A - Caramel orange. 1-finger white head. Moderate lacing.
S - Yeast, light malt, a bit of cinnamon, and what I came here for... pumpkin.
T - Mild hops and honey. The pumpkin teases at first, then becomes more apparent as the beer warms up. Cinnamon and nutmeg add texture throughout and later at the back of the throat, and floral hops linger at the roof of the mouth.
M - Medium and a bit sticky on the finish, typical of a pumpkin drink. Light carbonation.
O - I found myself dangling the glass upside down to catch the last drops on my tongue. This is a deliciously well-rounded beer that never forgets that it is first and foremost a beer and not a pumpkin latte. I'll be stocking up for winter.
