Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Brewer's Art goblet. Moderate hand. No identifiable date on the label.

A: 3.75 Ruby red-orange body with a slight haziness. 1/2 finger of off-white head, below average retention. Light lacing.

S: 4.0 Cinnamon and nutmeg, strongly. Followed by pumpkin flesh & ginger. Raisin. Indistinct herbal notes.

T: 3.5 Spices fire first, followed by some malts and pumpkin. Tea-like tannins and herbal notes appear midway. Hops build to a fairly dry finish. Lingering hop bitterness and slightly astringent herbal spice in the aftertaste. Minimal alcohol presence.

M: 3.75 Moderate carbonation, slightly prickly. Moderate body. Good, if not a touch thinner than expected.

O: Not a bad pumpkin, although by the end I was getting more tea flavors than pumpkin or pie spice. Interesting.

Prost!

Fantastic pumpkin ale! Pours a dark amber color with great pumpkin and spice nose. First sip tastes like your drinking a liquid pumpkin pie. Very well priced and well worth seeking out if you enjoy this style.
