A- Love the golden pumpkin like color of the beer. and has some of the bes and has some of the best lacng I've seen on any beer. Just a touch of cloudiness to it.
S- This is all pumpkin. I could smell it wafting from the glass from two feet away. Huge natural pumpkin smell. Not a ton of spice like most pumpkin beers. Just straight pumpkin. Maybe just a bit of molasses too.
T- again this is dominated by a smooth strong pumpkin flavor with just a hint of spice and a bit of caramel. Bit of mineral in the finish and aftertaste. Not to bad.
M- creamy and smooth. Just a medium body. Nothing crazy. imple and well rounded.
O- what I like the most about this is it stays true to the style of the beer. When it says pumpkin, that is what I want to taste. It's not masked up with pie spices and fake flavors. This one is as pumpkin as it gets.
