look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

This 12 oz bottle was poured into a perfect pint glass and enjoyed at about 40 degrees.

Pours a murky orange brown with a fizzy off-white head which dissipates quickly without any lacing or retention to speak of.

Smell is of nutmeg, cinnamon, various spices, a little pumpkin but not too much.

Taste is of similar spice profile to the nose with cinnamon and nutmeg, not really pumpkin forward but I prefer this subtlety. Mildly bitter, mild sweetness, bready finish with hints of spices and pumpkin on the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is light, crisp, a little watery, smooth, with a somewhat dry finish.

Overall, I found this to be a good representation of the style, and while I'm not a big fan of pumpkin beers in general, I found this to be more about the spices which was much more appealing. Would drink it again.

This one is in honor for my late Pops, John O. "Jack" Chandler, who upon hearing of a French television crew coming to Lancaster to interview bicyclists, changed his name to "Jacques Chandler".

The pour netted a finger of very fizzy, tawny head that quickly dissipated. Color was a very hazy deep-copper (SRM = > 13, < 17). Nose was incredibly spicy: nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon, vanilla, very EVOcative of Fall, at least on the nose. Mouthfeel was medium, but the taste was quite EVOcative of pumpkin pie. The cinnamon/nutmeg/vanilla flavors were really big, but I just wished that the mouthfeel had been creamier. It was certainly spice-driven, but I just was not feeling it. Finish was dry, spicy, but not of anything to separate it from the rest of the growing pack.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Burnt orange with an inch of khaki head, tiny bubbles near the top, no noted lacing.

Aroma is of spiced pumpkin,straight up.

Taste is pleasant and similar to the nose, but not exceptionally complex.

Mouthfeel is light to medium, medium level of carbonation tickles the tongue just a bit.

Okay, this is a nicely flavored pumpkin ale, but after enjoying a Williamsburg Alewerks pumpkin ale, I feel I may have been permanently spoiled to what the rest of the brewers are attempting to achieve with a fuller, more pronounced spectrum of spices. Worth trying and an enjoyable brew by all means.
