3.65/5  rDev +3.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: A darker pumpkin ale, with a tiny bit of head on the pour and a little bit of residual head left over. Very bubbly remaining after the pour. Not as amber as most pumpkin ales but still within the characteristics of traditional pumpkin ales.

Smell: This has a much sweeter smell, and there is definitely some pumpkin obvious within the smell. A lot of flavor is noted when smelling the beer. I'm looking forward to tasting this.

Taste: A very medium taste. I think it benefits the actual taste. There is not so much spice upon tasting the beer just more pumpkin, which is a great mix up compared to the rest of the pumpkin beers. If this had perhaps been a bit sweeter it would have been outstanding taste, but none the less i really enjoy this happy medium.

Mouthfeel: This beer has a medium carbonation, and is medium thickness beer. I think this properly suits the actual taste of the beer and makes it a good beer. I can't really complain about the mouth taste of this beer other than i like it.

Overall: This is a pretty good pumpkin ale. I really enjoy the smell, and the taste actually pairs nicely with the smell and mouthfeel brings it all together. They did a good job, i feel like this captures the essence of a Pumpkin ale.

3.7/5  rDev +5.1%
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.
