Brown colored pour with an off-white head, hazy. Aroma has a wonderful balance between spices and malt with Cinnamon the refreshingly dominant scent. There is a good dose of ginger in the malty sweet flavor with some brown sugar bringing up the rear. Great balance between a solid malty body and restrained spices. Nice to see some underdog spices like cinnamon spices get some love, although the ginger notes fall into line with most ordinary pumpkins.

Still the dark brown malty lager is the best vehicle to carry this pumpkin taxi all the way to flavorville.
