Poured on draft at local bottle shop

A: Clear light golden brown with 1-2 finger white head. Decent retention and lacing.

S: Cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin pie spice.

T: Pumpkin pie but not overly sweet. All of the spices you would expect with cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and ginger with plenty of pumpkin.

M: Medium to light body with average carbonation.

O: Very nice light pumpkin beer. This style is normally hit or miss with me and this is a hit.

I snapped this up at the liquor store yesterday. First pumpkin beer of the season! I'm looking forward to a few weeks from now, when there will be about a dozen different kinds for me to try.

Pours a cloudy brown. Aroma of wet pumpkin plus pumpkin pie spices. Taste is pumpkin pie in a bottle. No pumpkin beer I've tried before tasted this much like pumpkin pie. Very nice!
