Pours a clear & deep orange amber with dusty particulates & no effervesce rising. The pour produces 2+ fingers of short-lived off-white head which diminishes to a minor surface cap & collar leaving motes & strings of lace as it recedes. Aroma is caramel malt, pie crust, pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon & other spices. Taste is pumpkin, caramel, Graham cracker, roasted pecans & pie dough with nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, cloves & alcohol spice. Alcohol is prominent. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy bodied with medium carbonation, smooth, wet & tongue coating but with a nice lively spice. My favorite pumpkin ale. Very close to liquid pumpkin pie with an alcohol kick!

Poured medium Amber ,head was white prob almost inch to a finger, aroma was hint of pumpkin and some cinnamon but not much. Little disappointed by the lack of nose. Taste was bold burnt buttery pumpkin and crust. Unique and surprising. Hops were present in the backround towards the finish. Nice warming beer on windy fall night.

Appearance:
Amber-gold color, clear. Medium carbonation rising. Thick bright-white head.

Aroma:
Baked pumpkin pie, pie crust, cinnamon, nutmeg, hint of vanilla.

Taste/Finish/Body:
Baked pumpkin, pie crust, cinnamon, nutmeg, a little vanilla and butter. Hop bitterness is very mild, just a bit spicy-floral, it's almost hard to detect. Finish is semi-sweet, a little dry. Medium bodied, slight creamy, smooth, easy drinking, just a little alcohol warmth.

Overall:
This is a perfect example of a pumpkin ale.

Amber appearance with slight white head. Very very mild aroma. Taste is a significant nutmeg with a minimal pumpkin taste. Very artificially tasting pumpkin beer
