One of the worst pumpkin beers in my opinion... couldn't even finish it... tasted like pumpkin dish soap chemicals.

L -- Nice orange color with a basically no head to speak of. Looks still. Not very appealing
S -- The nose on this is unreal. Rice pudding, pumpkin pie spices, cream, pumpkin, malts
T -- Tastes fairly similar to how it smells, but there is a sharp boozy note to this brew that lowers its taste score considerably.
F -- Nice and robust
O -- Definitely not worth the $15 for a 4-pack. Dogfish Head Punkin Ale is a better bet
