Pours a clear dark reddish-orange with a foamy tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, bread, caramel, and pumpkin pie aromas. Taste is much the same with raisin bread, earth, and pumpkin pie spice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with actual pumpkin pie aromas, but I am only getting pumpkin pie spice qualities from the taste.

Serving type: bottle.

Pours translucent cola brown. The 1/2 inch khaki head fades to a cap on top and leaves spotty lace.

The smell is of cinnamon, nutmeg, roasted malt and maple syrup.

The taste is of Autumn spices (cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice), pumpkin and brown sugar.

The texture is approaching heavy bodied with medium carbonation.

A decent pumpkin ale. Slightly over spiced in my opinion. Pleasant brown sugar sweetness and a nice thick mouthfeel.
