Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours an orange-copper color with a small white fizzy head. The head fades quite quickly leaving only a trace level of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is very pleasant overall. It has a nice roasted pumpkin smell mixed with a little bit of brown sugar and caramel sweetness. Other aromas of some cinnamon and a decent amount of nutmeg are there as well, giving the aroma a nice, semi-dry, pumpkin pie aroma overall.

Taste – The taste begins with a decent caramel and brown sugar sweetness as well as some pumpkin and bready flavors. As the flavor advances the sweetness fades with the overall taste growing slightly drier. Along with the sweetness fading some, the pumpkin flavors grow more intense and take on more notes of a roasted nature. The spice flavors also come to the tongue at this time, with a decent showing of nutmeg and allspice and a little bit of cinnamon as well. In the end, some of the sweeter flavors that were lost come back and grow a bit more intense, with all the flavor transitions throughout the taste, leaving a nice roasted and moderately sweetened spiced pumpkin flavor on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the medium side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the medium to slightly lower side. Overall the medium thickness and carbonation are rather nice of the style as it makes for a rather nice balance between drinkability as well as still maintaining enough of a thickness to support the more spiced pumpkin flavors of the brew.

Overall – A rather sweet but enjoyable pumpkin ale with a nice blend of roasted pumpkin and spice. Overall rather easy drinking and tasty.
