This is an interesting beer that seems to change as you drink it. The color is a very cloudy tannish-orange. The head is almost non-existent. The first aroma that hits you immediately is a freshly baked pumpkin pie. After a few minutes, the aroma goes quite weak, but lingers ever so slightly. The first taste is of pumkin pie, then as you drink, spices emerge an then lastly a slightly bitter ending. Overall, a decent beer and one that goes through a lot of changes as it is consumed.

Pours a cloudy orange color in a 16oz pub glass with a most impressive head. I had to let it dissipate a couple of times before I could finish pouring the beer into the glass.

Smell is pumpkin, fruity, malty, with a faint smell of pumpkin pie spice.

Taste the pumpkin pie spice right away that gives way to a bitter, dry finish with a faint pumpkin aftertaste.

Mouth feel is velvety smooth.

I like it and would be willing to give it another try especially in the fall of the year. It would be a great beer to drink watching college football on Saturday afternoons.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a rich golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of pumpkin pie, pretty tasty. Taste is spices up front, and more spices. Very little pumpkin. Kind of an unusual after taste as well. Not terrible, but not good. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall this is an ok beer, but nothing special.
