Hands down, my favorite Pumpkin Ale. This beer is pumpkin pie in a glass, and it smells that way too.

It pours with a dark, amber color and just fills the air with the scents of pumpkin, nutmeg and other wonderful spices. I could smell this all day long and be happy! The aroma leads to you expecting a taste that is similar and the taste doesn't disappoint. Very good flavor of pumpkin, nutmeg and spices....simply delicious. As drinkable as this beer is, it tends to be a little heavy for me. Getting through a 22 oz bottle often leaves me feeling like I just had a decent sized meal.

This is a must try during the autumn months. It's one of my go to's.

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.
