12 ounce bottle into pint glass, fall 2014 bottling. Pours lightly hazy bright orange color with a 1 finger fairly dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of caramel, toast, brown sugar, brown bread, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with god balance and solid complexity of dark/bready malt and spice notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, toast, brown sugar, brown bread, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Light earthy spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, brown sugar, brown bread, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and herbal/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness and solid complexity of dark/bready malt and spice flavors; with a good malt/spice balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and lightly bready mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very solid spiced ale. Good balance and solid complexity of dark/bready malt and spice flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A bit one dimensional, but nicely enjoyable otherwise.

A- Pours a hazy burnt orange, similar in shade to a pumpkin. Small white head that dissipates quickly.

S- It's all spices of nutmeg, cinnamon, and allspice. Some sweetness.

T- Kinda thin, no real pumpkin presence, pretty much all spices.

M- Thinner than how I prefer pumpkin beers.

O- Probably one of the worst pumpkin beers I've had. No real balance in the flavor and the beer is pretty thin. There are many other pumpkin beers out there, I guess one plus on this one might be it's price, it comes in a 6 pack and is usually under 10 bucks.
