Pours a darker amber in color, with near-excellent clarity. Head is between off-white and darker
tan, leaves a thin film on top and some lacing as well.

BIG, spicy nose. Not too much in the way of pumpkin (squash or gourd), but a spicy-sweet, cola like nose it is. Average for what it is, and that's actually pretty good!

Lightly-sweet, with pale malt notes underneath the bigger blast of spices. Carbonation is good. Mouthfeel is a bit thin, but for this style that's okay -- I'd say it adds drinkability.

Very neutral yeast profile. Malt sweetness is on the lighter side, and not cloying (also a plus in my book). Finish is on the dry side.

Ultimately this is lighter-bodied than I was expecting, but less-sweet and much easier drinking as well, so it's definitely in the range of the 'pumpkin beers' that I appreciate. In other words, fairly basic.

If these spiced and 'pumpkin beers' don't bother you too much, this one is worth a try, and if you happen to like these "spice bombs", you might want to seek it out.

Hazy pumpkin pie coloration. Very little head. Smell is fall spices and potpourri, it's a pleasant smell but not something I would expect in a drink. Taste is nutmeg and a bit creamy. A bit thin

Had on tap at the Bryant Lake Bowl. It pours copper tinted amber under a 1” cream colored foam collar. Pumpkin spice aromas – clove, cinnamon, and ginger dominate the palate in a medium light bodied beer with medium carbonation. An easy drinker.

Beautiful color and short lived head.
Tasted tart. Hand written expiration date on bottom of 750ml bottle 1.15
Thin mouth feel. Not much pumpkin pie taste.
Again tart dry finish.
Would I buy again? No. Local brewery and I always look for something special.

Had this on tap least year and was blown away by how much it tasted like pumpkin pie. Just grabbed a 4 pack of cans and it's not as good as I remember. Smells like pumpkin pie, but taste is more of spices (cinnamon, nutmeg). It does look good in the glass, but a little thin on the feel.
