Not expecting a whole lot from this pumpkin beer, with spices from a brewery that makes meh beers in general.

Pours a smaller 1/2 finger fizzy airy head that surprisingly sticks around for a while, nice lacing too, a clear but dark colored mahogany brown slight ruby hue.

Nose brings baking spices out front, cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, all spice I think, perhaps a pinch of nutmeg but hard to tell that even, sweet candy malt, with caramel toffee, and syrupy aromas, a mild biscuit note, a light pumpkin note, sweet pumpkin pie like but just a little. The spices, while dominant, aren't overpowering, so far at least.

Taste starts with tons of toffee and caramel syrup, a doughy bread and biscuity crust like character, as well as cookie, with plenty of ginger bringing a gingerbread cookie flavor with icing. Mild pumpkin note, very little actual pumpkin, and more baking spices, again touch of cinnamon and cardamom, perhaps all spice and others but not sure. A rich creamy almost chewy like syrupy base malt with fair sweetness, and a touch of bitterness mostly from the spices. Finish is sticky sweet, a touch dry, little syrupy taste lingering, more baking spices, gingerbread, and caramel syrup lingering.

Mouth is med bod, a little syrupy smooth feeling, decent carb.

Overall mixed feelings, it started nice, spices weren't overpowering, but don't get a whole lot of pumpkin, and plenty of sweet syrupy characters, thankfully also not too much, but still not a very enjoyable beer and hard to drink more than a glass, but not that bad.

Poured a brown body with one finger head and minimal lace and an aroma that has some sweet pumpkin and cinnamon/nutmeg notes to it but also a little graininess.
Not a bad pumpkin beer in the sense that you get a good amount of pumpkin spice and requisite sweetness that can be in pumpkin beers.
Just a little bland and watery and has a slightly off-putting dry finish, like there's too much hop or spice that builds up.

Aroma of cinnamon and clove, but not overpowering. Loads of cinnamon in the flavor. I even think there's a bit of cocoa in this. Not much in the way of pumpkin. Little kick of carbonation.

Pretty tasty. I could definitely see knocking back a few of these while watching football
