look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

12oz bottle poured into a nonic pint glass.

A: Cloudy orange brown with a one finger toffee head. Decent retention and lacing.

S: Pumpkin as well as brown sugar and molasses. Spices like nutmeg and cinnamon.

T: Lots of pumpkin and brown sugar. Nutmeg cinnamon, lots of cloves.

M: Slightly creamy, lots of carbonation, and the body is a bit to watery.

O: Solid pumpkin beer one I will revisit. If the Body was thicker this would be a winner for sure.

A- Poured out of the 12oz bottle into a chalice with a slightly hazy caramel amber hue. Creamy white cap forms to about half a finger with decent retention and dies down to a small frothy ring. Spotty lacing here and there.

S- Spicy pumpkin pie mix off the top with a fair deal of caramel and toasted malts to support it. Notes of cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon and some pumpkin squash feel.

T- First and foremost is the pumpkin pie spice mix with a lot of ginger followed by clove, nutmeg and allspice. Base brew has nice fresh cracked grains, slight caramel and toasted nutty malts. This certainly tastes like a pumpkin pie overall.

MF- Highly carbonated lighter end body. Somewhat creamy and fizzy texture which is certainly appropriate in this type of brew. Finishes with slight spicy bitterness on the palate.

One of the spicier pumpkin brews that I actually enjoy quite a bit. The ginger spice feel is super fresh and there is a nice maltiness and some pumpkin to support those spices.
