3/5  rDev -17.1%

A hazy light orange pour along with an ok nose of pumpkin spices. Cinnamon, nutmeg, etc.

Light and fluffy mouth feel with subtle pumpkin flavor. The taste really parts from the spices on the nose and sways toward that of natural pumpkin flavor. But the flavor comes up short and the mouth feel is just too light and even watery at times.

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

Appearance: 1 inch head, orange-brown in color, hazy, high carbonation

Smell: nutmeg, cinnamon and clove

Taste: nutmeg, cinnamon and clove with an earthy hoppy end

Mouthfeel: sweet with light bitterness towards the end, medium carbonation, light bodied

Overall: This is an average pumpkin beer in every way. It delivers all the flavors that you would expect from the style. There is a bit of bitterness right at the end, but outside of that it is a straightforward pumpkin ale.

Poured pretty fizzy. Not much head retention. Dissipates quickly. Color is copper, auburnish. Aromas of baking spice, pumpkin flesh, vanilla notes. Follows through on the palate but mouth feel is much lighter than expected. Flavors don't linger long. A crisp light pumpkin ale.
