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

A- Pours a clearish amber color with a nice 1 1/2 finger creamy head

S- Smells like a pumkin crumble cake. Has nice aromas of spices and sweetness

T- Has a nice pumpkin flavor up front followed by some nutmeg and carmel, finishes with a pumpkin peppery brown sugar flavor.

M- Medium to light bodied with ok carbonation

D-Overall this was a nice pumpkin beer. Had awesome aroma but i couldn't have more than 1 glass of this in a day. It has too much flavor and a little overly sweet. Overall it was still a nice brew

Finally tried this and was impressed!

A: orange, good head, leaves clumps of lace

S: Holy Moly! Clove, nutmeg, spices and sweetness. Smells great.

T: Not as good as the smell but pretty great. Very sweet and spice flavored, not a lot of pumpkin flavor.

M: A little hot, but smooth.

Overall very good!
