Bomber poured into tulip glass.

This is my first Pumpkin beer, so I don't have anything to compare it with.

Appearance is deep golden orange. Clear with small, off white head.

Smell is pumpkin up front, followed by clove and very slight alcohol.

The first thing I taste is cloves, it's overpowering. I also pick up pumpkin and nutmeg, with a slightly bitter aftertaste.

Feels medium bodies and goes down smooth.

Overall not a big fan of this one. The spices were too dominating, I would have enjoyed this more if not for that.

So smooth and flavorful. Not at all too sweet. A whole bottle does whack you pretty good. But it's delicious, with the right feel and burst of spices. I think it's as good in the bottle as it is fresh on tap. But I can't wait to see how it does after aging a couple more months. So solid and consistent. Goes great with food or as desert.
