One of those run of the mill pumpkin beers. You can find it in most places in the east coast but that doesn't mean you would put start fantasy pumpkin beer roster. It's more of a third tier flex option if you had to drink it because your main beers weren't refrigerated. It's a dark brown, hoppy at the start and finish. Not much lacing but spices are present throughout without the sweetness. Drink it of its on special and if you need a 6 pack for under $10 maybe grab it otherwise steer clear .

Caramely-copper pour color, minimal head that dissipated pretty quickly.

Nutmeg, wintery spice smell, pumpkiny obviously.

Tasted like a watery pumpkin pie.

Medium body, caramel-ish tasting finish for me. Average carbonation.

Enjoyable, not a go-to beer though.
