Interesting "kick" with the cranberries. Something different in a pumpkin beer.

Bottle poured into a New Belgium globe

A: Pours hazy reddish copper with a frothy tan head that settles to a light layer and leaves a little nice lacing.

S: First smell you get the spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, comes off like cinnamon toast, then with a little agitation you get some tart cranberry and maybe a hint of pumpkin.

T: Mild cranberry tartness up front, followed with spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, earthy pumpkin, and a little lightly toasted malt.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation

O: Cool twist on a pumpkin ale. Would be a nice refreshing brew while working up a sweat raking leaves.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear bright amber color with a small white head. The aroma is pumpkin, cranberries and spices. The taste is very similar to the nose. A solid pumpkin ale.
