Deep cloudy amber, couple fingers of head stick around and leave a distinct line of lacing with every sip. Smells delicious -- pumpkin spice is strong but doesn't overwhelm the bready, slightly toasty base. Tastes briskly dry, crisp without much carbonation. The pumpkin is surprisingly subtle until the aftertaste.
I'm not a big vegetable-beer guy, but this is definitely the best pumpkin ale I've tasted. I think the key is the subtlety of the pumpkin and the dry, well-balanced base.
