This is the best pumpkin beer I've ever had. With that said, I'm not a big pumpkin beer drinker but I'm willing to try one every once in a while.

L - Dark Orange Color. Very little head that disappears quickly
S - Light Pumpkin smell with a cloves.
T - Pumpkin and cloves. Not too sweet but
M - Medium body, crisp and not overpowering.
O- Not too sweet and a good reminder what good pumpkin beer should be like.

Hard to move the needle in a pumpkin beer. The best of the lot is probably Carton golden squash beer -

A: Clear, orange tea color, decent lacing but a fast fade head (its the pumpkin and the sugar)

S: Good pumpkin pie smell, spice, esters, sugary, gord meat

T: Pie crust, dough, esters, raisins, allspice, cooked pumpkin, caramel, finishes nicely sweet and spicy. Balanced.

F: Smooth, creamy, medium bodied, finish is best part.

Mid pack pumpkin beer.
