Appears light orange in color with a small white head.

It smells slightly sour; there are hints of nutmeg and cinnamon. There are also hints of pumpkin to the beer.

It tastes initially of pumpkin. There is a smooth cinnamon and nutmeg type of a flavor. The beer ends with a bit of a sweet malt flavor. This is a basic pumpkin beer but it tastes pretty good.

There is a crisp mouthfeel with moderate carbonation.

The drinkability is ok, but is a little too sweet to drink a lot of it.

Overall a decent pumpkin beer that is enjoyable but nothing amazing.

bummer. my first pumpkin beer of the season was brewed in wisconsin? purchased in golden, colorado. the flavor was entirely too spiced, like pumpkin in a can, and the beer had a filling malty element to it. i cant say i hate it, because i dont at all, but i had higher hopes for the inaugural brew of the season. dont think i could do a 6pack of this, the drinkability wasnt there. at least my palate is ready to go now!

This was an impromptu pick up, forgot I tried this, let's see if this fares any better:

Pours caramel with a 1" off-white head. Zero head rentention or lacing

S: Big pumpkin pie spices, cinamon, nutmeg & brown sugar up front. A little malt sweetness sneaks in, along with a little metallic taste. Finsishes sweet with some astrignency

MF: Light/medium bodied, a little low in cabonation, but skews too sweet balance-wise

Drinks okay, basically one or 2 & that's it. We're having a halloween paty, I'm sure I can foist these on some unsuspecting guests...I messed up (again)

Pours a clear orange with a tight white head that leaves a decent amount of lacing.

Smells of spice and some malty sweetness. A little pumpkin in the nose, but not much.

Tastes of the spice mostly with the sweetness following. The spice is mostly cinnamon with some nutmeg and maybe ginger. The sweetness does have some pumpkin feel to it, but is more along the lines of caramel malt.

Mouthfeel is medium with some creaminess to it.
