Bottle: Poured an orangey color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of cinnamon and cloves is quite strong with light pumpkin notes. Taste is also a nice mix between some strong notes of cinnamon and cloves with light pumpkin and some semi-sweet caramelized malt. Body is average with good carbonation. Well brewed with just about right amount of spices.

A: Light red amber color, big silky head which sticks nicely to the glass.
S: Cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg - pumpkin pie spices. Very strong, almost artificially strong smell.
T: Very nice spices which stick to the back of the throat very nicely. The taste, however, is more muted than the smell - and thus more believable. Very nice and refreshing flavor.
M: Good carbonation, but not lasting or overly airy. Fairly well balanced.
O: One of the better pumpkin ales I've had. Usually the pumpkin flavors tend to taste muted and watered down, but here they hold true to the claim. I think it suffers only in that some of the spices seem artificial, but I think to get enough of it to truly permeate the brew, this was probably a necessary compromise. Now here's hoping I can still get this in January when I'm craving October even more than I am now.
