12 oz bottle of "Pumpkin Ale": shortened name but same 5.7% ABV. BB date notched March 2019.
Pours with a good looking dark copper body and a white head.
This is a good version of a pumpkin spice ale, with moderate spicing, a clean malty base and a smooth body.

Amber color. No head. Pumpkin flavor, not too sweet, and no harsh vegetal note on the finish like some get.

Poured into a becher pint glass, the appearance was a copper color with a finger's worth of white foamy head that slid off at a moderate pace. Slight lace ran here and there.
The aroma had some pumpkin/butternut squash sweetness running into some ginger and allspice. Light biscuits and honey and a touch of earthiness.
The flavor was moderately sweet through the pumpkin/butternut squash to honey and biscuit arrangement. Slight ginger in the aftertaste and a light dose of white pepper.
The mouthfeel was between light and medium bodied with a decent sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt appropriate. Not much of a finish, but seemed slightly sweet.
Overall, nothing really special as a pumpkin ale. They brew some better ones and there's better ones on the market.
