Pours an effervescent orange/amber with a pinky of cream colored head. Clouds up a bit as the bottle is drained, traces of lacing & head retention

S: Cinnamon, nutmeg, faint pumpkin notes that get stronger as it warms

T: Follows the nose, slight squashyness & dryness up front, plus just a bit mushroom & dirt. Dryness, squashy notes, with some faint metallic notes as this warms. Finishes dry, with nutmeg & all-spice

MF: Light bodied, slight carbonation, pretty dry

Slight better than most pumpkin beers, but still not a must-buy

The beer pours a syrupy looking dull cooper with little visible carbonation, no head, and no sediment. The nose is ripe pumpkin aromas forward followed by a fruit,y rye-like spiciness and a hint of citrus. The taste presents the same vegetable/gourd sweetness, a hint of spice (although still not traditional pie spices), and slightly tart lemony finish. It's medium bodied, syrupy sweet, undercarbonated, spicy, and has a semi-dry tartness that lingers in the finish. This is a relatively unique pumpkin ale, one that doesn't overwhelm with spice, but highlights the gourd instead. I'd probably opt for a pumpkin ale with more pie spice notes in the future, but like that it's not nearly as sweet as the majority of beers in the pumpkin ale category.
