Had a little trouble finding this one on the West Coast. Finally got my hands on a couple four-packs and was very impressed by this beer. Poured into glass.
Appearance: Nice "pumpkin" orange coloring. Not too much carbonation. The head dissipated fairly quickly with no lacing left on the glass.
Smell: Your nose has to search for the multitude of flavors. Hints of cinnamon, clove, pumpkin pie, slight alcohol all mix very well. Smells like Fall!
Taste: Each one I drink I taste something that wasn't there before. Initial taste of alcohol and the signature hops are very light giving way to letting your tastebuds search for the flavors. The flavors of pumpkin, clove, and cinnamon mix so well you almost believe you're mistaken. Very subtle and not an overtly "pumpkin" beer like many others.
Mouthfeel: Crisp yet thick. Not very carbonated but very smooth and subtle around the middle to back of the tongue.
Drinkability: You simply can't have just one. Perfect for Fall or any season where good friends and family are around.
Serving type: bottle
