-Cloudy golden amber with an eggshell foam that dissipates quickly out of the bottle.

Smell-Cinnamon. Nutmeg. Pumpkin.

Taste-Lots of cinnamon, nutmeg and pumpkin. Same as the nose. Slight cherry from the ale itself but this is pretty much liquefied pumpkin bread.

Mouthfeel-Lighter style makes for easier drinking and has a great, long finish.

Overall-A little strange to be drinking in August but come October when the temperatures start to drop and yams are in season this is going to be a necessity.

A: Orange red hue with a slight head

S: Nutmeg; pear

T: Strong flavored full of cinnamon, nutmeg, and other spices; fair alcohol bite at first with a slight sweetness coming in later; this almost has a whiskey or Bourbon barrel hint to it

M: Warm;mildly carbonated; earthy feel left in the mouth

O: This is a good beer, above average. Unlike some beers, this actually seems like it was brewed with real pumpkins. This is definitely a go to pumpkin ale.

A) A beautiful crisp copper color what was crystal clear. The beer had a nice amount of bubbles and when poured there was almost no head.

S) There was a baked pumpkin pie quality to its nose. It had a sweet and caramel nose.

T) This is by far the best pumpkin beer that I have had. The pumpkin flavor is so forward and there is an amazing spiced note to it as well. This beer tasted like a baked pie with a slight toasted note from the malts and a nice hopped flavor as well. It was not sickly sweet and it had a nice finish. The beer was a little hot and you got an alcohol note in the background as well.

MF) Very creamy and smooth with slight carbonation. You can feel the heat from the alcohol as you drink this beer. In the finish the spices like to stay and dance around your mouth.
