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.

It's time for so many pumpkin brews to pop up. Some are really great. This is not one of the great ones.

My bottle looks flat. The color is fine but there is almost no head. The aroma is a sharp spice.

The taste is mildly spicy but otherwise had little going on. The mouthfeel of this bottle is poor but the aftertaste and burp are pretty nice.

I don't want to try this again.

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.
