Been holding on to this one for a little bit. Figured I may as well get to it.
Nice looking, but minimal head. The flavor is nice. Not sure if several months have toned it down a bit. If so, I suggest this for all pumpkin ales. It's a nice firm accent, but an accent all the same. Nice level of spices; again, an accent. A bit of a floral thing that I could use less of. But overall, it's a nice one. Been quite some time since I've had a pumpkin beer. Which is mainly due to fear of all the crappy ones out there.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a lightly hazed orange-copper color with a two finger head of an off white color. Seen within the brew are some particulates with tons of carbonation bubbles seen streaming up through the body of the beer. The head has a fantastic level of retention, slowly fading to leave a moderate level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is rather strong of a roasted pumpkin smell with some hints of a bready nature mixed within. Lots of big sweet smells are there as well being mostly of a caramel and vanilla nature, but also containing some smells of toffee and a bit of molasses. Along with the pumpkin and sweet, so too comes the pumpkin pie spices, with aromas of nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, and clove all present.
Taste – The taste begins with a nice roasted pumpkin flavor mixed with some notes of breadiness. Some caramel sweetness and well as a bit of toffee are in the taste as well creating a moderately sweeter flavor for the brew; at least upfront. Soon after the initial taste and enhancing as the flavors advances are flavors of the spices that were detected in the nose, with nutmeg and clove being the strongest. The sweeter flavors begin losing ground however as the flavor advances leaving a slightly drier taste in the middle of the flavor profile. Some flavors of earth and a bit of hay come to the tongue more toward the end of the taste. These are accompanied by a slight enhancement of the roasted pumpkin flavor as well as the sweetness which had dwindled in the middle of the taste. In the end with the mix of flavors that is present in the flavor profile ends up leaving a lightly sweetened and spiced and rather strongly roasted pumpkin flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel -The body of the beer is on the slightly thicker and creamier side with a carbonation level that is one the higher side. The thickness is quite nice for the pumpkin flavors of the brew with the carbonation level helping to accentuate the lighter sweet flavors, giving them just enough of a presence to keep the brew drinkable but not overly sweet.
Overall –A nice pumpkin brew that was not overly sweet, but yet had a nice balanced roasted and spiced flavor. There was just enough sweetness to enhance and compliment the spice and roasted pumpkin flavors.
