Bottle > Pint Glass

A - Clear gold half a finger of white fizzy head, no lacing.
S - Cinnamon sugar, apple juice, pumpkin puree.
T - There's actually a ton of bitter apple flavor in this, very off for this style, some pumpkin, a lot of cinnamon.
M - Thin, very metallic, and watery.
O - Terrible example of the style, while I thought the apple at the aroma would be good, it reflects bad in the taste.
