a clear, dark, amber beer with a light tan head that left only a band of lacing. The aroma is pumpkin pie spice that is heavy on the cinnamon and clove with a sweet caramel maltiness. The beer tastes sweet and spicy with a lot of cinnamon and clove. The yeast brings a mild pie crust taste and the beer finishes sweet and slightly bitter. Pretty good pumpkin beer for sure.

Had on tap a few days back at Potent Potables.Poured into a standard pint glass a deep burnt orange with nicely formed one finger off white head,I liked the deep color and nice head to this beer.Aromas of pumpkin pie spice,alot of nutmeg and clove with underlying cinnamon,smelled sweet but it wasn't overly sweet tasting.Spiced on the palate with a fair amount of nutmeg and clove,a lightly drying finish keeps the sweetness in check...just enough.You have to like nutmeg to really like this beer and I do somewhat so I enjoyed it.One of the better new pumpkin beers I have tried this season.

I'm trying this at the house rented by my Bestie in Hilton Head. It poured a clear amber with no head and no lace. The scent had hints of spice and pumpkin. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink for a pumpkin ale. The mouthfeel was medium in body with good carbonation. Overall it's a solid beer.

Had this one at the source! Served from tap into a NoDa shaker. Poured a deep red-orange with a half finger off-white head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained excellent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, pumpkin, clove, coriander, spices, and subtle cinnamon. The flavor was of sweet malt, spice, cinnamon, clove, pumpkin, and coriander. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a good brew. I usually am not a big fan of pumpkin beers if I am honest. However the spice balance on this one was quite pleasant. The cinnamon note going on was really nice and not overly spicy as some can be that I’ve had in the past. This fact made it quite easy to drink and rather enjoyable. Really nicely done brew for the style. Tick.

I am not the biggest pumpkin beer fan but received this as a gift in a mix pack. I think because of the way this style is way too over-spiced with nutmeg and cinnamon (shipyard pumpkinhead comes to mind). But this one I really enjoyed. This gift opened my mind to the style again.
