A: hazy amber, translucent; beige head dissipating to surface film; jags of lacing
S: fresh pumpkin pie, slightly buttery sweet
T: clear nutmeg, bubble gum, alcohol, a hint of maple
M: full-bodied, cream, on the cloying side
O: Much better initial taste than aftertaste, but unfortunately that's what you're stuck with. Weird spiced bubblegum,

Tried this in Kutztown near the brewery and then again at the brewery. My wife loves this brew (her rating would be higher!) and so do many folks around Kutztown. It is an exceptional pumpkin fall type brew and we now have a case in the basement (in bottles).
It is always great to buy local, but if you can find this beer, I recommend it.

Hazy amber-brown with some floaters. A fine white head that dissipates in relative haste.
It smells of rich brown sugar with a hint of the promised butternut squash and a bit of maple and spice. Real maple, not 'breakfast syrup', so it's restrained as to not be too intense.
Tastes like rich maple, butternut squash, and some pie-spice/pumpkin. Funny that they get the 'pumpkin
vibe with a different gourd, but whatever works. Definitely on the sweet side, but spicy enough not to be syrupy. This flavor portends its higher ABV, but makes it dangerously drinkable.
Thick (and there's some serious sediment, so not for the faint of heart) feeling and rich, appropriate for this style as far as I'm concerned. You'll want a glass of water though, as it lingers a bit and can be overwhelming especially if you are thirsty or dehydrated to begin with, as I am.
I bought this on a whim for novelty value because it wasn't too expensive. I found it so good that it's one of the few pumpkin beers I liked so much, I'd buy again (not that I dislike pumpkin beers, but I've had so many that they hardly ever stand out).

A- Pours a bright and copper clear color with a small creamy white head that retains after the pour, leaving some short-lasting lace behind
S- vegetal aromas of yam, squash and pumpkin. Lots of cinnamon and nutmeg, sweet maple syrup, buttery pie crust malt. Aroma reminds me of The Bruery Autumn Maple
T- Cinnamon flavor is the first thing to jump out, like cinnamon toast. A maple sweetness kicks in mid-palate with vegetal squash flavors. Pie-crust-like malt on the finish with more maple on the linger
M- medium body and carbonation lead to a chewy mouthfeel and a foamy finish. Light alcohol warmth, but pretty well hidden given the ABV.
O- An interesting take that plays well with the maple and spices. The pie crus flavor of the malt was an inspired touch as well
