pours the mest beautiful red/orange sunset haze uve ever seen. fluffy tan head and a big autumn aromatic palate. i smell pumpkin pie filling, clove, and cinnamon, maybe even cardomom, flavor is a bit too spiced for a pumpkin ale in my opinion, but has a nice seasonal respectability. the mouthfeel is medium, but it feels weird in the stomach, maybe a combination of the big malts and spice, but i wouldnt drink a six pack of this. solid beer again from sam, but dont creaming myself over it. if it tasted as good as it looked in the glass, thatd be another story...

The beer poured with a slightly amber color head compared with its tan-amber body. Head dissipated quickly and very little lacing on the sides. The aromas include a very slight roasted nuts or a burnt sugar smell with a dominant flavoring of cinnamon and pumpkin flavors. The taste comes with a bittersweet aftertaste, but there is a decent light pumpkin with vanilla-malt flavor. I did like the mouthfeel; it had a good balance between a smooth and carbonation. Overall, not too bad of a pumpkin ale.
