Appearance is brown in color with copper edges. There was over a finger of off-white head that retained for some time. The nose includes pumpkin and spices, but not too strong on the spice. The pumpkin also comes through in the flavor profile along with some spices underneath. The finish is mildly bitter.

This offering is more full-bodied than most pumpkin ales. I enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone who likes this style.

This pours a medium brown color with a creamy, off-white head. The aroma is full of pumpkin and spice. The texture is much creamier then I would have expected. The mixture of pumpkin and spice is just right with a great finish. Finishes with a touch of lingering cinnamon. It still doesn’t rival the taste of Pumking, but it is still very good in it’s own way!
