First pumpkin beer of the season and it has that traditional pumpkin pie smell and flavor. A little bit of actual squash flavor is there, because, well...they actually put some pumpkin in the beer. Not overly spiced like some pumpkin beers that I've tried in the past. I could say it's too vegetal tasting, but it's pumpkin beer and authentic pumpkin beer made with real pumpkins is going to have that flavor. I'm not a big fan of the style, but it seems like sacrilege not to have at least one pumpkin beer when in the fall.

Poured from bottle into pint glass at home.
A: A rich brown-red color. There's a thin, cream-colored head of about half an inch dissipates quickly. Leaves a good amount of lacing on the sides of the glass.
S: Sweet pumpkin pie!
T: Pumpkin pie and the associated spices- cinnamon, nutmeg, etc. Spices come through mainly on the finish along with slight alcohol.
M: Hearty and full. Medium-low carbonation.
O: What a delicious, satisfying and robust brew! I enjoyed every sip!

Moderate to dark amber color with mild head and mild carbonation. Heavy ginger and pumpkin pie smell right out of that oven. This is beer? Can't tell from the smell. Tastes a bit like ginger beer infused with pumpkin. Heavy ginger, cinnamon flavor. Great pumpkin flavor and spice complexity in addition to a great beer element as well. Great pumpkin beer.
