Poured from bottle into tasting glass.

App- Pours a coppery gold color (perhaps a pumpkin color...) with minimal head. The head goes away quickly and there is no lacing. The beer is quite fizzy.

Smell- I get the sweet smell of pumpkin pie as well as a bit of an alcohol smell. Pie spices are there as well, particularly nutmeg.

Taste- The flavor profile mimics that of the smell. A strong pumpkin taste is accompanied by holiday spices. There is a lack of bitterness, but there is some tang on the end of the taste coming perhaps from the spices, or some acidity.

Mouthfeel- very light in the mouth, the beer seems to move over the tongue with ease, the bubbles cause it to feel lighter than it is

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.
