look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2.5

Pours an almost ruby brown with kakhi-ish head. Borderline hazy. Little retention. Mildly carbonated. Some lace here and there

Smells like the typical pumpkin spices - cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice. Funky bready yeast

Tastes like drying spices. Chalky. Yeasty. There's some sweetness from the pumpkin but its more earthy vegetal than I would have expected. The spices aren't really pronounced enough...more or less just a hodge podge of powdery, almost medicinal tasting dryness

Feels chalky and dry. Bite of carbonation and spice. Medium bodied but very coating

Overall not like I remembered this from last year. Not well-balanced. The flavors don't mesh well together. No sweetness. A real letdown

Served in a tumbler.

I don't even know how to respond to the story on the side of the can... Regardless, this stuff pours a clear auburn topped by a finger of cream foam. The nose comprises caramel, light graham cracker, brown sugar, clove, a pinch of cinnamon, and toast. The taste brings in more of the same, with a stronger toast component, this time almost seeming like toasted pumpkin seeds. For once, the spicing in a pumpkin ale is present but restrained, a welcome change, even for a sweet-toothed spice-hound like myself. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation, a slick feel, and a sorta/kinda drying finish. Overall, a solid enough pumpkin ale, one that tones down the spices compared to others while maintaining a healthy balance with the underlying malts.
