Can to nonic pint glass.
The appearance was a decent looking orange color with a slight murkiness to it. Quickly sliding finger's worth of white foamy head. No lace.
The aroma had some pumpkin sweetness (not necessarily flesh), more like puree with some ginger, allspice and nutmeg. Light brown sugar and some caramel malt base at the very end.
The flavor was moderately sweet trying to pull in the spices fairly nice. Aftertaste leaned towards the sweetness of the puree', less spices here.
The mouthfeel was between light and medium bodied. Spices don't impart much harshness along my tongue. Seemed to equal out with the malts and pumpkin sweetness - good balance. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt appropriate.
Overall, pretty good as a pumpkin ale, but not necessarily one I'd want to seek every Autumn. Glad I got the opportunity to try, though.

Can to pint glass. Aroma is atrocious. Sour ,moldy type smell. Almost urine. The good news is that it does not taste anywhere near as bad as it smells. Lots of fall spices early... nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon....and full pumpkin flavour later. Some alka seltzer like aftertaste. Feel is flat. Will save one for the 2015 Double Blind Pumpkin Tasting."

11/9...pours mostly clear orange copper with a scant amount of foam. Pumpkin nose, autumn spices. Light clean pumpkin lager like taste. Watery. Crisp finish. Some cinnamon.

L: No real head, small ring of lacing. Hazy brownish orange color.
S: Some pumpkin spice - mostly nutmeg - but not overpowering.
T: Nice! Pumpkin spice and actual pumpkin flavors come though with a little bit of bitterness.
F: Thin and smooth
