Best by Jan 29th 06, this bottle should be pretty fresh.

Pours nicely into the pint glass, perfect size head but the bubbles are a little lumpy. Orange color is nice but hints of yellow detract. Nice head retention, although at the end the head formed into chunks on the top... I don't think it's mold, but that's very weird.

Smells of cloves, spices (in a somewhat belgian way) and pumpkin, along with sweet malts. I wonder if they used the same yeast as in normal BM. This smells delicious, close to pumpkin pie.

Some good, some bad on the taste. Cloves and some pumpkin flavor dominate, which is how the pumpkin ale should be. I'm not sure this is a pumpkin "ale," more like a pumpkin amber lager. Too heavy on the spice and the sweetness but I'm glad they aren't afraid to go all out. Very little bit of hops on the finish; this tastes almost like an all-malt lager. A little bit of artificial chemical taste brings it down.

Mouthfeel is watery and overcarbonated, yucky finish.

I couldn't drink many more of these. Because it's pretty over the top, the sweetness and spicing gets a little sickening by the end. Nice as a single, though, to get you in the halloween mood.
