This is somewhat like drinking pumpkin pie filling. It's just kind of odd on the palate from start to finish. The alcohol to me is well hidden, as this is easy to quaff. Pumpkin beers have never rated high on my desire list, but I would love to find a solid representative of the style as something to look forward to every October. DF Punkin' Ale is the closest to that go to that I've found.

pours a pale orange color, with a some foam that quickly dissipates into just some bubbles on the side of the glass. Very Fizzy. Pumpkin spice flavor on smell and taste. almost too much pumpkin spice on the flavor. Not really all that enjoyable in the taste department. Definitely there are MUCH better Pumpkin beers than this.
