Notes/Commercial Description:
Although this is a pumpkin beer, it is a lager and therefore doesn't belong in the pumpkin ale category. Originally a Side Project, now a Fall seasonal in six-packs.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Lightly chilled 12 oz. bottle into a stemless tulip pint. 2012 vintage.

Look- Clear medium amber with an interesting orange tint. Pour leaves three fingers of dense off-white foam that settles to a finger and a half of craggy head. Nice lacing.

Smell- Standard but pleasant pumpkin and spice aromas, sweeter than expected with a distinct biscuity graininess. Swirling brings out a more floral, savory pumpkin spice aroma. This one quite reminds me of pumpkin pie.

Taste- Lighter and a bit plainer than anticipated after the aroma, strong toast and dry spice (nutmeg, allspice, ginger.) Overall impression of brown sugar, but not what I would consider particularly sweet. Herbal, tealike hops compliment nicely, leaving a savory gingerbread flavor that lingers.

Mouthfeel- Medium body, very light but present soft carbonation. Silky, rich texture. Comfortable autumnal heft. Not too heavy, I could have a couple of these with dinner.

Overall- A distinctly better-than-average spiced pumpkin ale. Not too flashy, not quite a dessert beer, packs plenty of distinctive flavor without being overbearing and feels like something you'd want to drink on Thanksgiving with mashed potatoes and stuffing. Recommended, I'd buy it again in season if I had the opportunity.
