look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: Light, golden-orange hue, like apple juice. A solid finger of off-white foam that fades to leave scant lacing.

S: Fresh-baked bread. Vanilla. Mild cinnamon. Fruity esters far in the background.

T: Mild, sweet malt is first, followed closely by a slightly tart, yet smooth, pumpkin flavor. Buttery diacetyl makes a brief appearance. The spices kick in fairly late, then meld with bitter hops in the finish.

M: Thin, lightly carbonated, but very smooth. The alcohol is barely noticeable despite the ABV.

O: Not potent, but very drinkable. Smooth, creamy, sweet, and spicy. I could definitely enjoy another.
