Color is a darker yellow/burnt orange and white head. Taste is fantastic. I think the "pumpkin pie batter in bottle is a bit over done, but its one of the better tasting pumpkin beers I've had. You get something more then you do with most of the pumpkin beers. Its just not the clove/cinnamon/pumpkin pie spices flavors. There is a sweetness in addition to those flavors that make you actually think of pumpkin pie. The only weakness of the beer in the smell. Its not BMC bland, but there isn't much there on the nose.

Overall, I think the beer lives up to the hype and is worth buying once or twice a year, even though it is a bit expensive.

This beer is something to write home about. Im not a beer expert. I just have a good palate. I know that everyone who tastes it loves it. I like the finish when the oxygen hits your mouth after you swallow. The beer is only sold in large bottles, i think that is to make sure you pour in a bottle, however, it could also be to make sure you have a good time.

Great tasting beer with a ABV of 8.6 % you can't go wrong. My favorite Pumpkin Ale so far. No need for that caramel sugar rim to enhance flavor not overly sweet just enough spice. This is the seasonal beer you want to be drinking. You can find it on tap at the Village Traven in Salem, MA
