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.

Poured from the bomber into a Sam Adams laser-etched glass.
Review from notes: January 18th, 2014.
A: Copper with thin white head. Good retention, some bubbles.
S: Pumpkin. Nutmeg and clove.
T: Sweet pumpkin, minimal spices. Very drinkable.
M: Nice carbonation, thin mouthfeel.
O: Good. I wasn't excited about this beer (it was in a fall sampler), but it wound up being a nice surprise. The best description for this beer is its name, "pumpkin ale". It tastes like an ale injected with pumpkin juice.
