Had on tap at Margarita's in Branford, poured into a pint glass. Comes out a pretty hazy copper color, solid head that sticks around, some lacing. Not a ton of pumpkin spice on the nose, sweet, malty, hints of spice. Sweet flavor, smooth, some spices in the back, a little bitter at the end. Overall a decent pumpkin beer, not too sweet nor spicy. Nothing offensive and very middle of the road; good beer.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: It has a quick fading head over a nice amber colored body with a slight haze.

Smell: The aroma is light overall. I get notes pumpkin pie spice standing out with a light touch of spicy/herbal hops.

Taste / Palate: I get mild pumpkin pie spice and light pie crust like maltiness. There is only a slight touch of hops in the finish. It is nicely balanced and fairly easy drinking.
