Served in a pint glass on 9-4-12.
A: As proposed by the "UFO", an unfiltered hazy orange amber body supports a thin but existent head.
S: Bitter earthy pumpkin and a zesty blend of sweet and herbal spices. Perhaps some nutmeg and just a hint of cinnamon in the mix. Smell of pumpkin pie.
M: Body is a bit watery at first sips and seems to somewhat subdue those elements of the aroma I expected to match more on my taste buds. Pumpkin meaty sweetness hangs around the palate though and it gets added to nicely with every sip. Overall, I'd call it a good session offering for that Fall backyard party.
T: There's the jacked up, sweet, boozy candy pumpkin flavor in some brews and then there's what I'd like to call the "Honest Pumpkin Ale" with its true taste of pumpkin without the extraneous hoopla...This is an "Honest Pumpkin Ale". True pumpkin taste honored, not drowned out, with the Fall spices.

12 ounce bottle, stamp on bottle says enjoy by 02/15/14. Guess I can't complain, a buddy gave me a bottle of this a couple weeks ago so it was free. And I'm in the mood for a pumpkin beer so might was well try it! Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a cloudy orange/amber color with some sediment floaties noticeable. There's also an inch and a half off-white head with good retention, along with a decent amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like pumpkin spices and pumpkin. The taste is similar to the aroma, it tastes like pumpkin spices (nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves), pumpkin, and some bready malt. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit creamy, smooth and easy to drink. I liked this brew, hopefully this upcoming fall I'll try a fresher batch of this!
