Pours a two finger cream head that fades quickly leaving some lace. Clear amber color. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied. Spicy pumpkin nose and flavor has only hints of pumpkin with more pepper and hops. $2.70 for a 12oz bottle from Julio's Liquors Marlboro, MA.

A: Clear orange-pink with a good amount of bubbles. Foamy off-white head is tenacious.

S: Mostly hops, surprisingly, but even those are somewhat faint. Clean, but not what I was hoping for.

T: Disappointingly, mostly malt, with citrusy hops being a close second. Pumpkin and spice flavors take a far back seat. Finish is quick.

M: Crisp and bitter from the hops, would be good if this wasn't supposed to be a pumpkin beer.

O: Not a bad beer, but not a good representative of the already under-siege pumpkin style. Don't know what happened with this beer, but you can do better.

I picked this up at Monde, enjoyed chilled from the 12oz bottle in a can-shaped glass.

The color is deep amber bordering on copper with light haze. The ale has a thin cream cap with fine bead, the lace sticks and retention is very good. The smell is very fragrant with spice aroma that brings to mind some ginger and nutmeg with a mild vegetal nose with some caramel malt scents. The feel is good with medium body with moderate carbonation and a very good spice level, not enough to overwhelm the malt yet enough sweetness to make it seem balanced with a semi dry finish and low alcohol influence.

The flavor is good actually it impresses me with more flavor than the aroma lets on with some gentle woodiness of ginger with a light nutmeg like aspect and perhaps some clove adding to the taste of slight fruitiness from the yeast. The malt takes a back seat but still supports the rest of the flavor profile adding some sweetness to the spice and yeast which is pretty seamless. Overall I recommend this to fans of the style since I enjoyed how balanced it was, I like the fact that you get the spice without it overwhelming the taste...it compliments in every way.

Loving the canned beer revolution, this one pours a copper bronze hue bright filtered large khaki tan head, forms thick and textured foam. Fine speckled lacing left behind is layered nicely in even patterns. Aroma is packed with pumpkin pie spices including nutmeg, cinnamon, all spice, and hints of clove. Gourdy goodness with some actual vegetal pumpkin aromatics here. Refreshing quaffable pumpkin ale, not overly spiced but there's a great base beer underneath the pumpkin pie spice. It finishes rather clean the spices don't linger, thank God. Solid effort outta Nantucket, such solid beer made in a can I'm ready for more of this caliber of brewing offered in cans.

12 ounce can.

The pour is hazy lighter amber with a dull orange hue. Ample darker eggshell head, stays pretty well, then slowly starts to go to a thicker low film and leaves some decent looking slippery low bands of lacing.

The expected pumpkin pie spiced nose.

Spiced ale, with cinnamon, cloves, vanilla, lite pumpkin and some equally light pepper comes to mind.

Easy drinking fall beer. Decent sessioner. Bonus points for being put in a can. Good one for the cooler at a fall game/event/outing/picnic.
