Pours an orange'ish copper with medium carbonation. Aroma is pumpkin spice. Fairly drinkable for a pumpkin beer and I appreciate the spicing being in balance and you're not assaulted with nutmeg and clove like some other pumpkin beer. Definitely tilts more towards pumpkin spice than pumpkin. Not my favorite example of the style (I prefer a 2/3's pumpkin, 1/3 pumpkin spice balance). Overall a solid pumpkin beer that's drinkable but maybe not best suited to a tallboy can.

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.

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.

L - dark amber. Course bubbly head.

S - allspice, cinnamon, and of course pumpkin! Slight clove as well.

T - more of the same aroma. Pumpkin seeds. Caramel.

F - medium body. Slightly prickly carb.

O - decent pumpkin beer. Not overly sweet and had some slight hop bite. Drinkable.

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.
