Aroma is fairly grainy until the nutmeg and clove kick in, giving a perception of sweetness.

Flavor is slightly sweet throughout, with an upfront squash and nutmeg character that fades to a lightly tangy note and clove in the finish.

A: Pours a slightly hazy orange with a finger of cream-colored head that fades into a frothy ring with a little lacing.

S: Pumpkin spices with a bit of squashy pumpkin underneath along with light aromas of caramel and vanilla.

T: Pumpkin spices here as well but with a nice undercurrent of actual pumpkin along with vanilla and caramel malts.

M: Medium body and carbonation, this pumpkin ale just avoids being watery.

O: An enjoyable pumpkin ale, overall. It could use a bit more pumpkin and vanilla presence along with a creamier body, but is still quite nice.

The Orange and brown pumpkin colors really shine through as this Crystal clear ale is topped with a light layer of tightly knit foam.

The aromas are heavy on the cinnamon, with a light pumpkin spice and nutmeg.

The flavor is more to the pumpkin spice, lightly topped with cinnamon and nutmeg. There's very little malt or pumpkin flavor but it's spicy enough that it's good.

The feel is so light and almost lacking in carbonation, that it feels like water. Light on the tongue and slips down the palate with utter ease.

Copper colored with a fingernail of brilliant white on top. There's a serious amount of moderate sized sediment suspended within. Nose of pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, and nutmeg. The flavor is aggressively spiced with pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, and nutmeg. The mouth is moderately carbonated and there's a burn on the tongue from the heavy spicing.

Best before last week of January this year. :(

Poured into a pint glass. Nice hazy burnt orange color with a generous white head. Aroma full of pumpkin spice, nutmeg and cinnamon. Taste was similar, but not cloyingly sweet like some styles.Flavors were balanced. Nice dry finish. Overall a very good pumpkin ale.
