Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass. Served chilled.

A) Slightly hazy orange, with plenty of visible carbonation. Virtually no head, and no lacing to speak of...

S) Decent pumpkin aroma. A hint of sourness to this one, and faint spices.

T) The pumpkin flavor is more pronounced on the nose. The pumpkin here was thin and watered down. Light spice hits the tip of your tongue, but quickly dissolves. The finish is a bit of grass and light gourd, which kind of reminds you this is a pumpkin beer. Lackluster aftertaste...

M) Light bodied brew. A little to thin for my liking. There was a good amount of carbonation. While not thrilled with the mouthfeel, it was pretty easy to drink.

O) If you are in search of a good pumpkin ale to enjoy this Fall, move along, there is nothing to see here.

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.
