Copper pour, two fingers of khaki head dissipates quickly, minimal lacing in the tulip.

Aroma is classic pumpkin spices, seems well balanced.

Despite the reputation for being one of the hoppier Pumpkin Ales (one reviewer noted Nelson Sauvin hops were advertised: I've seen no such evidence of this claim on the Cisco website), it was not apparent to me. Not as sweet as some of the other offerings I've tried, there is a pleasant balance from sip to swallow that is satisfying.

Medium body, lower level of carbonation, non syrupy in the finish.

Noticing the Julian dating after purchase, I realized Pumple Drumkin was canned mid July, 3+ months before consumption. I'm wondering if there is a hop presence that may have been more noticeable closer to the canning date. Next season I'll seek this one out closer to the canning date to see if the hops are more of a factor. Easy drinking Pumpkin Ale, worth a shot.

Pours a clear dark orange with a foamy tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, caramel, citrus zest, earth, and slight pumpkin pie spice aromas. Taste is much the same with malt, earth, pumpkin, and pumpkin pie spice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice and earth bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with an aroma of something like an amber ale, but the taste of a pumpkin ale.

Serving type: bottle.

Cannot explain it but this one really didn't settle with me at all.
Poured a brownish orange hue with two finger head.
Aroma was minimal pumpkin spice and sweetness with some graininess.
Light, almost watery, to me the beer tasted like your average pale ale with grainy hops and minimal sweetness but then had some pumpkin notes added it (and the pumpkin is minimal at best).
