3.6/5  rDev +5.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from bottle into pint glass

Appearance – Pours an amber-orange color with a one finger white head. The head faded relatively fast to leave only a light amount of lacing.

Smell – The aroma is sweet and is big of pumpkin and caramel. Mixed with these aromas are a strong presence of pie spices; nutmeg, cinnamon, and allspice.

Taste – The taste begins of a roasted pumpkin and malt flavor. There is a lighter caramel upfront which fades as the taste moves on. More toward the middle of the taste come bready flavors as well as nutmeg and allspice. These take the flavors to the end where a cinnamon spice joins the flavors leaving a drier spiced pumpkin flavor on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is average in terms of creaminess as well as carbonation. The lack of a thick body, while not great for the roasted flavors, is rather nice for creating a crisper finish to the brew.

Overall – An alright pumpkin brew. It is on the slightly drier side with an easy drinking flavor profile.
