Big and Bold with The Spice taste, if you like the nutmeg, cinnamon and spice to hit you this is the one to get

Solid Pumpkin Ale, I like the fact that it's not a complete nutmeg and spice overload like some of the other pumpkin beer options on the market.

Pours a dark hazy orange amber with a medium white head. Aroma is of mild pumpkin spices and nutmeg, and some caramel malt. Taste same as aroma with some mild hops bitterness. Sweet and mildly bitter on the end. Palate is a medium body with good carbonation. This brew is not overly sweet but I would have liked a bit more pumpkin spices in the flavor. Overall still a descent showing for a pumpkin ale, good overall.
