This was a mild, subtle pumpkin ale that was good, but not much more than just good. A: Med copper orange with light carbonation S: Sweet malt with cinnamon, nutmeg and slight cloves. T: A mild pumpkin taste with a slight sourish finish that is not particuarly good. M: medium to thin mouthfeel D: Its not a particularly good beer and I might have 1 or 2, but no more. There are much better pumpkins out there esp. Dogfish Head.

I always look forward to the Pumpkin Ales, but I've been spoiled by Old Dominion and Dogfish Head.

The pour is the best thing about the beer. Beautiful, clear, orangy amber with a decent head. Head recedes quickly.

aroma is nutmeg and allspice with a bit of clove, but you have to try real real hard to smell it.

The taste...meh. A bit of a sour finish, there is little to no hoppiness, and the malty flavors aren't enough to carry the beer. Would actually like something a bit sweeter with this blend of spices.

The mouthfeel is ok, light carbonation, but it hits the tongue too much on the sides causing the sour feel.

Drinkability, I could maybe have 2 of these in a night.

Overall not impressed, I may grab one at a party, but I won't be buying another anytime soon.

The beer pours a warm burnt reddish brown, with a thin ring of head and an army of floaters suspended within the liquid.
Smells a bit old, slightly cardboardy, with a nice maltiness beneath. A touch of toasted malt, with mild, aged hopping. I wonder if it was hoppier when fresh.
Very british in taste, with an emphasis on malts and subtle downplayed hoppiness. A light biscuity malt flavor, with some toastiness. Not much in the way of esters or fruitiness. Hops are still present, but age may have deadened the flavor. Some bready yeastiness in the finish, with an old, cardboardy flavor in the aftertaste.
Not bad at all. I'd like to find this fresh, if they still make it.
