I was very pleasantly surprised by this beer. My expectations weren't very high, but maybe that helpd lead to a great experience. I didn't sense any pumpkin until the finish. But when it did hit it was an almost perfect blend. Nothing too intense, which was a good thing. Lots of spice throughout. A very enjoyable winter beer.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The beer is a nicest clear amber color with a small off-white head. The flavor has a nice minimal pumpkin flavor that is equal to the aroma. An outstanding pumpkin ale.

Part of a fall sampler 12 pack. 3 bottles of four different beers. Poured in to a pint glass.

Pours a garnet red color, some chill haze, with a frothy egg shell white head.

Smell is sweet with a faint aroma of pumpkin spices.

Taste is also a sweet spice flavor. Pumpkin is there, but also cloves and allspice.

Mouthfeel is very smooth and creamy, but not cloying.

Overall a very nice pumpkin ale. I wouldn't care to have a lot of it, but it is very good.
