A: The beer is hazy amber yellow in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin yet dense beige head that never completely faded away.
S: Light to moderate aromas of pumpkins and pumpkin spices are present in the nose—nutmeg seems to stand out in particular.
T: The taste follows the smell but has a bit more complexity with slight bits of initial sweetness and hints of cardamom spices towards the finish.
M: It feels nearly medium-bodied, clean and a little smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I found this to be an easy-drinking pumpkin beer that has a good balance between the pumpkin flavors and spices. It would make for a good beer to pair with an autumn-themed dinner.

Pours a huge, dense, white head that collapses into a soapy white, half-inch foam. Wonderfully spicy aroma dominated by spice, with a touch of pumpkin behind it all. Amber-orange color. Starts off with spice and carbonation, the clovier-spice takes hold until the biscuit malt comes into play with the pumpkin; pumpkin pie or spiced cookies - this is the main flavor profile. The spice mutes as the finish comes on, then it's lingering pumpkin malt.
I absolutely love this one. One of two (Southern Tier "Pumpking") pumpkin biers I will drink. The addition of pumpkin to the mash allows this lager to showcase the pumpkin with a clarity that is unparalleled. This bier made me like pumpkin pie. When I drink this, I know it's Autumn.

Had this in a bottle poured into a glass.
Appearance: Perhaps the most impressive part of this beer and that should tell you where the rest of the review is going. Dark coppery color, reminds me of a dark apple cider in look. The bubbles streaming to the top would suggest a lot of carbonation and while there is some head, it dissipates rather quickly.
Smell: Hardly anything to report here. Kind of a sweet smell to the beer.
Taste: Good, clean and not much if any after taste. The whole of the beer has this light feeling to it, and perhaps that is what you are looking for in a pumpkin beer. I wanted a little more out of it. I would recommend this for a football game tailgate.
Mouthfeel: Despite the presence of clearly a lot of carbonation, doesn't actually overwhelm you. Like I said above, clean crisp beer.
Overall: I wouldn't recommend this one for someone looking for the ultimate pumpkin beer. But if you wanted a taste of the season without getting full, then this would be your beer.
