12oz. can poured into a snifter.

(A)- Pours a hazed orange color. Minimal white froth.

(S)- Just an awesome combo of spice and vanilla on the nose. Reminds me of pumpkin graham crackers.

(T)- Very similar to the smell. Awesome spice with graham cracker and vanilla pumpkin, just not as rich and inviting as the smell was; a bit toned down.

(M)- The carbonation level is good, but it is really quite thin in mouthfeel. Great spiced flavors and pumpkin, but just way too thin for the style.

(O)- An absolutely awesome pumpkin beer that could be one of the best if they just made this a bit thicker; it would really drive this one home. As it stands, its just a bit watery feel-wise for me.

Appears copper orange in the body with a cream khaki head flowing thick, unexpected spice comes up and hits me in the face. Pumpkin spice including the clove, vanilla, and nutmeg notes usually only found in a pumpkin pie. Flavor is straight spice minimal malts from the base beer this relies heavily on the spice additions minimal hints of gourd that may or may not have been there for the brewing process. Body is medium the carbonation is flowing thick in this beer, I'm actually amazed by the pumpkin and spice combo compared to other standard abv versions I'm getting a fuller bodied creamy carbonation pretty solid but still not something I would seek out.

Appearance - red, orange, caramel color with a inch tall head

Smell - I get a bunch ginger bread and nutmeg

Taste - not as spicy as I thought it would be.

Mouthfeel - nice and smooth and a bunch of carbonation

Overall - nice fun beer. Hopefully it opens up a bunch when it warms up
