My first autumn beer of the year (even though it's only the beginning of August), this is tasty but not necessarily complex or even interesting. The beer's head is unremarkable and minimal lacing remains. The pumpkin flavor tastes fresh, and there's just a touch of spice along with it. Hops and malt are there to balance fairly well with the pumpkin. The mouthfeel is very smooth but could use a bit more carbonation to pick this one up. Overall, this was enjoyable, but mainly just because I like the style. I disagree with many reviewers who say that it tastes "bland"--but maybe this year's release has more pumpkin flavor. Anyway, while I enjoyed it, I won't be going out of my way to find it again.
