Good pumpkin beer that complements slight pumpkin and spice well, as well as keeps the integrety of a beer flavor ( not overkill on the cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, etc). Medium mouth feel with more pumpkin aromas than taste. Good session pumpkin beer overall and would recommed for those who dont want too much spice in their pumpkin seasonals.

Where some newer pumpkin ale makers are instant on making a beer that tastes identical to pumpkin ale, and then others that want to create a beer first and nuances of pumpkin flesh and spice to accent; the Cisco brewers split the difference in a taste that's just as beery as it is pumpkiny.

Its bright copper hue takes on the tinge of orange pumpkin to sell "taste with your eyes first" very well. Spicy nutmeg and clove leads the way with cinnamon and brown sugar following closely behind. Its sweet malty upstart supports the spices in a sultry and flirty kind of way.

What insures is a light caramel and confection taste that coats the palate and prepares it for the spices that quickly follow- those allspice medleys symphonize over the middle with the same cinnamon, nutmeg and clove character that charmed the nose. Its rich palate is lightly starchy and sweet though a drying and warming finish looms.

Despite its medium-bodied upstart dissolves quite effortlessly in its finish, a spicy, heated and drying tactile sensation follows to offer a moderate sense of drinkability and sociability to the session. Its dry starchiness is laden with skeletons of spice and sweetness that aridly reminds the palate and memory of pumpkin pie.

[Appearance: 4.0] Reminiscent of Autumn, this beer's color is bright golden orange and full of clarity. A foamy, strong off-white head reaches and maintains one finger of height, staying strong and leaving good lace.
[Aroma: 3.75] The nose offers plenty of earth up front, some toast and a certain nuttiness, some fruits and the impression of squash that solidifies with time into more of a pumpkin impression overall, as light spicing eases its way in.
[Flavor: 3.5] On the front it's tart but not sour and with no lingering pucker at all. It's earthy and bitter, surprisingly so given the mildness of the bitter notes in the aroma. There's not as much pumpkin as there is spicing, which itself is well done. It's a touch soapy at times.
[Mouthfeel: 4.0] This beer has a creamy, smooth flow but is strongly crisp at the same time in its medium body. There's a lingering bitterness in the finish.
