A- Pours golden-orange color with a big creamy two-finger off-white head that retains long after the pour, leaving some lace behind.
S- more of a hoppy nose than a typical pumpkin ale with some herbal and woodsy aromas. Typical pumpkin spices are there with some raw pumpkin and toasted bread malt
T- well balanced pumpkin flavors of nutmeg and cinnamon, bready malt balances with a subtle pumpkin flavor, herbal and grassy hops close it out
M- Medium body with moderate carbonation leads to a smooth mouthfeel and a silky dry finish
O- a different take on the typical pumpkin ale, the increased hop bitterness played well with the pumpkin spices

Draught: This one pours an orangish-gold color. It has a bit of a white head on it. Not much lacing. The aroma is OK. Some pumpkin spices, hint of malt. Not much else. The taste is very similar. Some pumpkin spices, a bit of malts. Rates a "Meh" at best.
Serving type: on-tap

2.2/5 rDev -36.8%
look: 4 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.25
Aroma: Nutmeg and ginger are present along with an earthy almost rotting bark-like aroma. Some maltiness present, but not a lot. No hop aroma. Slight fruity esters as it warms. Overall mild aroma for a spiced beer.
Appearance: Gold to light orange in color. Has a fine but large white head. Very good clarity.
Flavor: Initial malt flavor but lacking in sweetness. Quickly turns to a bitter harshness. Has a very thin body and ends with an astringent and metallic finish. Not much spice is tasted beyond those off-putting flavors.
Overall: This beer is not good. To be honest it has the harsh and metallic flavors that I associate with old-style homebrew (before we really understood the need for fresh ingredients and sanitation...) Sj and I had to pour this out after a couple sips. Not a great start from this brewery, but I'd still try another of their beers before boycotting them.
