Served in a conical pint glass

A - This beer has a burnt orange body with amber highlights. It was topped with an inch of beige head that quickly disappeared.

S - The smell has the usual suspects, pumpkin spice, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

T - It tastes of pumpkin spice, and that is about it.

M - Thin

O - This is a decent pumpkin beer. The mouthfeel is watered down though.

3.38/5  rDev -2.6%

Aroma: Surprise! Nutmeg and cinnamon, with a light ginger aroma after some deep sniffs. Mild pumpkin aroma as swirled. Some sweet malt. No hop aroma.

Appearance: Light orange in color. Brilliantly clear and sparkling. Small white head with fine bubbles, mostly from the nucleation site on the bottom of my glass.

Flavor: Malty but not overly sweet, more like a Vienna lager. A good mixture of nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger that is not overwhelming but does stay with you after the sip. No astringency. No hop flavors. Finish is crisp and lagery with a hint of pilsner malt. Mouthfeel is a bit light.

Overall: Not a bad beer. I like the crispness of it and the well balanced spices.

2.95/5  rDev -15%

Appearance:
Pours a cloudy, pale orange color with absolutely no head. Zip! Plenty of carbonation however.

Aroma:
Nothing but spices. Ginger, nutmeg, and a bit of cinnamon. Has a pleasant sweetness to it although the whole package leaves a lot to be desired. Light pumpkin notes.

Taste:
Light for a pumpkin beer, but everything carries over from the aroma. Spices are dominant in the flavor profile. I was hoping for more than a load of spice.

Mouthfeel:
Medium-bodied lager with hardly any noticable carbonation.

Overall:
Nothing special here. It's not the worst pumpkin beer I've ever had but t's also far from the best. The spice overload is a bit too much to enjoy.
