Poured into a pint glass it has a slight beige foamy quarter inch head with a hazy bright orange body. Smell of pumpkin, peach, nutmeg, clove, cinnamon, and vanilla. Taste is lots of peach, some pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla, and some caramel. Mouth feel is smooth and full with a moderate body and a nice moderate carbonation. A extremely good pumpkin ale with a great peach flavor, aging it brought out a nice bit of caramel and helped even out the peach flavor. Definitely one of my favorite pumpkin ales.

A - Pours a dark amber with a large three-finger off-white head. The head lingers to a thin ring leaving light soapy lacing.

S - Aroma is cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and pumpkin.

T - The flavor is nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon, and pumpkin with some light peach in the finish.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. The mouthfeel is smooth with a dry finish.

O - This is a solid Pumpkn Ale. The peach is subtle and some interesting flavor to the finish. Definetly glad I tried this.

Look is like most pumpkin ales
Smell pumpkin, peach, pie spices
Taste this is like their screaming pumpkin minus the heavy spice and let me say this is one of the best pumpkin beers I've ever had, pumpkin pie with peach on the
Backend but not a peach bomb.
Feel light in the mouth like a good pumpkin beer should be
Overall I wish this was not a limited release its darn tasty.

Made to poke fun back at a large, mega-brewer after their Super Bowl commercial dissing craft beers - in an ironic, and perhaps purposeful, twist this tastes like something the mega-brewer would make!

Here’s an article discussing the conception of the beer with useful background info:

A great PR move, and novelty brew, but I’ll stick with Griffin Claw’s Bourbon Imperial Pumpkin (& their other beers).
