From 10/06/12 notes.

a - Pours a deep orange amber color with one inch of off white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of spice, pepper, nutmeg, pumpkin, bread, grains, and wheat. Lots of spice, and light on the pumpkin. Pretty average.

t - Tastes of spice, cloves, pepper, nutmeg, cinnamon, pumkin, bread, grains, dough, biscuit malts. A little more pumpkin than the nose, but still spicy.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Easy to drink and seems like a pretty low ABV beer.

o - Overall a pretty average pumpkin ale. Lots of spice to it and not enough pumpkin/gingerbread for me. Wouldn't seek it out again with out great options available everywhere, unless you really love pumpkin beers and are at the brewpub.
