look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

This brew pours a copper color with a thin head which dissipates quickly and little lacing. Low carbonation.

The smell is has some pumpkin and spices in it; possibly cardamom and allspice. Caramel malts and brown sugar.

The taste is light on both the pumpkin and the spices. Not much pumpkin taste at all.

The mouthfeel is thin and watery

Overall I think this is a complete miss as a pumpkin ale. In don't understand the high ratings for this brew. Little pumpkin smell or taste. Little pumpkin spice smell or taste; this brew is even light on the caramel malts. There are much better pumpkin ales out there.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - Pretty run of the mill appearance: Clear body of red/amber with a bubbly off-white head that recedes moderately.

S - VERY pungent, with aromas of freshly baked pumpkin pie dominating. The pumpkin pie spice specifically is very forward. I don't know any other way to describe it than saying it smells just like a pumpkin pie. Literally.

T - As with the nose, pumpkin pie is forward with nutmeg and cinnamon being upfront, ginger and allspice taking the backseat. The malt notes are very reminiscent of a pie crust... I'm now starting to think that this is actually a pumpkin pie in liquid form.

M - Smooth, carbonation relatively low.

O - I think this surpasses Pumpking as my new favorite pumpkin beer. Really good if you are looking for something that is forward with the pumpkin pie spice.
