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,

I just bought a 4 pack at Wegmans. I normally buy a small amount before investing in a case.
I bought a case of Smutteynose pumpkin ale on a recommendation last year. What a mistake.
That stuff tastes like potpourri. One person in 10 liked it (not me). Gave the remainder to him. Maple Mistress came highly recommended too, but not my favorite. I love pumpkin ales and have tried many. This stuff tastes like maple ale. Not bad, but not good either. Any pumpkin Flavor is not apparent to my taste buds. It is very strong though. if you like maple
and want to get drunk quick, then this is your beer.
If you are a fan of pumpkin ales, my favorite is Weyerbacher Imperial~ almost as strong too with a scotch aftertaste. Next step down is Long Post. In the lighter pumpkin ales I like Pumpkin (Uinta), Long Trail, Saranac, & Buffalo Bill. Woodchuck Pumpkin is interesting if
you like hard cider and a mild pumpkin flavor ~ subtle and smooth.
Other pumpkin ales that I do not like include Samuel Adams and Blue Moon.
Other pumpkin ales I have tried and liked (but did not purchase in quantity) include UFO, Tommyknocker, Ichabod, and Southampton.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker pint.
Amber with 1 finger of head. Okay retention and clarity. Heavy carbonation.
Pie crust, maple syrup and apple cider.
Toasted pie crust, sweet maple syrup and molasses. Lighter notes of butternut squash, pumpkin meat, caramelized brown sugar, nutmeg and cinnamon.
Medium bodied, drying and heavily carbonated.
Hides the alcohol well. It's okay.
