look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: The beer is relatively clear dark amber in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin dense tan colored head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface, a collar around the edge and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light aromas of pumpkins and pumpkin pie spices are present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell but the flavors are a bit stronger and there is a little bit of sweetness. Among the spices, nutmeg seems to stand out in particular.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer has a good balance between the pumpkin flavors and pumpkin pie spices and also isn't too sweet, but both the smell and taste seem to be too weak. Nonetheless, the beer is very easy to drink.

I poured this from a 12 ounce bottle into a pint glass.

The first thing I noticed was the lack of head as I poured the beer. There is may an eighth of an inch atop the beer. The beer's color is a dark chocolate color with amber hues against the light. Lacing is also minimal.

The smell improves on the appearance, although a smell of vegetables is strange. Fortunately, pumpkin, mild spice and subtle malt emerge eventually. As for the flavor, there is much to like in this department. The beer has nuttiness, caramel notes, spice, cinnamon and nutmeg, vanilla, and a bit of pumpkin pie flavor. The sheer number of different tastes that emerge is surprising considering the less than notable nose and appearance. The beer tastes pretty good.

The mouthfeel too is good, with light carbonation, some sweetness and mild dryness.

Overall, the beer would not be my go-to pumpkin ale, but it is one I'd return to.

12oz bottle with no date, poured into a new belgium tulip glass

look is a very clear dark ruby color, with a thin spattering of mocha head. smell is heavy pumpkin spice, lighter pumpkin. taste is biscuity sweet malt at first, with a heavy (burnt?) spice presence on the finish. has a cloying feel to the finish, almost waxy.

i feel like i can taste the molasses in there... yeah, i won't pick this one up again
