Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a tulip glass for maximum pretentiousness.
Appearance: Beer pours a golden copper color (or alternatively, a dark amber color) with a vague haziness. Head is thin and wispy, and pure white. Much like pumpkin pie.
Smell: Right out of the bottle (out of the fridge) it's not very appetizing...but after a few moments of warming up, the pumpkin flavor blasts through accompanied by the perennial cinnamon and nutmeg additions that are a part of pumpkin pie. As a pumpkin ale, it smells perfect.
Taste/Mouthfeel: Slightly buttery going in, it begins fizzing on the tongue. With the fizziness comes a great deal of pumpkin flavor, with an even amount of buttery sweetness and herbal spice. Aftertaste is beautiful, all that's missing is the crust and whipped cream.
Overall: A great dessert beer and a great fall beer. I am definitely picking up a six-pack of this when the harvest moon rolls through. VERY tasty, and well done.

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.
