Served in a Second City glass.

Not sure where all of these SPH beers are coming from all of a sudden, but I'm not one to argue, especially when a new pumpkin beer is involved. This stuff pours a clear golden-amber topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose is a blast of thoroughly sweet pumpkin pie spices, all of which are undercut by a strong (and sweet) vein of caramel. The taste focuses on nutmeg, clove, and brown sugar, with the caramel being replaced by dried maple syrup, draining the majority of the sweetness from the proceedings, leaving only spice, spice, and more spice without any point. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, a generally solid pumpkin spice beer, though the heft of the spice on the tongue relative to all else will likely keep me from re-indulging in this during future pumpkin seasons.

12oz bottle, no bottle date, poured into a snifter

A- pours a clear amber-ruby color with a small fizzy white head that dissipates quickly, leaving nothing behind

S- pumpkin spice aroma with highlights of cinnamon, clove & nutmeg, mixes with vanilla whipped cream notes. Toasted caramel malt base with notes of raw pumpkin and spiced bread

T- nice mixture of spices up front, picking up a lot of cinnamon and nutmeg, vanilla sweetness seems to complement the spicing nicely. Sweet malty backbone gives flavors of pie crust, caramel, vanilla cream & raw pumpkin, more spices on the linger

M- medium-light body with low carbonation leads to a slightly foamy mouthfeel and a light creamy-dry finish

O- the addition of vanilla works well with the spicing, one of the better pumping beers I've had this season
