Let me start by saying I'm. Huge pumpkin fan coming from the angle that pumking is the true king in this style.

Color: orange hue that screams of fall and pumpkin. Nice half inch head after pour that quickly disappears
Smell: a pumpkin smell straight at the top with some cinnamon on the back end
Taste: this is where it falls to southern tier. You get a blast of pumpkin but it's quickly masked by the 9% abv. It leaves you wanting more pumpkin in the flavor and for the thought of....."i wish it were pumking"

If I had this first I would probably be raving more but I'll state it as such, this is a very solid representation of the style and a very good beer for pumpkin lovers but it's not the best available. You won't be dissapointed however if you purchase.

Quick review - quite good, a bit boozy, little sweet for my taste, but a really excellent example of the style. I happen to prefer the Weyerbacher which is a little more toned down.

A good beer for the style, but it allows the alcohol to overwhelm the other flavors.
