A: Brown in color, very hazy, a small amount of head that disappears almost immediately.

S: Light pumpkin as well as pie aromas. Cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, and perhaps a touch of cider.

T: Slightly sweet, with pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices. Definitely getting a little bit of a cider thing in there. It pretty much tastes like fall.

M: Medium in body with very fine carbonation.

O: Overall it tastes like fall in a glass. Nice, perhaps a touch sweet.

Decent bit of hops for the style but works better than Smuttynose.

The aroma provides more pumpkin than the flavor profile. I prefer this, as I don't like overwhelming pumpkin flavor, but the overall base beer is a little too thin for me to really enjoy it

Appearance: Pours with a nice bubble show though the head doesn't amount to all that much; the liquid is hazy and amber; the head fades quickly, leaving a few spots of lace

Smell: Pumpkin pie spices (cinnamon, allspice, clove) and spicy yeast phenols; brown sugar, but not much pumpkin

Taste: Pies spices, yeast phenols and brown sugar comingle on the tastebuds; little pumpkin flavor, though; rather sweet through the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Interesting use of the spices but the overall sweetness and the lack of pumpkin flavor reduces the enjoyment

Thanks, larryi86, for the opportunity
