A: single finger off white head with little lacing on a burnt orange clear body.

S: mostly caramel malt with mild pumpkin spice aroma.

T: Fairly pumpkin-y, more on the spice and pie side with a decent malt backbone. Sweet but not overly so.

M: medium body and moderate carbonation.

Overall: A very drinkable beer. They tried to keep it sweet without going too overboard on the pumpkin flavor. Not terrible but doesn't compare to southern tier or dogfish head's version.

APPEARANCE: This beer, poured from a tap into a pint glass, produced an off-white fizzy 1" head that dissipated quickly leaving thin head lacing. Carbonation was moderate in a clear deep amber colored body.

AROMA: Moderate wheat malt and pumpkin with a light nutty overlay. No hops, but that's okay.

TASTE: Light pumpkin and moderate wheat malts with some nutty taste and light spice. That's about it. Kind of a disappointment; it's not bad, it's just not good either.

MOUTHFEEL: This beer has a light to medium body with a thin texture, moderate carbonation and thin body lacing that dissipates swiftly. The initial flavor is a moderate sweetness with a lighter sweetness at the finish, that lasted for a short period of time.

DRINKABILITY: The bear is repeatable and easy to drink due to its alcohol level but I'd suggest finding a better exemplar of this style. All in all, it's a pretty pedestrian brew. There's not much pumpkin here and what there is tastes like baby food. It's not really objectionable but it's at the lower end of acceptable.
