look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75

DATE TASTED: October 25, 2013 ... GLASSWARE: Wychwood pint... OCCASION: unwinding with some pre-Halloween pumpkin!... APPEARANCE: opaque autumn-brown body with a thin off-white head--but zero lacing?!... AROMA: distinct pumpkin waft and lightly toasted malts that take precedent over the pumpkin; spices are soft, subdued...PALATE: slightly warming, medium-bodied balanced ale that sits well in the throat; inoffensive but not impressive...TASTE: malty; solidly built with a slightly suggestive pumpkin/spice flavor--modestly autumnal...OVERALL: Situated among other pumpkin bombers and October brews, this beer finds itself slightly below the competition, if only because it offers little truly memorable qualities...not a bad thing, just not much of a thing like waiting for the Great Pumpkin instead of trick-or-treating...

Serving type: growler

Bought for a pumpkin carving party, had some leftovers.

A&S: Aroma consists of light apple cider & pumpkin smells, pale malts, and spices (I can't lay a finger on them but they aren't the traditional pumpkin spices). Lively transparent orange colored beer. Specks of lacing. Fizzy white head disappears quickly.

T&M: Lots of apple tastes, not so much pumpkins. Finish non-bitter with some spiciness. Crisp feel to this beer. Light body with a high sparkling water kind of carbonation.

Overall: Not much to say about this one. It wasn't very expensive from what I remember, so I'm not disappointed by the price vs quality of this beer. But I wouldn't recommend to anyone it or buy it again. Had some good quality pumpkin beers this year, this one might be the worst or second to worst, battling with Pumpkick from New Belgium.
