Poured from a 12oz can into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep gold color, with a large off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains pumpkin, caramelized malts, some spice and a very faint touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out bready with a hearty but not too heavy malt character. Then some mildly sweet flavors of pumpkin, spices and caramel come in. The hops presence I mild and there isn’t much balance. The after-taste is slightly bready.

M: Crisp but not very smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: A little tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, mild kick, decent representation of style, this is not one of the better beers I’ve had in the style.

A very nice, approachable pumpkin ale. Pours a bright orange with an off white head. The smell is full of spice such as cinnamon and clove. The taste has a bit of pumpkin in the beginning and then and then a lot of spice. The flavor was refreshing and a little light, but it made for a very drinkable pumpkin ale that I can see drinking more than a few.
