A - Pours an orange gold, little head to it, no lacing either.
S - Very, very metallic aroma, sweet candied malt, some spice, cinnamon, clove. No pumpkin though.
T - Tastes like sugar water, and thats about it, you get a little cinnamon and spice, no pumpkin though at all.
M - Watery, thin, unmemorable.
O - Garbage pumpkin beer, absolutely not worth buying/drinking/thinking about. This tastes like you're drinking cinnamon sugar water. I cant believe a brewer or brewery would feel good about releasing something this bad, there's absolutely no pumpkin flavor, aroma, or anything pumpkin in this beer at all. Poured this one out.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: orange and festive looking, thin white head, great clarity

Aroma: pumpkin, nutmeg, graham cracker, cinnamon, crisp

Taste: pumpkin flavor with finishing spice and a mildly crisp finish. A graham cracker like flavor in the malt which is nice, but not fantastic. Smooth and easy drinking

Mouthfeel: medium body, medium carbonation, crisp

Overall: A good pumpkin ale that has a little lighter bodied than others in the style, but also a little less flavor. Good for sessioning, but only because it is not overpowering or particularly alcoholic
