Appearance - 4/5
A beautiful 2 fingers of beige-colored head when I poured, dissipated to about 1 cm within a minute or so. A very hazy bright orange color. If you look closely, you can see lots of carbonation rising at a fairly quick rate. You can also see a lot of particles in the beer. Overall, a nice look.

Smell - 4.25/5
Hops, nutmeg, brown sugar, pumpkin, cinnamon. The smell is very sweet and delicious. The pumpkin smell is really nice, like a pumpkin pie. Overall this beer smells like an excellent pumpkin pie.

Taste - 3.5/5
Hops, pumpkin, nutmeg, pumpkin pie, brown sugar. I remember liking this beer a lot in the past, but honestly the beer is not really very flavorful. The taste seems kind of watery, and none of the fall flavors are easily detectable. The beer is sweet, easily drinkinable though.

Mouthfeel - 3.5/5
The beer is medium-full in body. The carbonation is moderate. It is fairly creamy. Perhaps a little bit watery, but overall a nice feel in the mouth.

Overall - 4/5
I remember this used to be my go-to fall beer. Now that's it been probably a year since I had it last, and I've gotten more serious about beer, it doesn't taste as good as I remember. Still, if you want a fall beer with very subtle fall flavors, this is a good choice.

Aroma has a spicy overtone, mainly cloves and cinnamon, plus a hint of pumpkin. Pours a dark coppery amber with a decent light tan head that leaves plenty of lacing. Flavor is not strong, but enjoyable, a malty core plus pumpkin and cloves and an earthy underpinning. Edgy texture is about average in the fizz and body departments. If not memorable, a good beer for fall.

Bottle sampled. Slight whiff of nutmeg on the nose. Has a deep dark orange hue that gives credence to the use of real pumpkin here. The spices take a back seat - bitter and sweet pumpkin takes control of the flavor profile. Body is a little watery - maybe to be expected at a lower ABV.

A - Orange tinted brown, mostly opaque, but with some light passing through. White head, short, which fades to a thin film over the top. Lacing is moderate.

S - Spice first, but with subtle squash notes from the pumpkin itself. Caramel and bread elements, as well.

T - Not quite as robust as the nose, with the spice notes of clove and cinnamon fading into squash notes and closing with a slightly sour aspect.

M - Moderate carbonation and a clean close.

O - Nothing wrong here, but also nothing terribly interesting. A well-crafted pumpkin beer that delivers decent spice and a reasonable taste of the pumpkin itself, but not a brew that immediately drives me to seek another.
