12oz brown bottle with a freshness date.
Heady beginning, amber hued brown color is near crystal clear. Hint of pumpkin meat though the spicing rides higher along with some maltiness in the nose. Very smooth with a feigned fullish body. Spice comes at the palate in an aggressive manner, maltiness struggles to poke through and some alcoholic esters and caramel finally make it through in the spicy-sweet finish.
Way too much spice for my liking, these holiday spiced beers need to be subtle especially if you want any trace pumpkin to come through. Not bad but one bottle is more than enough.
