22oz bottle poured into a Pint glass.

A - Pours a slightly hazy orange with a near-white head. Good retention and fizzy.

S - Gingerbread, and spices.

T - Strong vanilla, ginger bread, pumpkin, spice.

D - Tons of carbonation, average body.

O - Good pumpkin pie, sweet. I loved the first half, but hard to finish the entire bottle.

Hazy orange-amber in color, with average carbonation and not much lace.

Nose is superb -- very much pumpkin pie. Delicious mix of pumpkin, allspice, and nutmeg. They've certainly mastered the aroma, and if you like pumpkin pie, this will appeal, without a doubt.

Taste is more of the same -- pumpkin pie up front, chased by a strong, dry, and pungent spice finish that obscures the relatively high 8.6% ABV. Delicious and a new pumpkin ale favorite!
