look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5
Appearance - Pours a cloudy, burnt orange with an off-white, finger width head> Poor retention. The resulting lace is thin, spotty and with little stick.
Smell - Aroma is of pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg spice.
Taste - Faint notes of pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg, and it only gets weaker as it approaches the finish. Watery. Nothing else, except an odd, faint, lingering bitterness.
Mouthfeel - Light, watery body. Very little carbonation. Blah.
Overall - Pumpkin ales don't get much worse than this, and it's a shame. The pumpkin to spice ratio felt right, but the watered down body tarnished anything that might have been.
Serving type: bottle
