Wasn't expecting a lot as this was the first Pumpkin Ale I'd seen from Anderson Valley but I was very pleasantly surprised with one of the better Pumpkin Ales this season. Will recommend this one to friends as it was smooth with lots of mild fall flavors while still presenting a nice pumpkin flavor. Excellent.

Can to a pint glass. The only date is the total wine label, was put on the shelf 8/16

Pours a very dark reddish gold with brown hues. Pretty clear, a finger and a half of tan colored foam. Low carbonation, not bad lacing, okay retention

Smells ...like pumpkins. Lots of pumpkin and gingerbread along with sweet clove and cinnamon. Just a trace of alcohol on the finish

Taste doesn't follow as well, everything is still there though. Lots of pumpkin and gingerbread upfront, cinnamon and clove are present but a lot fainter than the smell would have you believe

Feel is a moderate body, not very bitter. Finishes a bit wet, no alcohol detectable. Easy to drink

Overall really pretty good. I'm pretty new to pumpkin beers but it's like drinking pie. A big thanks to Anderson Valley and many other breweries this year for putting these out so early. I keep forgetting Halloween is in August

A: 3.75 This pours a dark amber with a moderate head.
S: 3.25 The traditional spices are there, but quite faint.
T: 3.5 This is at the restrained end of the pumpkin ale spectrum, mostly with cinnamon. A little caramel malt offers some additional flavor, but otherwise this is fairly bland
M: 3.25 Neutral texture, low carbonation
O: 3.5 Not what I look for in a pumpkin ale. Boring.

Weighting (percentages): 20, 20, 40, 5, 15. Avg: 3.48

Poured from the blaze orange can into a tulip.

A: deep ruddy brown, almost opaque. rocky two finger head compacts to a thin disk and much heavy lacing. Fantastic.

S: faintly pumpkin-y and spiced notes, kinda like a hint of Thanksgiving in a deeper Oktoberfest.

T: Spices with pumpkin are very light and appealing, does not klonk you over the head. Very malty, then there's this light metallic bitter note that peeks up.

M: medium bodied with creamy notes and herbal at ultimate finish.

O: Is a good introduction to pumpkin beer for the uninitiated.
