Looks pretty nice. Quite clear somewhat deep coloured amber ale. Nice two finger offwhite head, decent retention despite mild carbonation. Head settles to leave a decent collar.
Aroma is quite subdued. Mostly slightly sour apple, some pumpkin spice, and pumpkin with a clean maltiness. Smells good, just wish there was some more emphasis on pumpkin.
Fairly mild in flavour, much like the nose. The flavours are good, and the pumpkin spice makes its presence known, mostly ginger and some nutmeg and allspice, in a nicely balanced manner.
Somewhat light and watery. Nothing special.
Thanks to the balance and light body this is pretty drinkable. Id certainly recommend it to fans of the style, although this isnt one of my favorites, with its slight emphasis on clean malts over pumpkin.

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.
