The fact that the bottle won't even tell me exactly where the beer is brewed should have been a warning sign for me when I went to buy a 6-pack. The bottle says that it is either brewed in Seattle, WA, Berkely, CA, or Portland, OR--so, basically somewhere from the west coast.
Pours a light copper color with a short head that leaves a bit of lacing with mediocre retention. Smell is dainty with some mild pumpkin and nutmeg. The taste has no backbone, and the pumpkin flavor, or at least what there is of it, isn't supported by the other flavors. There are likely some adjuncts in this one as something just tastes off.
Mouthfeel is too thin and too highly carbonated. It goes down like maybe a summer ale, and it could be a session beer if it didn't cost so much and actually tasted alright. Overall, this is a mass produced halfhearted attempt at a pumpkin ale, and I regret buying the six-pack, especially considering that it cost a few bucks more than it should have.

Sampling now on 2/6/14 though I had this back in 2012. Bottled chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a classic pilsner flute glass.
Pours a amber in color with a 1-finger white foamy head that settles down to nothing really fast. Actually no lacing is seen either. The aroma is light with pumpkin and spices. The taste is a little 'watered' down but you can taste the pumpkin with cinnamon and nutmeg with maybe a slight taste of cloves for the finish. Overall, it was alright.
