This beer came out of a 12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass. It developed some head, but head retention was minimal. The beer is slightly hazy but not totally untypical for a Pumpkin Ale. The color of the ale was a copper to slightly orange like hue. In my opinion, the perfect color for a Pumpkin Ale. The ale has an aroma of Pumpkin Pie spices, most of which is nutmeg but there are hints of cinnamon and clove. I would prefer a bit more aroma by using more spice, but at any rate its very nice. The beer it self has excellent mouthfeel, very light and easy to drink. When drinking this you immediately get the pumpkin pie spice but it disappears too quickly and finishes with a slightly caramel taste. This is a tough beer to brew and there are so few "excellent" pumpkin ales on the market. O'fallon did a good job of carefully balancing hops with the spices. This is one of the best Pumpkin Ales that i have had to date, but I would like to see more of a bold spice taste. This is a safe beer, but O'fallon should be proud of it- It knocks the socks of of AB's mass produced version. I will be buying this again! Prost!

Another beer courtesy of the legendary woodychandler. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a orange/brownish color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of pumpkin, some mild spices. Taste is good, pumpkin, nutmeg, subtle spices, very easy drinking and refreshing. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall this beer was not overspiced as many pumpkin beers are, tasty and enjoyable.

Each time that I think that I have reviewed my last pumpkin beer for the year/season, another one pops up! I really do think that this will be my last until Fall 2014. I purchased it at D's Six Pax & Dogz in Da Burgh during my most recent visit and raise a toast to The CANQuest's (TM) hitting the 1K milestone sometime in 2014. Cheers!
From the CAN: "We Love Beer."
The Crack! was nice and loud and the inverted Glug went beautifully, producing two fingers of dense, light-orangish head that put me in mind of the froth on an Orange Julius. Do they even make those any more? Color was a cloudy orangish-amber (SRM = > 17, < 22). Nose seemed heavily dosed with nutmeg, although I could also smell cinnamon in the mix. The mouthfeel was kind of thin, but I liked that they had not overdone it with the spices so that the malt had a chance to come through. I was reminded of a Christmas cookie, spiced, but with a bready quality, also. Finish was semi-sweet, the result of the admixture of the spices with the malts. It was not the best version of the style that I tried over the course of the season, but neither was it the worst.
