Exceptional pumpkin ale with a balanced profile and not too overwhelming pumpkin pie flavor. The aftertaste brings home the sweetness of the pumpkin, and solidifies this as a well-rounded seasonal ale. The aroma was very subtle, though, with not much to offer. Once again, Anderson Valley does it right.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.25

Appearance - Pours a relatively clear red amber with a sandstone colored one finger head. Retention is average, resulting in a near barren surface with a small island of suds in the center. Not much in terms of lacing.

Smell - Typical pumpkin ale aroma: pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg with touches of pie crust character.

Taste - Follows the nose. Plenty of spice with pumpkin and a malt character that hits toward the finish and teeters on burnt pie crust.

Mouthfeel - Light, thin body with low, tingling carbonation. Easily the worst aspect of this brew.

Overall - Your average craft pumpkin ale; drinkable but not very rewarding. Glad I was able to try it, but this does not make my short list of pumpkin ales worthy of buying.
