Poured from a single bottle into a pint glass. 10/4

Pours rusty copper with scattered white foam. Hazy/cloudy. Malty nose, hints of pumpkin and spice. Taste is a light cinnamon, spiced malt, with nutmeg/clove making a cameo. Pumpkin-rind like bite at the end. Pie taste too.

A- pours a clear copper color with a nice two-finger frothy off-white head that retains long after the pour

S- vegetal aromas with some flowery notes, cinnamon & nutmeg, musty

T- the base beer drinks like an amber ale , there's quite a bit of malty backbone. Some cinnamon and pumpkin spice kick in mid-palate, the finish is spicy and dry

M- medium body with low carbonation, slightly foamy mouthfeel leads to a slick finish

O- more malt presence than most pumpkin ales I've had, which is welcomed. There's a nice spiciness in the flavor but nothing overpowers. Worth a try.

Pours a clear, bright bronze color with a white soapy head. Aroma of hops and pumpkin. In the taste, pumpkin and caramel malt, mild spice and a fair hop bitterness. Not as sweet as advertised, which is a good thing in this case. Leafy, tobaccoesque hop character and nutmeg in the finish. The pumpkin flavor remains dispersed throughout. Light to medium bodied mouth feel, with moderate carbonation and a spice/hop bite. Overall, this is a well crafted pumpkin ale, which is a distinctly American beer style.
