Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a light copper color with a thin white head. Poor retention and minimal lacing. Smell is very light, not nearly as spice laden as some other pumpkin beers. There is a nice note of caramel malt, as well as a light "holiday" spice mix. The taste is slightly sweet, almost no bitterness at all, and a noticeable alcohol characteristic at the end. Medium carbonation and body, the beer is quite drinkable for it's strength. Finishes fairly clean, overall a refreshing beer, not very much pumpkin flavor to speak of. It's also fairly difficult to find and expensive, so try it if you like, but there are better pumpkins in my opinion.
