Poured from bottle into a tumbler glass. Hazy orange color with a creamy, tan, head about one finger thick. Smells of cinnamon, allspice, and cloves. Smooth, pumpkin flavors up front and cranberry at the finish. Medium body and finishes cleanly. Overall a very nice beer, certainly a nice take on the style.

Copper/orange with lots of bubbles rising. Half finger of head that actually stays around. Nice bit of lacing down the glass. Has a nice aroma with the cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice out front. These come out in the flavor on the back end. I don't think i would have guessed cranberry and lemon grass in the flavor but the beer does have a pleasant mild tartness to it. A little sticky up front and dry on the finish, carbonation is mild on the palate and the body is medium. Reminds me of the Fall and Halloween a little bit, so mission accomplished. Very mild and chuggable, overall.
