Draught @ Brewpub: This one pours a crystal clear orange tinged amber color. There was almost no white head on it, and it left no lacing. The aroma is nice. Get a good whiff of pumpkin pie spice (cinnamon and nutmeg), but it is not overpowering. Some caramel malts also. The taste is good. Minimal amount of the caramel sweetness, some spice (not overdone). Very smooth. A nice beer.

on tap at the brewpub in Green Bay. pours a rich amber color with two fingers of foamy, off white head with moderate lacings and good retention.

aroma is lightly sour with notes of caramel and pale malts. lightly sweet in character with an ephemeral profile in the nose.

taste follows the aroma closely, with a light sourness still present and a base of pumpkin spice mixed in with caramel malts and a mildly hoppy finish. the pumpkin is mixed in nicely with the malts, but the sour tinge damages the spiced and earthed notes that make pumpkin ales so dinstinctive.

mouthfeel is medium bodied with a light effervescence and a mildly crisp finish. the sour character remains on the palate for some time.

drinkability is good. this is a smooth brew with just enough pumpkin to keep the brew honest. overall it is lightly sweet and mildly concentrated, with a nice profile. not a bad offering from titletown.
