Some pumpkin comes through in the aroma, along with spice and a bit of a caramel malt character, as well as a bit of a vegetable note. The flavor is also a bit more mild in the pumpkin spice, with a little more bitterness than other pumpkin beers, though more like an under ripe fruit or herbal tea bitterness. The flavor reminds me of freshly raked leaves. Not as pumpkin heavy as other pumpkin beers, but it’s still there, and the beer itself seems better crafted than most. An excellent beer.

A copper/amber pour with 2 fingers of head, slow dissipation and a bit of lacing - unusual for the style. Smells of roasted pumpkin seed, nutmeg, clove. The flavor is a bit roasty, which is nice (especially as a breakfast beer), subtle notes of pumpkin spices, toasted bread.
Medium body with higher carbonation..
This drinks like a beer, brewed for fall season... Not like a pumpkin beer brewed to compete for the most pumpkin flavor. With my tiredness of pumpkin beers, I can appreciate this one.
