Good representative Pumpkin Ale, nothing unusual or memorable but this beer has plenty of pumpkin and pumpkin spices and tastes pretty good.

Pours a dense mahogany brown with a lot of orange/golden light coming through. Small antique white head with average retention and small streaks of lacing on the pint glass.

Aroma is pumpkin spices and gets stronger as the beer warms. Flavor adds some actual pumpkin taste along with the cinnamon/nutmeg etc.

Mouthfeel is smooth and a little on the light side. If you are in the mood for a Pumpkin Ale, this one meets all requirements.

Pours a clear copper color with a tight, off-white head that leaves chunks of lacing.

Smells of cinnamon, nutmeg, and some toasted malt.

Tastes of the toasted malt with plenty of spice. Malts lead off with caramel and brown sugar along with toasted bread. This gives way to some pumpkin pie spices with cinnamon mostly coming through. Earthy hop add on the back end before finishing with a lingering spice note.

Mouthfeel is medium with a smooth amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is solid with a more bready malt take on the style.

Appearance: Dark brown body that shows a dark red hue as light shines through it. Through the darkness it is still apparent that the beer is pretty transparent. The head is a lucious creamy light tan fluff that leaves great lacing on the glass.

Aroma: I pick up cinnamon and some clove. It smells pretty standard for a pumpkin ale.

Taste: There is a nice toasty bread flavor to this beer right up front. It's very delicious tasting and I just keep getting more bread characteristics...it's like eating wheat toast. A cinnamon flavor comes through, but I'm not picking up any other spices. The cinnamon is about medium strength but the base beer has a lot of flavor that pushes it out of the way a bit.

Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel is very present while drinking, but afterwards it is a bit thin. It has perfect carbonation. Not a lot of hop or grain bitterness. Pretty standard feeling overall. The beer is highly drinkable.

Overall: It's a really good pumpkin beer. If you're a fan of strongly spiced pumpkin beers it probably wouldn't be fr you. If you want just enough pumpkin spice to remind you that it is the fall, my recommendation is to try it. What I really like is that the base beer is tasty enough to stand by itself. Even if you aren't a fan of pumpkin spice, the nice toasted flavor in the beer really makes this a pleasant beer to drink. I'm going to pick up some more.
