I adored this a year ago, it's lost something on me. One of us has changed. It's not you, it's me. Rich brown color, taste of graham crackers and some spice. Pumpkin doesn't really taste to me, but I expect more pumpkin pie spices.
Light bodied, medium carbonation. Kind of disappointed.

$1.23 single.

Appearance (3.75) : dark cranberry/currant red body with a frothy 1 finger head that dissipates to a ring within a minute. Opacity is near 90%.

Smell (4) : Pumpkin flesh, maple, cinnamon, nutmeg, faint clean chlorinated water. An overall smell of a pumpkin pie baking in the oven is dominant.

Taste (3.75) : a little sour, watery. Aftertaste is of clove and pumpkin, and if you leave it in your mouth a few seconds the pumpkin pie flavor takes hold. A little ginger and nutmeg. It gets better the more you drink it. The aftertaste is great - spiced cinnamon pumpkin pie, and it stays with you. Better straight out of the bottle so more carbonation hits.

Mouthfeel (1.75) : kills it for me. Watery and soupy. Almost no body, and finishes like Aquafina. Slight carbonation. Better carbonation out of the bottle.

Overall (3.29) : the taste, smell, and appearance aren't half bad but the mouthfeel is totally absent in body, depth, and dimension. It's literally like spiced water. Not sure if I'd pick it up again, it may be worth a dollar but that's about it for me. Try it though, you might like it if you like light bodied beers.
