look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Pours a dark amber color with about one finger of white fluffy head that quickly disappears.
The scent is of a variety of spices; most notable are nutmeg, clove, and cinnamon. Alcohol is also very noticeable.
The taste is dominant of spices also, cinnamon and nutmeg mainly with some pumpkin flavor also. Again alcohol is very noticeable.
Medium body, a bit of a chewy feel, moderate carbonation
This was one of the better pumpkin ales I’ve had. The high alcohol content made it a little unbalanced but I still enjoyed it.
Serving type: on-tap

A: Foamy hed, with decent lacing. Lots of lacing. The color could be more inviting tho; lager.
S: Pumpkin pie and spices. Clove and cinnamon. Squashy. Vanilla. Raw pumpkin....pumpkin rind.

Pours a dark copper body beneath the ruby hues and tan head that leaves only a thin lacing around the glass.
Generous aromas of pumpkin and spices such as cinnamon and nutmeg float from the glass.
The flavor also offers pumpkin flavors with pleasant fall spices but the pumpkin in the flavor is more sweet pumpkin meat than anything else. There are also some woody stem and toasted malt notes.
Medium in both body and carbonation with a spicy pumpkin finish.
This is a pretty nice pumpkin ale with plenty of traditional characteristics and seemingly well balanced.
