Poured gently from a tall can into a snifter glass, forming a couple fingers of frothy light tan head. Hazy dark orange color, with a bit of lacing after the head faded. Smell is slightly sweet pumpkin and some spices. Taste follows, with a good pumpkin flavor and balanced spices, with a little bit of sweetness. Not quite medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Impressive pumpkin ale from a local brewery, definitely on my must have list for next year, glad I committed to a 4 pack.

On tap at brewery:
A clear medium copper, there’s a surprising amount of froth that has accumulated atop the plastic cup’s contents from a headless “boss pour”. The plastic held a few spots of that head, but not much.

Nose was nicely earthy with spices evident but not overpowering. I also get a near bakers chocolate note from somewhere. Eventually it comes to me as a crusty pumpkin bread.

Taste is that of a spicy amber ale. There’s a sweetness from the residual malt sugars, and earthy bitterness coupled with earthy-leaning pumpkin spices.

This beer is a subtle spiced pumpkin beer. The spices didn’t take control of the beer and I didn’t get the tang of pumpkin, But there seems to be enough of both to qualify for the style. The fact that it has a solid, balanced amber ale base works for me as well.
