People say this is one of the best pumpkin beers. I agree.

Might even take the crown over the dogfishhead.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A - Pours a clear golden orange with a thick two finger head. Dissipates slowly to a nonexistent cap and minimal lacing.

S - Aroma is light, but good. Mostly nutmeg with pumpkin and cinnamon in the background. It smells generally sweet, not a specific caramel or toffee aroma. Much more of a pumpkin bread than pie.

T - Much like the smell it is pumpkin, cinnamon, and sweetness all at once. Nice bitterness in the swallow with the spice continuing in the finish.

M - Light body and medium carbonation.

O - Different than most pumpkin ales in flavor and aroma, this beer will definitely fill future rounds of my fall catalog. Taste is light but good with a nice bitterness to temper the sweetness. My only complaint is that the body could be a little heavier.
