Pours a super clean, clear orange color with an orange head that is thick, dense, and fluffy. Immediately, the presence of cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and "pumpkin" hits your nose. The flavor mimics the aroma profile...liquid pumpkin pie...absolutely awesome. The flavor helps to solidify what you are trying to detect in the nose. It has a medium body, and a finish that lasts for a long time even after you swallow. Also, the 9% ABV is a nice treat...I guess you would say it's the whipped cream of this serving.

In typical Southern Tier fashion, this beer offered me more direct pumpkin pie flavor than any other Pumpkin Ale I have tried.

Serving type: on-tap
