Very light, almost Vienna-ish with a touch of amber/orange to it, with a thick (if short) white head. Decent amount of carbonation. Smell is nice...you get a lot more true pumpkin than you do on many, though the typical spicing is there, too. One thing you do NOT get is any hint of the 8.6% ABV it carries. On the first sip, though, alcohol is the very first thing I taste. The other flavors come in to "fill up the tub," but the alcohol is the base of it. The caramel malt is very strong, and there is a bit of hop bitterness that does play nicely with the alcohol. Mouthfeel is interesting; you get that gassy alcohol-ness making it smooth in spite of its full body. Overall, a little lighter of a beer than I'm looking for in this style.
