Poured and served into a pint glass with deep amberish color, small white head and carbonation seemed to be good. Nose is cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and small dash of pumpkin. Taste is big malt sweetness and ready with nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon and a little pumpkin. Mouthfeel is creamy but still reaching for the pumpkin here. Drinkable yes, mislead, perhaps. While it had pumpkin notes the beer was pretty weak on the pumpkin taste and I actually would call this a Nutmeg Ale vs a Pumpkin Ale.
