Picked this up at Wegman's enjoyed chilled in a mug.
The color is deep bronzed with dark amber shade of light brown sugar with two finger band of cream and thick lace. The smell is herbal with light woodiness and hint of spice up front with mild vegetal note with slight fruity odor mixing with sweet malt and clove. The feel is spicy and dry with bitterness on the tip of the tongue with a sutble vegetal slick and oily texture with sweet glimpses but moderately high carbonation and bitter dominance with semi dry finish
The flavor is nicely spiced with some clove and cinnamon elements with a more herbal piney hop and vegetal taste with some woodiness in the middle of the palate with slight hop bitterness echoing the spice with peppery lingering quality and slight vegetal bellpepper green quality with some semisweet malt flavor w/ hints of ginger and toasted grain in the finish. Overall a fairly bitter spicy version of a fall seasonal seems like a pumpkin ale with an american pale ale that is pretty hoppy as the base which is interesting and drinkable.
