Poured into a pint glass.

Pours a dark amber tea like color. Has a white almost yellowish thick fluffy head. Head settles to a nice wisp layer on top that fades after it sits. Good carbonation and nice tight bubbles. Pretty good looking brew.

Brew smells of spice; pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and a subtle malty backbone. Pretty good nose.

Brew is a bit thin and not as malty as I had hoped. Decent flavors albeit muted a bit. Slight pumpkin, and the maltiness is faint as the spices and peppery carbonated taste and feel are in the forefront. Some caramel as well. Brew is crisp and drinks easy and finishes slightly hopped and a little dry. A pretty good brew.

This is a pretty good Pumpkin brew, I am just not tasting much pumpkin. Very drinkable, a decent very sessionable brew though.
