look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Burnt orange with an inch of khaki head, tiny bubbles near the top, no noted lacing.

Aroma is of spiced pumpkin,straight up.

Taste is pleasant and similar to the nose, but not exceptionally complex.

Mouthfeel is light to medium, medium level of carbonation tickles the tongue just a bit.

Okay, this is a nicely flavored pumpkin ale, but after enjoying a Williamsburg Alewerks pumpkin ale, I feel I may have been permanently spoiled to what the rest of the brewers are attempting to achieve with a fuller, more pronounced spectrum of spices. Worth trying and an enjoyable brew by all means.

Snagged a single for $3.50 into a pint glass
A - Pour is kind of disgusting. Hazy orange amber with a tone of floaties and just a 1/4 inch of head that pulls back to practically nothing.
S - Smell is rather sweet, good spices, and a nice vegital note.
T - Pretty good pumpkin ale mostly getting bitter pumpkin mixed with nutmeg with not much sweet notes. Not terrible but I had better.
M - On par light to medium body. Wish it was sweeter or smoother.

Overall not the worst pumpkin beer but not one to seek out especially for a high singles price.
