look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

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

Pours a hazy orange/gold with barely any head or lacing.

Actually smells like pumpkin! So rare for a pumpkin beer. A little bit of allspice, cinnamon and nutmeg as well.

Taste follows the nose. Just a subtle amount of spices with some good pumpkin flavor and a slight acidity.

Mouthfeel is fairly light with medium carbonation levels.

Nothing special about this, but very pleasant. I hate when a pumpkin beer is overspiced and this one is definitely subtle which I appreciate.
