Pours a small offwhite head with a yellow/orange body. Aroma of spicy bread with candied sweetness. Flavor was a little too overpowering for me; reminded me a lot of candy corn type taste. A fun beer to try but the flavors were too much for me; recommend trying this with a group or in small doses.

A - Pours a cloudy burnt orange with a two finger head that dissipates. Very sparse lacing. Looks very autumn like. You can see a little alcohol clinging to the glass.

A - Smells like graham cracker crust. Extremely unique aroma. No other pumpkin beer that I've had smells like this one. Very subtle pumpkin pie spice aromas.

T - Sweet pumpkin pie crust flavor. No bitterness whatsoever. Alcohol is hidden very well but it does start to warm as it goes down. Very unique pumpkin beer.

M - Medium in body. Flavor duration is moderate to long.

O - Not your standard pumpkin beer. I buy this one every year and always enjoy it.
