Better than I think it get's credit for. Appearance is a dark brown with a tan head that fizzes away quickly. The smell is pumpkin although a little subtle, with allspice and nutmeg on the nose. The taste is more spice than pumpkin and the mouthfeel is a little thin for me. But for the price I thought it was a very nice value for what it is.

This brew pours a dark orange/copper which is darker at the top than the bottom. There is a nice fluffy white head and moderate lacing on the glass.

The smell is strong with nutmeg and coriander. There is also a thick roasted malt backbone here unfortunately, there is not much pumpkin.

The taste follows the nose with mostly nutmeg and coriander but very light on the pumpkin taste. There is a strong roasted malt backbone with a few light hops on the backend.

Overall this is a pretty good beer with deep roasted malts and spices but it fails as a pumpkin ale. If you make a pumpkin ale, pumpkin should be at the top of your list of ingredients. Still it is not a complete loss.

good beer. Nose has the cinnamon and spices that are usually present with a pumpkin ale.. Color is very nice clear orange-deep yellow hue. good head. the spices are predominant and outdo the pumpkin. The beer is rather light and the carbonation is fantastic.
