Served in a 6 ounce sampler glass.Was a nice golden color with a solid head, quite a bit of carbonation.

Smell wasn't much at all, couldn't really detect anything of note.

This actually tasted better than I expected. I am not a fan of the taste of pumpkin, but it added a nice sweetness to this beer. I found it to be on the hoppy side, I think the pumpkin added some nice sweetness and spice to it.

Mouthfeel was solid, the carbonation helped make this beer's presence known.

This one is a good one for fans of hops. Was a nice change of pace, I ended up enjoying this one more than I expected to.
