not a pumpkin beer, but a fall spiced English bitter type. orange copper in color, looks the part, but again from grittys, where is the head? no foam at all, this beer looks entirely flat. it smells like an esb, with some brown ale type of malts and a touch of amber sweetness. gentle but definite clove and allspice notes, and perhaps vanilla or honey sweetness on the closing. not extremely complex or unique, but a plenty palatable heap of flavors thrown together here. like all of their beers at grittys, it needs a lot more carbonation and texture to it, this feels like a glass of water. with a better feel, this beer could do it for me, but for now there are so many other higher quality fall seasonals that I will not be revisiting this one for awhile. maybe a good brew for those new to spiced ales, as the flavors are quite relaxed on that front.
Serving type: on-tap
