12oz bottle served in a standard pint glass.
A - This beer pours a light bronze color that darkens towns the center. It produces a very thin white head that dissolves quickly but sticks a little bit to glass on the way down.
S - The beer smelled naturally of pumpkin and cinnamon like spices. Also there were hints of nutmeg apparent and pourporie like cloves with a mild hop presence.
T - The beer tasted of roasted pumpkins probably due to the subtle hints of roasted malts. There was an abundance of spices such as nutmeg and cinnamon and again even cloves. The beer did however feel a little bit watered down and lacked a strong dominating flavor. Most flavors were very mild and nothing really dominated the flavor.
M - A very light beer that again felt a little watered down with a lack of malt character in comparison to similar beers.
D - The only constructive critism I can offer is again this beer lacked a dominating flavor to it. It lacked the characteristics that are essential to pumpkin beers. It felt watered down and lacked a strong malt character. The flavors that were present were very subtle and lacked uniqiness. This was a very drinkable beer it simply did not stick out at all amongst the other pumpkin beers available.
