Poured into a mason jar: color is pumpkin orange/copper, head is bright white and presents about 1 inch thick then dissipates to a top and ring on the glass.

Smell is pumpkin spice mix, then malt and wheat and biscuit, then some fruitier notes.

Taste is great blend of spice, pumpkin and malt: pumpkin ales at this strength tend to allow more pumpkin flavor to come through, the subtle fruity flavor reminds me of the flavors that came through in my homebrewed pumpkin ales when leaning towards a thinner malt bill (less caramel). The spice mix is very pleasant, good balance and not overpowering. Some subtle malt flavor comes through as biscuit, wheat.

Mouthfeel is very nice on first quaff, crisp and full bodied with good presence on the tongue; then it does dry the tongue out quite well.

Overall a good pumpkin ale, not over sweet and even subtle enough to provide some thin pumpkin taste with a subtle, balanced spice profile

Pours a clear orange-gold with minimal head. Essentially no aroma. Taste is exceptionally smooth with minimal sweetness and spice. While this does gives room for the pumpkin to shine, overall this is a rather weak pumpkin ale. The good news is that there is no bitterness in the finish. Overall an exceptionally smooth, highly sessionable pumpkin that is well balanced and easy drinking. The low ABV makes this brew one I would definitely like to pick up again.
