12oz bottle to Sam Adams Perfect Pint.

A: Dark golden with hints of mahogany...absolutely no head or lace as it fizzled quickly away...not a good start.

S: Pumpkin and generic spices...some toasted grains, bready malt...hint of vanilla, sweetness.

T: Underlying pumpkin character throughout, authentic enough. Slight citrus character in some spice undertones...allspice maybe? Touch of vanilla character again, sweetness.

MF: Medium bodied, but thinner than I expected.

O: Not great. Kinda one-note.
