Grabbed at the brewery this afternoon and poured cold to a sun king can shaped glass a cloudy, near opaque, honey'd pumpkin copper with a 1/2 finger foamy tan head with nice retention and a bit of spotty lace.

Great bug aroma of nutmeg, cinnamon, and indeed - pumpkin pie.

Light bodied, medium carbonation, big sweet malt, spice, cinnamon, hearty pie crust.

Toothy, super drinkable.

This one pours a medium bodied dark copper in color with only a slight lacing around the glass. The nose is big and balanced. There is pumpkin pie sweetness, nutmeg, cinnamon, and ginger. Everything is very well integrated. The flavors too, work very well together. It has the sweet pumpkin pie characteristic without being too sweet. The nutmeg and cinnamon are both in their perfect quantities. It leaves behind a trace of graham cracker crust in the aftertaste. It drinks medium in body and leaves a nice amount of creamy pumpkin and spice in the resonating aftertaste. This one is overly drinkable as far as pumpkins go. I'm not sure the abv on this one but I would guess 6.0% or so. This one is definitely worth a try. The locals go crazy for this beer and now I see why. It's top notch.
