Pours a clear copper color. Aroma of pumpkin pie spices and pumpkin. In the taste, strong all spice and raw cinnamon, just a little pumpkin flavor and tangy vegetable notes. Lots of spice, and a fair malt sweetness. Medium bodied feel with a strong carbonation. Overall, this is a decent pumpkin ale with lots of spices.

A: Cloudy orange-pink hue with a thin cream-colored head, a touch of carbonation to be seen. Thin lacing, and eventually the head completely disappears, even the usual ring around the top.
S: Cinnamon and nutmeg, some malt in the background to remind you it's a beer. Perfectly autumn-themed, if a bit too assertive about the fact.
T: Cinnamon prevails heavily on the front, while nutmeg is dominant on the finish. Gosh, that's unbalanced. Not unpleasant for a few sips, just very, very heavy on the spices. Approaching the 'cinnamon challenge' in liquid form. Is there even any pumpkin in this?
M: Not much carbonation but not super smooth either. The finish is (I've never thought to use this description before) powdery, as if the ground spices are in my mouth, too.
O: Jaw-jacker is right. While cinnamon may be a pleasant spice, you will get your fill of it in three sips from this beer. Until now I've thought that I wanted a beer as unbalanced and spice-forward as it was possible to make, approaching blended pumpkin pie with alcohol, but I rescind that statement. While enjoyable to drink one, this ends up being neither a well-crafted beer nor a even guilty pleasure.
EDIT: Read the description, I guess there wasn't supposed to be any pumpkin present. Those misleading bastards!
