Pours a mostly clear amber color, topped with a nice, thick head that drops to a thin covering. Tart, spicy aromas...nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, dried berries, and some bready grain. Slightly sweet, pie spice blend, and caramel. Smooth medium body, a bit sticky. Not great...too much spice, not enough cranberry.

Reddish amber hued. Head is a couple of millimeters thick. Great clarity with this beer. Pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg with a touch of cranberry following in the nose. The mouthfeel is moderate as their is some alcohol here, but it is pretty smooth considering all of those ingredients. I get the pumpkin and cinnamon on the palate. At the back I get the spiciness of cinnamon and perhaps from the hops I get the pinpricks on the tongue. I get just shiny of cranberry in the aftertaste. It was used subtly and that was wise. I like a but more pumpkin flavoring in my pumpkin beers, but it's a good brew.
