Review based on notes
Pours an effervescent bronze with 2 fingers of cream colored head. Very good head retention & good lacing
S: Pumpkin, nutmeg, & cinnamon in good quantity
T: Pumpkin, breadyness & nutmeg up front. Pumpkin flavor stays strong as this warms along with slight grainyness. Finishes dry with pie spices, pumpkin muffin & a touch of herbal hops
MF: Medium bodied, fairly assertive carbonation; smooths out & become richer as this warms
Drinks really easy, one of the better pumpkin ales out there

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.
