A good choice for pumpkin ales; and be my go to for a crowd favorite. Taste and easiness to drink is there. A great beer.

Appearance: deep amber in color, dense

Overall: tastes like pumpkin, dark malt, cinnamon and brown sugar is also prominent. Good beer has a great autumn feel to it. Perfect for the fall season.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

A- Deep copper, nearly light brown when it pours. 1 finger khaki colored head with weak retention and very little lacing. Looks beautiful.

S- Typical pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices. Subtle hints of toasted pie crust adds to the perception that you are drinking a liquid pumpkin pie.

T- A little sweet nuttiness. Not overly complex (for the style anyway). Slight hints of pumpkin bread with butter. Mostly pumpkin pie spices.

M- A little too thin for me. The head dropped quickly, and I would have preferred a more full-bodied mouthfeel to support the richness of the flavors.

O- While I’m on “richness of the flavors” I do wish they had been just a bit richer. Everything was decent and well balanced, but it all just had the volume turned down a little more than I would have liked.
