look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pour: Clear medium copper color. One finger of ivory colored head that sticks around for a short while and leaves traces of lacing on the glass.

Smell: Caramel, brown sugar bready, a little bit spicy. A light floral hop scent.

Taste: Caramel front end with a hint of pumpkin and brown sugar. Yeasty middle with a light-to-moderate hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Light-to-medium and low carbonation.

Drinkability: This beer is alright, and I can drink it. Nothing special though.

Final Notes: It seems like it's been a bit stronger in years past. It's lost some of its magic for me, that said, it was one of my first beers so for me it's a beer that's close to my heart. I'd drink it if offered.

Serving type: on-tap
