Pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove form the aroma. There's substantial brown sugar sweetness. Flavor reveals ginger at the base, which lingers throughout. Caramel malt sweetness and pumpkin form the backbone, with cinnamon and clove accenting the profile. There's a hint of squash tang, along with cola notes, which are offputting. Good amount of sweetness, for my palate.

Poured into a tulip glass.

A: An opaque tawny orange/amber with a tan one-finger head that lingers. Billowy lacing.

S: Strong cinnamon and nutmeg. Pumpkin pie pops in nicely.

T: Starts out slightly sour, then rounds out into a pumpkin pie crust flavor with cloves and nutmeg. Rich, hearty.

M: Light to medium with light carbonation.

O: Not as creamy or carbonated as I hoped it would be. The sour start is a turnoff. Not bad, but I've had much better.

A very "real" pumpkin beer. Would def. try it again.
