Serving style : 12 oz glass bottle, poured for appearance

Appearance (3.5) : Honey brown in color, foamy and sudsy white two finger head that recedes rapidly. Lacing remains after it recedes. Funky break up of the foam on the top after it's gone - looks like mold and is pretty unappealing.

Smell (3) : Pumpkin spice, pumpkin pie, nutmeg, clean water. Faint fresh window glass and chemical.

Taste (3) : Heavy on the pumpkin spice, a very warm-feeling and cozy tasting beer. I can feel the chill of autumn and even imagine snow outside. Cilantro, a faint bit of fresh carrot, some honey, barley, and malts. Nutmeg and allspice. Some cloves. A very spicy beer, if you like spice. Slight pumpkin-bitter finish. Metallic pumpkin as it warms. It's just got this certain feel to it, I can't put my finger on. It makes you relive memories.

Mouthfeel (3.5) : Up front carbonation gives way to a smooth, buttercreme finish.

Overall (3.13) : This was a nice beer. I would probably buy it again but in winter time. For some strange reason I'm getting this feeling of holding a girl for the first time on one of the first chilly nights of autumn. For a beer to recreate that is simply awesome. The taste is spicy and bland, but there's something there that's telling my brain that this is a good brew. I recommend it.

Appearance - Medium amber. Appears pretty clear. Thin, white, quickly dissipating head.

Smell - Pumpkin and spice, mainly cloves and nutmeg.

Taste - Sweet, spicy and pumpkin-y. Spicy flavor also tends to the nutmeg and cloves. Thin and somewhat cloying.

From twelve ounce bottle freshness dated to December 22 2014.
Spiced aroma. Pours bright copper orange with full white head. Slight lacing of glass. Taste is mild lightly spiced, hint of caramel. No hops, no bitterness. Refreshing, but could use more pumpkin in the mash.
