served on draught at Old Chicago in Okemos, MI.

Mostly clear coppery amber in color with just a hint of haziness. Thin very white head dissipated very quickly to a thin white ring that stuck around through to the end. Light partial lacing.

A sort of malty pumpkin pie spice smell. Compared to other good pumpkin spiced brews out right now, this one seems a bit weak, but still a bit better than your average brew.

Nice solid amber ale, a bit on the dry side, good balance, and only a hint of pumpkin. Perhaps it's just me, but I would normally expect more pumpkin in a pumpkin beer. The finish is mostly clean and short and there is a bit of pumpkin spice in the finish.

Weight in the mouth is quite average - not bad, but not particularly good either. Carbonation is reasonable, but again, just middle of the road and nothing to write home about.

As for drinkability, one of these was plenty and I was ready to look for something different, even if it was a different pumpkin beer. It sounds like I'm really cracking on this beer and I don't mean to, but it is very average and, well, kinda boring.

Serving type: on-tap
