Pours orange-brown with one inch head. Very tasty with lots of good flavors. Taste is pumpkin pie, cinnamon, clove, and slight creaminess. I will look for this again.

This 12 oz bottle was poured into a perfect pint glass and enjoyed at about 40 degrees.

Pours a murky orange brown with a fizzy off-white head which dissipates quickly without any lacing or retention to speak of.

Smell is of nutmeg, cinnamon, various spices, a little pumpkin but not too much.

Taste is of similar spice profile to the nose with cinnamon and nutmeg, not really pumpkin forward but I prefer this subtlety. Mildly bitter, mild sweetness, bready finish with hints of spices and pumpkin on the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is light, crisp, a little watery, smooth, with a somewhat dry finish.

Overall, I found this to be a good representation of the style, and while I'm not a big fan of pumpkin beers in general, I found this to be more about the spices which was much more appealing. Would drink it again.
