12 oz bottle best before Feb '13. Poured into a hoffman house chalice.

A - Pour straight down the middle generates a large, reddish tan tightly packed head. Color is deep red to brown, very clear. Medium to low carbonation on inspection.

S - Sweet cinnamon with a deep fruitiness, almost cherry-like. Aroma not as powerful as some of the heavier pumpkin beers, but still present.

T - Creamy caramel with a subtle cracker note fades into a very mild brown sugar and allspice flavor. No hops obvious. Finish is modestly sweet. Some pumpkin-like flavors noticed in the finish (like summer squash).

M - Medium to heavy body with mild carbonation. Excellent mouthfeel.

O - An easy drinking, modest but tasty example of the pumpkin ale style. Not as spiced and aggressive as many of the most popular examples, but a clean brew that is easy to drink. Note that this was consumed at cellar temperature, which greatly increased the mouthfeel and enjoyability of this beer.
