From a 12 ounce bottle into a snifter.

Dark amber liquid with orange hues. Creamy, oatmeal-colored head a finger thick and dissipates quickly. 4

Spicy and tea-like with the initial smells. Reminds me of chai, just like the Imperial Pumpkin from Dry Dock. Interesting. Sweet and vanilla-like. Not bad. 4

Well, with Dry Dock the pumpkin spiced chai thing worked, as the body was thicker, creamy and felt like a beer. This tastes like chai and feels like it too. Thin-bodied, clove-heavy and teal-like, this just doesn't taste or feel like a beer. The pumpkin flavor is not over the top and the mix of spices all work well, but again, I almost don't feel like this is a beer save the robust carbonation. T- 3.25 F- 3.25

Overall, this is a great chai with some booze, but an okay beer that feels like a pumpkin chai.

Really nice pumpkin ale.
Super smooth and easy to drink.

This is a pumpkin beer you can drink a few of and still enjoy.
