A: pours a slightly hazy orange with a finger of white head that fades into a frothy ring with a little lacing.

S: sweet, squashy pumpkin aromas dominate with pumpkin pie spices and notes of caramel apples and vanilla.

T: pumpkin pie spices, sweet breads, squashy pumpkin pie, vanilla, a slightly boozy finish.

M: medium body with lowish carbonation, this beer is nicely creamy.

O: a great pumpkin ale overall. Definitely one of the best I've had.

The beer appears a radiant orange hue with a small head that rapidly fades to nil. The aroma offers cinnamon, pumpkin pie, brown sugar. Sweet and definitely true to style. Lots of brown sugar and cinnamon character. Thin body with low carbonation. Alcohol content well hidden. A tasty beer, though a little goes a long way. A good beer to share a few ways.
