2.93/5 rDev -16.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5
Pours a copper orange with a small off white head that dissipated quickly. Lacing is minimal.
Smell is a bit malty with spice and a bit of pumpkin in the background. Taste is somewhat bland, sweeter than most "single" pumpkin ales, but the spices don't come through as much as in the smell, definitely some pumpkin in there. A touch bitter.
Feel is pretty light and crisp.
Drinkable, but not one I'd turn to regularly.

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.
