4/5  rDev +14.9%

Appearance: Clear deep amber in color with a large, dense off-white head, which persists quite well. Thin Belgian-type lacing coats the glass walls. The carbonation is slight and slow-rising. (3.75/5.0)

Aroma: Pumpkin pie spices dominates the aroma, with cloves and cinnamon particularly notable. Pumpkin is also prominent, as well as dark malt and a mild grassy hop presence. (4.0/5.0)

Taste: Opens with prominent pumpkin, dark malt, and pumpkin pie spices. As the taste progresses, the pumpkin pie spices really shine, with cinnamon being particularly notable. Brown sugar is also prominent. Throughout the taste, there is an undercurrent of pumpkin. Finishes with lingering pumpkin, pumpkin pie spices, and mild herbal hops. (4.0/5.0)

Mouth feel: Smooth soft and pleasant, with zesty carbonation, (3.75/4.0)

Drinkability/notes: Very nice, one of the nicer pumpkin seasonals, well worth a try. It seems a fitting companion to the Autumn Equinox tonight. (4.0/5.0)

Presentation: Packagedin a twelve-ounce brown glass long-neck bottle, served in a Samuel Adams Boston Lager sensory glass.
