First pumpkin ale I drank in my life.
Has a nice reddish dark amber color and a whitey foam that leaves a tiny lace.
Nice smell, sweet with strong pumpkin notes, just like a pumpkin sweet.
Taste is more complex, malty and a bit yeasty, I could feel some plum notes too.
Carbonation and body are at great level and there'sa nice bitter end.
The end of the bottle is turbid, easier to feel malts and yeast.. and the beer gets uglier too.

Bottle pour at the bottle share held at Chloe's inside Golden Road Brewing in Los Angeles, CA.

Best before 4/2014.

Pours a murky honey orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, fruit, earth, and slightly sour aromas. Taste is much the same with fruit and slight cardboard flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of earthy bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a very earthy presence but I am not really picking up any pumpkin or cinnamon on this one.
