With the weather cooling and a freshly deposited paycheck, I visited my local beer store today and picked up a wide variety of seasonal beers. I'd never seen or heard of this one, and I figured, what the hell?

Big mistake.

Appearance: This beer pours a decent orange-ish amber color. I couldn't generate much head, even with a fairly aggressive pour. What little head it did produce (about a half-finger) disappeared almost immediately.

Smell: I detect a faint pumpkin-ish aroma, and a hint of either nutmeg or cinammon. But it's too faint to pin down.

Taste: What a disappointment! Yeah, I can taste the pumpkin, but it tastes...a little bit burnt, maybe? And I mean that in a bad way; I love nice, toasty malts, but those just aren't there with this beer. The prevailing flavors are of VERY mild pumpkin, a nearly imperceptible hint of spice, and...soapy water. Not good.

Mouthfeel: VERY little carbonation, and an absurdly light body. It's almost a vaguely pumpkin-flavored tonic water, minus most of the bubbles. Except it's oddly slippery, with essentially no body or heft.

Drinkability: I wasted money on a six-pack I'd never heard of. I'm tempted not to finish the first one, and the other five will likely be foisted upon an unsuspecting acquaintance in the near future. I've had worse, but this one's not worth your time.

Had this on 2014-10-15 in Columbia, PA

A - Orange-amber with a 1-finger off-white head that fades quickly and leave very little lace.

S - Mild pumpkin pie spice, light malt, slight vegetal. Very mild aroma.

T - Pumpkin pie filling, graham cracker. A mild vegetal/gourd flavor. The flavors are restrained and balanced. More flavor than the smell would indicate. A bit of sweetness, but also restrained. A little bit of bitterness in the finish but certainly within bounds.

M - Light-medium body and carbonation. Smooth

O - Looks like I like this better than most reviewers. Not the greatest pumpkin beer but considering the lowish ABV, good flavor and feel; I'd have it again.

Clear orange-amber colored ale with a medium sized tan colored head.

Smells of caramel and bread with with a mild spice scent.

Starts out on the sweet side with a big caramel candy flavor. Mild pumpkin spice flavor and bitterness.

Mouthfeel is OK.

Overall it is just an OK beer.
