Special thanks to BeerFMAndy for sending me this brew here recently.

Presently #8 in the pumpkin ale category here on BA.

A: Poured a very murky, pumpkin color, with a small, whisky head that still had staying power. RESILIENCE!!

S: My wife got mint on the nose. I got fresh, clean linen with cinnamon and nutmeg. Also, it had sort of a marshmallowy center that broke up what could have been a true spice bomb.

T: This had a really nice brown ale quality about it, yet still it retained its pumpkin ale roots. I'll change my assessment of "marshmallow" to "Mallow Creme."

M: Really nice on the palate: Low carbonation, not overly sweet, and certainly drinkable. A bit of a booze burn, but it was of the candy-coated variety.

O: Thanks for the honor, Andy! Definitely a keeper!

I am getting a little tired of pumpkin beers, especially ales, at this point, but I wanted to make this the year to review as many as possible while they were available.

From the bottle: "Hand-crafted using real pumpkin and savory pumpkin pie spices with hints of all natural cinnamon and nutmeg. Perle hops perfectly balance with Munich, roasted, and caramel malts."

This is one orange beer! The fizzy, foamy finger of head had a definite light-orange cast while it lasted. Color was an orangish-amber (SRM = > 13, < 17) with NE-quality clarity and pumpkin highlights. Nose was more sweet than spicy and I was put in mind of cinnamon toast. Mouthfeel was medium and the taste was very pleasant with the cinnamon and the malt, especially the caramel malt, interacting beautifully. I really felt like it was liquid cinnamon toast! Finish was semi-dry with the spices being balanced out nicely. I feel renewed in my attempt to review such beers. YMMV.
