Look: Light copper-orange: 1/2" of dissipating foam on top.

Nose: Definite spice and along with pumpkin-gourd in the nose.

Taste: Spice and the pumpkin come thru upfront along with a touch of sweetness; Not overwhelmingly so though. Not much bitterness to speak of.

Feel: Pretty non-descript. About what I'd expect for a lighter generic ale.

Overall: Actually not bad: Another that I think does a good job of being a solid ale that wraps some seasonal flavors into, without under or overwhelming the palate.

12oz brown bottle, sample from the brewery.

Just enough lace to look like a beer, slightly hazed tawny hue. Spiced pie filling & honey in the nose. Palate is a bit more dry compared to what I smelled, spices kick in with more play from the ginger and allspice. Some gourd and toasted malt in the middle but ends up being a bit thin.

More flavor that most of the mainstream pumpkin ales, middle of the pack at best though.

First sip reminded me of a fall candle. As I continued to drink, it began to taste like cinnamon candy. Interesting spices and not overpowering. Not fabulous, but worth a try.
