A - A slightly vigorous pour yields a cascading late developing two fingers worth of orange tinged light khaki colored whipped froth comprised of big chunky bubbles and a bit of a rocky top... Average retention gives way to a full rich layer of lacing... The color is a slightly murky mix of deep rich amber and medium brown... A couple of stray rapid paced carbonation bubbles rise within...

S - Rich roasted pumpkins... Sweet potatoes... Light brown sugar... The spice component is predominately nutmeg and clove with just a hint of cinnamon... Overall the spice profile is rather mild... Some light and sweet orange zest also lingers beneath the surface which adds a nice layer of depth and complexity...

T - Brown sugar... Sweet roasted pumpkin puree... A light graham cracker crust presence... A surprising light roast malt component... A hint of orange zest... The spice component is mild but starts to emerge on the finish...

M - Dense... Medium bodied... Spry prickly carbonation... Rich... Sightly sleek... Uniquely satisfying...

D - A very well developed Pumpkin Ale... Rich and robust... Rather quaffable... Falls squarely in the middle of the Pumpkin Ale spectrum between spicy and cloying... Tasty and satisfying... The orange bottle is a nice touch as well...

A- brown orange, decent head & laces
S- spices, clove prominent
T - Smoother than anticipated without the overwhelming pumpkin pie tase in most offerings, more pumkin, less spice - carbonation added a refreshing bite
M- medium, balanced, but not lasting note
O- probably the best I've had of the bunch. Could even do another one.

Poured into two pint glasses in my kitchen prior to seeing Brian Wilson-Jeff Beck show.

Poured one finger of head on a clear, dark straw colored body.
The aroma is rich pumpkin and spice.
The taste is malty with a nice pumpkin flavor.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
Pumpkin ales are not my favorite, but this one is tolerable.
