look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Amber colored with a long lasting off white head. Nose is pumpkin, vegetable leaves and vines; sweet cooked sugar, light cinnamon and cooking spices, noble, herbal hops. Taste follows nose with big pumpkin vegetable flavor; a sour tang underneath and some noble hop bitterness. High carbonation and medium thin mouthfeel. Tastes like fall to me.

Poured from a 12oz bottle, enjoy by 121413.

Light orange body, decent head but fizzles to nothing in no time which no trace left behind. Aroma is better with aroma reminiscent of pumpkin pie and assorted spices. The flavor's a mess though. Disjointed spices and cinnamon with a watery malty base. Feel kind of numbs the tongue a bit in the end(!). Mild medicinal feel, not very good at all.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Appearance: Copper orange with caramel light hue on edges of glass. Hazy. Poured with thin white cap that dissapated, and completely dissapeared after a couple sips. Well carbonated.

Aroma: Allspice notes with caramel back.

Mouthfeel: Thinner than I anticipated, moderately dry. Tingly carbonation.

Taste: Spicy sweetness up front and finishes a bit orangey/citrus sour. Lacks malt quality.

Overall: A servicable pumpkin ale with some intrique, but falls short of the potential of the style.

Serving type: bottle
