A- Pours a medium copper to orange in color. A small, one finger head forms, but isn't around very long before it is all but gone. Body of the beer is almost completely translucent, with no cloudiness.
S- This is where this beer stand out a little form the other pumpkin beers, with a very comple]x scent. Starts off with pumpkin but quickly moves into a blend of pumpkin pie smells to compliment the pumpkin itself. There is a blend of vanilla, nutmeg, and cinnamon that really just screams pumpkin pie to your nose. It's the blend of the nutmeg and sweet vanilla that really steps this one up a notch and makes it smell just like grandma's pie.
T- Not quite as delicious or complex as the scent is, but still a good tasting pumpkin beer. Starts with a touch of hops bitterness then launches right into the pumpkin flavor. Spices kick in after the pumpkin, with a good dose of cinnamon and nutmeg. Spices and pumpkin blend until the end of the drink, when a little hops bitterness kicks in and the drink ends.
M- Rather creamy with a medium level of carbonation on the tongue. Smooth with just a touch of noticeable alcohol warmth. This one will catch up to you, but not so quickly.
Overall, this is right up there with Schlafly Pumpkin as one of the better beers in the style. A good way to bring in the fall, even if it is still August when this hits the shelf.
