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.

12oz can poured into a glass. It has a orange color body with a small head to it. The aroma has a slight hint of spices not a lot of pumpkin. The taste has a little spice to it and I don't get a lot of pumpkin. Mouthfeel is good and overall a ok pumpkin beer.

12oz can poured into a pint glass

Clear orange amber liquid with faint carbonation leading to a thick two finger cap that settles with nice lacings.

Nose full of spice, little pumpkin, little cinnamon.

Not overpowering pumpkin taste but more like a beer with a wisp of pumpkin. Medium mouthfeel. Smooth with mainly clean finish. Hint of a hop bitterness aftertaste on back of the tongue.

I generally don't like this type of beer. This is one that I do like , would buy and drink again. One of the better pumpkin beers of the season. More treat than trick!

A: The beer is hazy orange amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short off white head that quickly died down, leaving a bit of lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of pumpkins and spices are present in the nose; ginger seems to stand out in particular among the spices.
T: The taste mostly follows the smell and has flavors of ginger spices and pumpkins along with hints of malts and a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels just about medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer goes down rather easily, but the pumpkin and spices are not as prevalent in the aromas and flavors compared to other pumpkin ales. You really need to let this beer to warm up for the smell and taste to strengthen a bit.
