I am a fan of seasonal ales (specifically pumpkin's) and this definitely rates as one on my favorites. It has a very assertive yet balanced taste.

Poured a nice amber color; great pumpkin, nutmeg and cinnamon aromas; the taste was smooth, balanced and had a clean if slightly biting finish; overall a very nice seasonal beer - great for fall/winter.

A- pours a slightly hazy orangish-brown with a long lasting frothy white head and some good lacing down the side

S- cinnamon and nutmeg, pumpkin pie, floral, earthy, and minty

T-raw pumpkin with some nutty yeast, grainy malt, and a bit if cinnamon. A bit muted for my preference.

M- medium body with low carbonation, creamy and velvety mouthfeel and finish. Probably the creamiest pumpkin ale that I've had. I like it.

O- the look and mouthfeel of this one were great, I just wish the flavors would have been a little more pronounced.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: thin head on a cloudy copper body with nice lacing.

S: toasted malts, pumpkin, hint of caramel with brown sugar and nutmeg.

T: nice pumpkin, spices, yam and brown sugar flavors. typical pumpkin beer but better transition between flavors. not liking the aftertaste though.

M: medium body and moderate carbonation. the aftertaste is fairly oily and a little dry.

Overall: More well rounded and complex than others even for the style which is usually straight up pumpkin which comes across as too sour.

A - Poured with a small head of off white foam on top of a lightly hazy, copper colore body. The foam settles quickly and leaves decent lace on the glass.

S - A distinct, vegetal pumpkin note with all the standard spices and some caramel malt character in the background.

T - Allspice and clove up front with some nutty malt in the middle. Finishes with cinnamon, nutmeg, and toffee as well as a touch of hop character for balance.

M - Medium thick body, moderate carbonation, and a balanced finish.

D - Well done overall with a good balanced of spices and malt and a finish that is both dry enough to avoid becming cloying, but also malty enough to keep the spices from seeming harsh. This also has the odd distinction of being perhaps the only pumpkin beer that have had that smelled like raw pumpkin, which isn't as unpleasant as it sounds.
