**not retired. Currently on cask at the Newark ale house.

A-dark caramel colored. Thin cream colored head.

S- smells like the pumpkin cream one would expect on a pumpkin cupcake. Smells good but faint.

T-comes in with a surprisingly nice taste of vanilla and pumpkin. Definitely reminds me of a pumpkin cupcake, a good one. The flavors are strong and they're of decent quality. Not adjunct tasting at all. No off flavors. Plus it's unique too. I like this.

M-low carbonation. Not really creamy. Almost watery. Semi-dry finish

O-really it's one of the more unique pumpkin ales I've had. It really is a great blend of the pumpkin mash and sweetness. Very drinkable. A must try for any pumpkin ale fan if they get the chance.

At the Iron Hill Newark's Cask Fest...
Appears a dark orange with a small white head that quickly fades away. Spotty lacing is left around the glass.
Smell is of vanilla beans, pumpkin pie, and lemon zest with a touch of cloves.
Taste is of the same with a standout vanillacream.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, sweet, with lemony zest in the finish.
