22oz into a tulip. Pours a clear copper color w/ a thin white head that settles to a sudsy film.

Aroma is fresh pumpkin pie: nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, and fresh vegetal pumpkin. Really hits all the right spice notes.

Taste likewise leads off with lots of cinnamon, tastes kind of like a Red Hot. Clean and natural, not artificial tasting like many pumpkin beers.

Nice full mouthfeel.

Overall a tasty, enjoyable, spice-forward pumpkin beer.

Solid pumpkin ale. This was one of my favorites last year, but it tastes a little thin this time around. Better than most but not amongst the best.
