3.05/5  rDev -7.6%

12oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

(A)- Pours a hazed deep auburn amber color. Some white froth.

(S)- Quite spicy up front with nutmeg and clove. Very subtle pumpkin to it; very spicy up front.

(T)- Very similar to the smell. Very strong spice notes; very little pumpkin though.

(M)- A good carbonation level. Overall, its a spice box with nutmeg and clove with subtle cinnamon. A touch bitter.

(O)- Overall, not bad, but wishing the pumpkin came through more to help balance it out.

Appearance: a coppery orange color. pretty good clarity and a brownish head that fades pretty quickly

Smell: pumpkin and pumpkin spice. nutmeg and cinnamon. pretty spicy smell

Taste: pumpkin is there but weaker. the spices also come on pretty weak. tasty just needs more punch. also has some astringency to it

Mouthfeel: fairly light for what it is.

Overall: a decent beer that kinda dulls out as you drink more.

12oz bottle
no date
oversized wine glass

A- A very coppery orange with a slight haze, thin off white head. spotty lacing.

S- A mild pumpkin pie, marshmellos, faint brown sugars, has a hint of nutmeg and cinnamon
that makes it noticeable but not strong. Smells nifty

T- Diluted pumpkin sweetness up front, some breadyness and spice in the middle and finishes off with a very odd bitterness that isn't quite hoppy, but bitter and not really to my liking.

M- Medium body with medium carbonation, has a slight creaminess to it.

O- Started off with a light sweet pumpkin smell which held promise. The first drink let me down as it was not even close to the nose and had that really not very good bitterness, almost metallic, which I thought wrecked it for me. Some may like it, I don't and wont be getting more.
