Draft in a snifter, freshly tapped. Had no color, no body, and no presence. Would equate it with a a "Coors Light Pumpkin Ale". Was anxiously awaiting trying this one due to the amount of fresh pumpkin in the mash but sadly disappointed. Expected much more.

Back in VA for work. At Yard House in Virginia Beach. Served in a pint glass from the tap.

Appearance: dark pumpkin color I'm growing accustomed to seeing in the type. No head.

Smell: Pretty typical for the type with pumpkin pie. Less spicy than say the 25th anniversary Lakefront.

Taste: to be blunt... Disappointing. Fizz covers up the flavor. Tastes like a seltzer water with pumpkin notes.

Mouthfeel: again, like seltzer water. Ugh.

Overall: pedestrian. Lacks a real pop to it. Watered down. Huge disappointment.

No head. Bland flavor. Not much better than a run-of-the-mill average pumpkin ale.

I don't see any bottle date but at the bottom there is a number stating "1501300315"

Appearance: The body is a dark mahogany brown with very good transparency. The head is a creamy texture with an eggshell white color and a short stature. Not much head retention and no real lacing.

Aroma: There is a very light sulfur aroma intermixed with clove. The aroma feels very weak.

Taste: I get a very light bit of woody character mixed with some watered down cinnamon. Very light flavors.

Mouthfeel: The body is light. This beer doesn't need much of a body to carry the light flavors and aromas it provides but it still feels too light. It feels watered down.

Overall: If you are looking at a beer that hints towards pumpkin beer flavors but doesn't fully commit then this is your beer. If you are the type of person who wants your pumpkin beers to be a full-on experience then this will likely be a letdown. I wouldn't buy it again and I wouldn't recommend it. The beer is just too weak. If you really need to get a pumpkin beer and nothing else is around this is a drinkable and mildly enjoyable beer but the whole time you will probably be thinking about some other beer you wish you had.
