The can gets points for the adorable little pumpkin man who adorns its front. It loses points for the really awful attempt at a Halloween poem on the side. I get that it's trying to be cutesy doggerel, but good god--you could have crowdsourced this out to a kindergarten class and gotten something ten times more appealing.

Moving on... this is an east coast pumpkin. Meaning, unlike the midwest variety of pumpkin ale, this is supposed to taste like beer, not pie spice and diabetes.

Starts out with light spice and good kick of fleshy pumpkin. This moves into a middle that's like an east coast pale, with a bit of cinnamon and some uncomfortable barely bitterness in the back.

Not... not bad. But a strange flavor, the beginning dully sweet and the end sharply bitter. Just doesn't hit my pallet quite right.

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.

[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.
