Pretty exceptional, remains my favorite pumpkin beer to date (I've tried oh-so-many, none pass muster). Would love to include a more fleshed-out review, but it's been so long that I've had this beer. I now live 2,000 miles away from the east coast and have been missing it, every season.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Bright copper colored, with a very light head that dies back quickly leaving a light ring and little chunks of foam that slowly slide back down the glass. Smell is pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg. Taste is pumpkin, nutmeg and a little biscuity malt in the background. The feel is light with lots of carbonation with a medium-dry finish and a lingering bitterness and trace of spices. Overall this is excellent, with a nice warming alcohol finish that isn't too boozy and a nice pumpkin taste that isn't overdone.
