A: This poured a clear gold with some white head.
S: It smelled like copper hops and roasted barley and pumpkin seed, with some coriander and clove and nutmeg.
T: It tasted like spicy clove and coriander and nutmeg and cinnamon, with some roasted pumpkin seed and copper hops and pie crust. It had a clean and sweet and spicy aftertaste.
M: It was somewhat thick with moderate carbonation. Nice full body.
D: This was a nice overall pumpkin beer. The scent and taste and body were all perfectly good, although nothing special. It had a smooth finish, so it was easy to drink. If you enjoy pumpkins ales, this is a solid and easy to find (east coast) example of the style.
