I like the robust brown of this pumpkin ale as it reminds me of a myriad of fall colors. The head, though, was fizzy and fleeting and though massed quickly it was gone suddenly.

The scent is earthy pumpkin, gourd like, with some hints of spice.

The taste is a replicant of those same ingredients as earthy gourdy pumpkin are mixed with touches of nutmeg an pumpkin spice. It reminds me of Schlafly's pumpkin but toned down a lot. Slight watery taste and texture move across the tongue at the end of the sip.

Overall, it's a clean, tasty pumpkin beer with need of some heartier characteristics.
