On tap at Bar Hop First Anniversary. Dark orange with shred of a white head. First sample was very easy to drink, a bit of a squash soup. A tad astringent in the finish. The second showed a lot more Cinnamon and coca colish.Good there was no real pumpkin as I am pumpkined out.

Bottle: Poured a hazy amber color ale with a small foamy head with average retention and some light lacing. Aroma of light pumpkin and grainy notes is so-so. Taste is a mix between some very light pumpkin notes with some grainy notes and light spices. Body is quite full with average carbonation. This one fell a bit short in terms of pumpkin taste.

On cask at Cask Days 2012, into a pint glass.

Reddish orange, with some cream bubbles serve as a somewhat sparse head. Nose of pumpkin, light spice character and earth-y, gruit-y qualities as well. Taste has pumpkin skins, some ginger spice, sweeter doughy earthy and herbal gruit character. Lighter medium feel and lower carbonation. A blend of styles that I enjoyed, draught/bottles would be quite nice I think.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: It has a nice semi-cloudy golden/orange color to it. It has a nice off-white head that dies down somewhat fast and leaves some spotty lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of bready malts, pumpkin pie spices, some herbal notes and some pumpkin.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some sweet bready malts, a slight earthy/herbal note, some spices and light pumpkin.

Mouthfeel: It has a low/medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with good flavors and aromas. I expected more of that Pumpkin Pie taste in here but it's still a nice blend nevertheless.
