From a tap. Poured a very nice, reddish color. You can taste the pumpkin spices and flavors but it does not overwhelm the beer. As it warmed a little you could taste pumpkin flavors a bit more. The smell was also subtle but definitely pumpkin pie. Overall a beer worth trying, a solid one for me that I'll seek out next year in bottles up in NC.

Just newly released, this was out 6th beer in an all-NC beers tasting with BA styleisking.

[Appearance: 3.5] It's a pretty coppery color with a slightly more than wispy off-white head that foams up to a firm layer and releases some heavy spotting.
[Aroma: 3.75] Pie spices are prominent here without being overdone, with nutmeg, clove and cinnamon seeming discernible. It would be a solid 4 is the pumpkin flesh gave a stronger show, but it's there behind bready malts and, of course, the spices.
[Flavor: 3.5] Pumpkin flesh is squash/vegetal and placed behind the spices which, again, work very nicely. Malts give a little caramel sweetness and bread.
[Mouthfeel: 3.25] The medium body holds for most of the time but thins a touch in the end, while carbonation goes a bit too effervescent and then spritzy to hold a firm crispness either before or after the middle, though it achieves that much.
