A - Poured a nice head with pretty good retention, eventually falling to a thin cap. Some lacing. Color is a deep hazy copper and slightly reddish hues.
S - Citrusy, a little bit of pumpkin spice, some hops citrus smell but also the cranberry smell.
T - A lot of flavor here but at the same time not overpowering at all. The flavor is very layered. Up front the I get the pumpkin flavor, followed pretty quickly by the cranberry flavor. Behind that I get just a hit of cinnamon that fades quickly, and finally after the other flavors have faded I get an aftertaste of hops bitterness.
M - creamy and full, very good for a fall seasonal.
O - One of the better pumpkin ales I have tried. I really like the variety of flavor I got from this one. The cranberry juice is a great complement to the pumpkin spice and really gives this beer some complexity that other pumpkin ales lack. I enjoy pumpkin flavors but am not as obsessed as some seem to be, but I usually give one or two of these ales a try every season. This is one that I would buy again.
