poured into my snifter

A- it is a clear orange with a nice head that goes away but sticks to the sides of the class. you can see a lot of carbonation coming from this beer.

S- Pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, a lot of roast and spicy too it. It pretty much smalls like a fresh pumpkin pie.

T/M- You get a lot of pumpkin up front then the nutmeg and cinnamon come in. Then you get the roast with nice hop bitterness to end it.

O- This is a beer I buy every year once it is released and it is great every time.

Wow.
Appearance- expected something darker and mor murky. Bright, no head whatsoever.
Smell- amazing. Really smells like you just opened a tin of canned pumpkin.
Not just everyone's fall back of making a beer that smells like pumpkin pie spice
Taste- fairly simple but not uncomplex. Slight spice,middle malt, and a hang of pumpkin baby food (in a good way)
Mouf- nice, easy
Drinkability- better than most for its style. One of my favorites
