I paid $3.50 for the single always love trying new pumpkin ales regardless of already having a favorite (Night Owl)

A - Pours a very deep amber brown hue, clear with a solid 1/2 inch of opaque colored head that doesn't fizz out in seconds so yeah!
S - Smell is balanced no overbearing cinnamon or nutmeg, smells rather sweet with a vanilla dough like sweetness. I taste.
T - Quite good the cinnamon is a bit heavy but it masks the vegital bite of the pumpkin pretty well. Its sweet but not Pumking sweet giving a bit of malty crust like body and vanilla like dough.
M - Medium bodied sort of chewy really digging that its not overall bitter.

Overall it meets my expectations of balanced malt to spices and its doesn't have a super heavy hop profit (malty like it should be) I would have this again if approached with a six pack.

Looks pretty clear caramel amber deep dark roasted notes as well with a cream khaki tan head forms nice and thick even speckled lacing is left behind.

Aroma rich pumpkin spice, caramel malts, pumpkin flesh a bit of crust notes…really works well together.

Flavor a spicy mix of booze and all spice, cinnamon, and nutmeg that all overshadow the pumpkin additions. That harsh perfume like character is out of balance here and makes it much more difficult to enjoy than some of the better versions that have more balance.

Mouthfeel is a bit harsh heavy spice notes really kill the palate and basically fatigue sets in after a few different versions of this same pumpkin ale style the good wants stand out and the bad and the average kind of run together.

Overall impression is it is drinkable but not stand out amongst the group of pumpkin ales I’ve had this year.
