Lighter in apperance then I would have expected. Initially has a nice cap of foam but it fades and had no retention. Kind of a orange clover honey color with good clarity. Lovely subdued aroma of pie spices such as nutmeg and cinnamon as well as toasted squash. Nutty. Not artificial smelling which is nice. The flavor is very balanced, spicy with cardamom, cinnamon and nutmeg. There is also a real squash note. Some bitterness and a good backbone. Medium bodied, low carbonation, lingering bitter note. Not my favorite pumpkin ale, but a very, very good one.
