Thanks to gueuzehead for the extra!
Pours murky orange color with a small white head that fades instantly. A ring of lacing.
Smells like most pumpkin beers. I get heavier nutmeg than other spices, but also contains cinnamon and brown sugar.
Similar flavors. Some good malty caramel malts and pumpkin flavors, but the spices are ratcheted up a bit past my preference. Pronounced nutmeg and cinnamon. Alcohol shows a bit here, but the extra body outweighs the booze coming through.
Carbonation levels are a tad low and finishes somewhat astringent. Decent body, but the carb level and finish hurt mouthfeel.
All in all a pretty solid pumpkin beer and much better than some atrocities I've had.
