A- Orange/amber body with almost no head, just some white bubbles around the edges of the glass.

S- Pumpkin, oak, vanilla, some faint boozy sweetness.

T- Up front tastes like a malty pumpkin ale, but the finish is vanilla, sweet bourbon, with a dash of nutmeg.

M- High carbonation, medium bodied, good sipper.

O- A nice one-off change of pace pumpkin beer. Could use a little more balance, but was enjoyable.

Outstanding seasonal pumpkin ale. I have this in my top 5 of pumpkin ales. Not quite as good as the top 2 but not far from it and really available. Really good on draft. Excellent blend of spices, aromas and flavors. Tastes like pumpkin pie the way these beers should taste. Not overly sweet. Like a light pumpkin pie. Very much enjoyed it.
