look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
A - Deep copper body with some hints of an earthy brown. Slighty beige head is thin, yet hangs around fairly well. No lacing.
S - I would have probably guessed this was a Boston Lager if I didn't know what it was. A nice bready malt comes through, but no spices or pumpkin presence that I can decipher. Maybe a little cinnamon if I can really envision it.
T - Pumpkin is coming through a lot more in the taste, but this is a pretty bland beer overall. Some dry spices come through like nutmeg and cinnamon, but again you have to dig deep for them.
M - A little heavy on the carbonation for me.
O - A very approachable beer that sacrifices flavor for broad appeal. About what I expected, I suppose. Regardless, it's something I could drink again but would not seek out.
