A: A pretty hazy medium copper beer with an orange hue. My head is a thin raft of long lasting off-white bubbles but I don't know if how the glassware was cleaned could be at fault.
S: Medium pumpkin and caramel malt with some bread malt and spices supporting. There is a moderate fruit ester that much like the spice is complimentary and not oblivious as to the origin.
T: The malt and spice take the led at a moderate level with a blend of pumpkin, crystal malt and some fruit close behind. Some of the lemongrass and cranberry flavors a distinguishable with a light tartness. The spice and some hops bitterness provide the balance against the low malt sweetness. It's a dry beer with a dry finish and a spice aftertaste that mixes with some fruit and pumpkin.
M: Medium bodied with a strong level of carbonation.
O: A good example of a spice, herb, veg beer. A bit more to offer than the typical pumpkin with some interesting additions; I like that neither the spice nor malt took over to overwhelmed the flavors.
