look: 4.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Had this last night to celebrate halloween.

A - I didn't have any glass to pour it in, so this rating of appearance is based on the bottle alone. Very attractive label just all around cool with the jack-o-lanturn and everything. Neat printing as well along with a description of the main ingredients. The label said it uses 28 pumpkins per barrel in the brewing process!

S - I didn't really get a whole lot of smell from this, mainly because I didn't pour, so I didn't get the full aroma. It gets an average score because of that.

T - This is where the beer shines. When it first hits my tongue, I don't get a whole lot, but like a delayed reaction, all the flavors start coming in. A whole load of spices is the most prominent taste noticed. Mostly cinnamon, nutmeg, maybe vanilla, maybe a few others I might be forgetting, I don't know my spices very well. I got a sort of pie crust, almost buttery taste at the end. For some reason I didn't taste a whole lot of pumpkin, its mostly spices, followed by buttery crust, then it finishes off with a slight beery bitterness, I missed the pumpkin, but that's not to say the taste isn't good, I just think they missed the pumpkin taste by making the spices and crust overpower the pumpkin itself.

M - It's real grainy on the tongue, probably a product of the spices, and it complements the pie crust thing they got going on. it's medium bodied, fishes off slightly on the wet side. Pretty good.

O - Pleasant experience. I would buy it again next fall. My only critique is the pumpkin taste got lost in all the other things they got going on, which is really what the beer is suppose to be about, pumpkin ale, other than that, a great beer.
