A - Poured a golden orange color with a one finger khaki colored head of fluffy foam. It left thin rings of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled of pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon and all spice.

T - Great balance of flavor between the pumpkin and the spices. Perfect blend of sweetness and bite.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A light to medium bodied ale.

O - Very well done pumpkin ale. I really enjoyed this one.

Pours a clear, copper color. 1/2 inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and good lacing. Smells of strong pumpkin, sweet malt, and slight spice. Fits the style of a Pumpkin Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and clear, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of spices, pumpkin, sweet malt, hint of hop, and a hint of pale malt. Overall, good appearance, feel, blend, and body.

Enjoyed on-tap @ the Kirkwood Station Brewing Company (formerly known as the Highlands) in Kirkwood, MO for $3 (happy hour special!). Tapped from the White Tap Handle w/ "Seasonal" on the side & PUMPKIN ALE w/ Stickers into a 16oz Nonic Glass.

Aroma- Super strong pumpkin and spice! Could have much more included in the aroma that I couldn't grasp because I was so impressed with how much pumpkin/pumpkin pie characteristics they nailed in this!

Appearance- Received with a 1 finger head that dies quickly. Has a deep copper body that has good clarity. Leaves very small lacing if anything.

Flavor- Has a light pumpkin taste with an extreme amount of sweetness and malt behind it. Very clean and crisp at the finish. Almost no hops are noticed.

Mouthfeel- Medium Bodied, High Carbonation, Smooth, and has a good amount of spice/pumpkin left on the palate.

Overall Impression- I'm VERY happy I was able to enjoy this one again! The first time I had it, was not impressed at all. I'm wondering if it was due to the condition of the growler and/or how it was kept (temp, age of beer, etc.). The aroma was unbelievable in this one! After that, very light pumpkin but still very enjoyable. An easy drinking pumpkin I would definitely come back to! Get it while you can this season!

Another fine brew from the folks at Highland. This pumpkin was the standard setup and quaffer - amber orange pour into the shaker pint with a small but sturdy white head resting on top.

Plenty of pumpkin, nutmeg and winter spice in both the aroma and the quaff. Sips fine and easily, just a bit of a bitter aftertaste starts to kick in after the first pint.

Glad to see them come out with the fall drinker, another reason to stop by for pint and good food.
