look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Bottle: Slim 355mL bottle, funky label.
Appearance: lightly hazed orange-amber with light carbonation and a decent, thick head.
Aroma: rather sweeter than the (only) other pumpkin ale I have had. This smells much preferable - sweet pumpkin with nutmeg, cinnamon and light grains.
Taste: follows the nose almost verbatim. Perhaps a little stronger on the sweetness - don't think I could down one too quickly.
Aftertaste: the spices come through more strongly on the aftertaste. Really different, but quite nice.
Mouth feel: seems about right - medium-bodied with a light, fine carbonation.
Overall: very different, and really quite nice. Not sure I'd have one too often, but for a change it is quite good. Particularly good since I picked it up for $8 a 6-pack since it was a failed "Halloween special" at the local. Mwahahaha!
