This is the best fall seasonal available that I've sampled in a long time.
It is a deep red/orange in color. Average head. The aroma is dominated by malt and the gentle spiced/pumpkin smell. Tastes malty, with a very acceptable amount of spice. The pumpkin flavor is subdued and does not over power the actual beer flavors. It merely accentuates the maltiness. 7% abv...I would never have guessed.
I've never really been a fan of flavored/spiced beers, but this one breaks those rules.
Serving type: on-tap

A - tea, copper, dark burnt orange, carbonation bubbles to the top, white head, mild lacing
S - pumpkin pie and spices, dark sugars, some alcohol, hints or cinnamon
T - can definitely taste the pumpkin and spices, dark sugars, finishes malty
M - creamy, mild carbonation
O - the best pumpkin beer I have had to date, very rich flavors that blend excellently together and are greatly complimented by the smell and creaminess in the mouth feel.
