Poured from a 12oz can into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep gold color, with a large off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains pumpkin, caramelized malts, some spice and a very faint touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out bready with a hearty but not too heavy malt character. Then some mildly sweet flavors of pumpkin, spices and caramel come in. The hops presence I mild and there isn’t much balance. The after-taste is slightly bready.

M: Crisp but not very smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: A little tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, mild kick, decent representation of style, this is not one of the better beers I’ve had in the style.

A very nice, approachable pumpkin ale. Pours a bright orange with an off white head. The smell is full of spice such as cinnamon and clove. The taste has a bit of pumpkin in the beginning and then and then a lot of spice. The flavor was refreshing and a little light, but it made for a very drinkable pumpkin ale that I can see drinking more than a few.

A nice clean amber pour with a finger if creamy off white head. Smells malty with subtle pie spices. Bready. The flavor is pretty subtle and enjoyable. Malty, bready, slight toasted notes with very subtle pie spices.
Medium body low carbonation and easy to drink for the style.
This is well past it's prime.. Pumpkin beer in march? But I prefer it that way. It's nice to taste that there's actually decent beer behind the pumpkin.
