Clear, vibrant orange body topped with a thin, white head that vanishes quicker than kids at bedtime. Plenty of fizzy action though.
Clean is the name of the game. Everything here is well executed, light, and clean. Cloves and nutmeg dominate the aromascape with faint traces ofpumpkin and pecan. Summed up, they trapped the lovely smell of a fresh pumpkin pie in bottle.
Follows the aroma nicely.. this is pumpkin pie in a bottle! All the hallmarks of a classic Thanksgiving favorite are here: pumpkin - check, nutmeg - check, cinnamon- check, allspice - check. Light bitterness from beginning to end. Satisfying finish and aftertaste - you'll swear you just wrapped up Thanksgiving dinner!
Medium body and smooth. Plenty of carbonation. No real noticable alcohol. Easy to drink with a semi-sweet finish.
I love this time of year... the colors, the weather (usually), and the pumpkin beer! While this isn't my favorite, it's a close second behind Southern Tier's Pumpking. For me though, this one has a one-up on Pumpking - it's availability. Easy to obtain, easy to session, and easy to love.

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.
