12 oz. bottle poured into a SN curved pint (

A: Nice bit of cascade on a vigorous pour to make a thick 2 finger head with big bubbles, that eats itself rapidly. Amber, ruby brown body with a bit of lacing.
S: Immediately after popping the cap, it just smells like feet.
T: Spiced and odd mingling of flavors over all. Very different from the usual mix of fall seasonal beers.
M: Smooth with very little carbonation felt.
O: Not my kind of pumpkin beer. Just like nutmeg and cinnamon in a lager.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a very nice deep copper-brownish color with a small tan colored head. The head fades relatively quickly leaving just a trace of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is heaviest a vegetal/herbal lightly roasted pumpkin smell with a decent level of spice aromas of nutmeg, cinnamon, and allspice. Along with these smells are aromas of a caramel and brown sugar sweetness mixed with some hints of a more bready and roasted malt smells.

Taste – The taste begins with almost tasting more like a pumpkin porter then a lager. I got a roasted pumpkin flavor mixed with some roasted malt as well as some brown sugar and caramel. As the taste advances the roasted malt flavor loses a bit of ground with the brown sugar and caramel getting quite a bit stronger. The spice flavors of nutmeg, cinnamon, and allspice, which were rather light upfront, really start bringing it onto the tongue more toward the end. With a little bit of an increase in the roasted pumpkin and some light nuttiness coming to the tongue, one is left with a moderately sweet, but decently roasty and spiced pumpkin flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is thicker and chewier for a brew of only 5.7% abv. with a carbonation level that is on the average side. The thick body really accentuates the roasted pumpkin and spice flavors nicely all while the medium carbonation does a nice job for keeping it easier drinking and complementing the sweetness nicely. Overall, quite well done.

Overall – This is a rather nice pumpkin brew with a good roasted pumpkin flavor and a nice blend of sweet and spice. Overall, quite drinkable and enjoyable.
