Beer pours a bit of a head, but not much more. Color is a dark amber and quite transparent. Smell is nice and spicy, with enough color to it to make it apparent that it really is a pumpkin ale, but not so much as to overwhelm you with the individual ingredients of it.
First sip is quite well bodied. There is a predominant spice component to it; however the overall feel of the beer doesn't appear to be put too off kilter with it being there. Carbonation is solid and quite complementary. The aftertaste does a great job at finishing the beer, all the while giving off several unique flavors that aren't perceived anytime other than there.
As pumpkin beers go, this one should be the one you judge all others off of. It really is a solid find.
