look: 5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance - dark orange amber pour, a good finger's worth of manila foam sitting on top. Decent resilience, nice bead from below, good lacing. Excellent start.

Aroma - light pumpkiny, slightly vegetal but in a good way. A whiff of metal on setup, but pumpkiny metal...strange. Overall I like it, though.

Taste - malts and pumpkin and pumpkin spices hit in tandem. Fine unison, these flavors. On the swallow there is a light astringency cutting through the sweet, the malt, and the spice. Aftertaste has a touch of abv and the finish reprises the flavors nicely. Impressive flavor for a beer under 7%. Most pumpkin beers only get this big when the abv ramps up some.

Mouthfeel - very smooth, a bit too heavy, my only knock on this beer. As my first glass warmed, the last sip reminded me of drinking raw eggs (I only did that once or twice long ago). The second glass is colder and doesn't feel as heavy.

Drinkability - deserves its own six-pack release, the heck with the harvest pack two bottle thing.
