Pours orange amber, cl;ear, lager bubbles floating upwards. Creamy head of off white foam that lasted. Nose is cinnamon, ginger, biscuit, clove, breaddy allspice. Some pumpkin, not a lot, light caramel and faint hops. Taste is watery and thin, not too sweet. Cracker malt and moderate ticklish carbonation. Cinnamon, ginger faint pumpkin and a touch of hops in the lingering dry finish. Grass, dry biscuit and no slickness in the mouthfeel at all. Spices tame a bit as the beer warms and then the watery finish lets the flavor fade a bit too quickly.; Not great and needs a bit more flavor.

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.
