DISCALIMER: THIS BEER WAS OUT OF SEASON WHICH I DIDN"T REALIZE UNTIL AFTER I DRANK IT. PERHAPS A BATCH THAT ISN"T MONTHS PAST DATE WOULD BE BETTER>

As a pumpkin ale, this beer was a disappointment. As an overall beer it is decent.

Pours dark amber with a thick white head that leaves some lacing.

Smells hoppy with a hint of pumpkin, not pumpkin in a dessert sense though, more like pumpkin in a vegetable sense. Kind of squash-like.

Tastes more hoppy than anything., Pretty bitter, but there is a very slight hint of pumpkin and spices at the end.

Medium body with some nice carbonation.

Overall it was decent. It really didn't strike me as a pumpkin beer and in sixpoint's defense it isn't advertised as a pumpkin ale really. There is a pumpkin on the can but it doesn't say "pumpkin ale" anywhere.
