Over all in my opinion a fantastic beer. I am a very big fan of pumpkin beers and in my opinion this one beats all others. It was a nice amber color with a white head. I have never tried this beer on tap only in the bottle but I would recommend it to any pumpkin beer lover.

A: orange, slightly hazy

S: a pumpkin pie

T: a pumpkin pie and a nondescript beer

M: carbonated, unrestrained granulated sweetness, greasy finish

O: I don't understand why people look forward to the novelty of drinking the simulacrum of a seasonal dish rather than eating the real thing. I suspect having 9 months to forget how regrettable it actually is has something to do with it, but also the willingness of folks to buy into the idea of a beer representing picturesque pumpkin pickings and redolent autumnal vistas that it can't possibly deliver on shouldn't be discounted either.
