once again the dirty30 hooking it up Jackie o's style, the happens to be a 2015 bottle. this one is nice but this is no schlafly or alewerks, but just shy f that ballpark. Jackie o's continues to impress.

Pours a coppery Amber color. Aroma is nutmeg, Clove and allspice with a touch of sweetness. Flavor is holiday spice with a slight vanilla sweet malty flavor. Has a nice body and overall is very nice for the style.

2015 bottling, fresh.

A: Dark dark brown pour. Small light brown head that fizzes right out. No lacing or retention.

S: Not a huge spice bomb like I was expecting. Pumpkin and cinnamon mainly. Light indistinct other spices.

T: Wow, actual pumpkin flavor. Malty sweet. Lots of cinnamon and nutmeg and allspice. Finish is surprisingly dry as the sweetness runs out and just the spices remain to linger on.

M: Medium bodied, smooth and dry.

O: Very nice pumpkin ale. Real pumpkin flavor is a welcome change of pace. Not being a nutmeg bomb is another. Nice and smooth. Nothing earth-shattering but an excellent example of a good pumpkin ale.
