Poured this one into a generic 12oz tasting glass (probably a pilsner of some sort). The brew makes a two finger thick light tan head, and the body is cleanly filtered and is copper in color.

The aroma is pumpkin, vanilla, and maybe a slight hint of cinnamon.

In the taste I'm getting the the spices traditionally found in pumpkin pies, but with an earthy tone.

Full in body, a little slick, and warming in the end.

22 oz bottle. Pours ruby amber with a medium creamy off white head that goes to a thin film and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is sweet, slightly vegetal, malts with a lot of spicy cinnamon and some ginger.

The flavor is sweet caramel malts with some roast and a little dark fruit. It's followed by a ton of heavy spice - mostly cinnamon with some ginger. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a decent pumpkin beer. It's overly spiced with too much cinnamon. But the base is kind of a winter warmer old ale with some light roast and dark fruit that is kind of cool and plays well with the pumpkin.

On-tap at the Indianapolis Colts Grille in downtown Indy.

A: Dark amber with a reddish hue, and a solid 3-finger head that leaves behind some great lace.

S: Sweet-malt in the foreground, followed by some apparent ginger and vanilla.

T: this is a total malt-bomb. The taste is overly sweet, with no detectable hop-bitterness. The alcohol is very evident, almost too evident.

M: Very syrupy mouthfeel, with a little too much carbonation. The body is appropriate for the for the amount of alcohol in the beer

O: No balance in this. Way too sweet, and the alcohol is way too discernable
