Had two pints at dinner with Braised Short Ribs in Philadelphia. Not a spicy as I anticipated. Didn't get too much from the nose. Very tasty and drinkable. I think it's a nice fall selection beer on tap. I recommend it. It's not very hoppy and can be a session beer (in a safe environment, of course).

enjoyed this 12oz chilled from the bottle in a tumbler at Wegman's, review from notes.

The color is deep crimson with light haze and thin beige cream with fine bead. The smell has a good amount of spice with ginger and cinnamon and light sweet scent of malt with subtle fruity yeast scent. The feel has a moderately high amount of carbonation with medium spiced body with light sweetness and semi-dry finish with low alcohol influence on the palate.

The taste is very good with nice spice flavor up front with light spice flavor up front with fruity element and caramel in the malt with dry cinnamon-like woody element in the spicy dry finish. This is a pretty good dark lager with some spice flavor -very crisp character with good blend of malt and spice flavor

A: Clear, medium-dark amber with a touch of red, and a thin head of khaki foam that quickly fades.

S: Typical pumpkin pie spices, along with the fruity aroma, but this one has a potent bready aroma as well.

T: A fair amount of initial sweetness from the malt. As the sweetness starts to fade, it is joined by a fruitiness that isn't pumpkin... I'm not sure what it is, but it's not bad. The spices then show up, and are perfectly balanced against the other flavors. After a lingering moment, faint hops bitterness appears for the finish, but never in an overly assertive way.

M: Crisp, with more carbonation than I'd expected (with the anemic head). There's just a touch of dryness in the finish.

O: A very drinkable pumpkin lager. I notice that I'm guing rather than sipping - I need to buy a few more of these.
