From the bottle, it pours a clear amber with a small head, dissipating rapidly to a ring. A bit of pumpkin in the nose. Taste is malty with a touch of pumpkin. Slight bitter aftertaste.

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a cloudy, orange color speckled with some yellow highlights, and a quarter of a finger of white head that quickly dissolved away into a thin lacing of foam that completely covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Not much in the aroma department, either that or I’m stuffed up. I get some faint notes of pumpkin, lemony citrus, honey, and fresh malts, like freshly baked French baguettes. However, I get next to nothing in the way of hops.

Taste: A lot of malt up front, followed by some good pumpkin flavors and a little nutmeg-y spice. I get some lemony citrus, a little sweetness, finished by some subtle hoppy bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied to slightly thin, with some good carbonation to tickle the taste buds. With an ABV of 7.0%, there is just the slightest hint of alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is a pretty good beer. Nothing special, but not bad either. Good and tasty for what it is, but once finished, it’s pretty forgettable.

Very mediocre pumpkin ale. Pours a hazy orange color with almost no head and wispy strands of lacing. Faint aroma of pumpkin spices. Flavor is a little pumpkin and pumpkin spices, very mild...nothing stands out.

Mouthfeel is thin and flat. Very unimpressive. Most pumpkin ales out there are much better.
