A: Pours a mostly clear dark orangish amber in color with some light amounts of gentle visible carbonation along the edges of the glass and some dark golden yellow + peach + copper highlights. The beer has a half finger tall foamy light beige head that reduces to a large patch of thin film and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of toasted malts, pumpkin, and pumpkin pie spices (clove, cinnamon, and nutmeg stand out.

T: Upfront there is a light flavor of toasted malts with some light hints of brown sugar and caramel sweetness. That is followed by moderate flavors of pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices (clove, cinnamon, and nutmeg) and just a hint of cranberry tartness in the finish. Light amounts of bitterness.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth.

O: Another interesting spin on the pumpkin beer - the cranberry tartness is an interesting addition and makes the beer a little less sweet overall and a little easier to drink. Enjoyable though not the best (or the worst) pumpkin beer I have tried.

Picked up NB's new fall seasonal. Poured into globe glass. Nice pour, good coloring, burnt amber with a thick head. Faint scents of sweet pumpkin, spice, cinnamon. Not bad flavor. Pumpkin taste is subtle, not overbearing and not synthetic at all. The tartness from the cranberries is a nice touch. Nice balance with the overall maltiness of the beer. Mouthfeel is light and airy. Overall a nice pumpkin ale and worth picking up. Very drinkable.
