Pours a light amber into my pint glass. This brew really brings the fall season into full swing, glad to have the opportunity to review it this year. Aromas of your standard run of the mill pumpkin pie spicing, along with a kick of hops to throw you for a loop. Taste is amazing, a balance of scent and taste in this one, with a slight bitterness and spice to start that reminds me of a rye brew, followed by a flavorful jolt of fall spices and a light, light hint of sweetness to finish it off. Alcohol is barely noticeable, good balance of malt while somehow managing to still account for a hop presence in a pumpkin beer. Mouthfeel is great, not too light, not too heavy, almost perfect with a medium body and mild carbonation. Drinkability is extremely high...definitely a pumpkin ale I will be having again this fall-

Hands down my favorite seasonal offering of the pumpkin variety. Punkin is complex with multiple, delicious flavors throughout each sip. There's coriander, cloves, and, of course pumpkin flavor that dominate each sip. What's so fantastic about this is that you don't all these flavors at once; they wash over your mouth individually. It's like eating a delicious pumpkin spice-cake. My only complaint is that each bottle is 250 calories! I only drink one per sitting due to the calorie count. Other than that there's nothing I can fault this delicious beer over!
