look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Pours a golden orange. Somewhat cloudy but I was still able to see visible carbonation bubbles rise to the top. A very decent head but it quickly fades. Little lacing is evident.
Smells like pumpkin pie. Nutmeg, cinnamon and mace are all there. Smells light (if that's possible!)
Totally not what I expected at all. Definitely not a sweet pumpkin beer. Very hard tasting though it is very well balanced. strong presence of pumpkin and mace as discussed earlier.
Well bodied and there is a tiny hoppy aftertaste.
With pumpkin beers you usually expect it to be sweet but this one sure surprised me with the kick in the butt that it gave me. I will be drinking this again next year.

3.7/5 rDev +5.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Presentation: Very nice label with awesome artwork/graphics while keeping a classic classy look with a nice fall color scheme. Front label gives a small description of the beer. Back label gives ABV info and a small description of the beer. Neck label has Ichabod logo.
Appearance: An aggressive pour from its 12oz brown bottle into a 20oz imperial pint led to a 2 finger off white head of a medium somewhat thick density atop a hazy copper apple cider looking beer. Head retention was a solid 3min 14sec before fading to a thick ring and frothy coating with excellent lacing.
Smell/Aroma: Smell is of cinnamon, nutmeg, clove with a bit of toasty caramel and heavy fresh pumpkin.
Flavor/Taste: Taste is of nutmeg and pumpkin with a nice bit of toasted caramel malt on the front end with a mid point of clove, cinnamon, and pumpkin. Back end has a nice toasty malt finish with pumpkin and cinnamon dominating and a toasty aftertaste.
MouthFeel/Drinkability: Medium bodied with a slightly creamy mouthfeel and above average carbonation. Very very drinkable.
Overall/Comments: An overall very solid Pumpkin Ale that, while not great, is good across the board. This is one of the more drinkable pumpkin ales that I have had. Classified as a Pumpkin Ale @ 5.5% ABV. Consumed 12/7/2013.
