First off, this is a Pumpkin beer brewed without any pumpkins. It only has the spices normally associated with the style added to get the effect of the pumpkin style. It would be hard to tell the difference between this beer and one with actual pumpkins in it.

It pours a clear amber orange with a small wispy head. This seems to be low in carbonation. The smell is straight up pumpkin pie spices. There is cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg and a hint of vanilla.

I am not a fan of the style but that is usually because the spices are up front and kick you in the face. The taste on this is subdued and very mellow. The addition of vanilla really made this beer great. I am not a fan of vanilla in stouts but it really works here with the other spices. There is a creaminess that helps the mouthfeel but the carbonation is low which makes this beer seem watered down.

Overall, it is a great take on the style and even though its a little high to be called a session ale, this one would be okay with 3 or 4 rounds. Perfect for Thanksgiving dinner or sitting around a campfire in the fall.
