Brownish orange in color and not much light will seep through this brew. There's a fingernail of beige around the rim and covering about half of the top. That aroma is very dialed in with cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, and nutmeg. I taste a heavy, yet somehow balanced mélange of spices. Pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, and nutmeg are the dominant players. The body is moderately carbonated and lightly sticky.

Almost too much pumpkin taste. It literally is like drinking a pumpkin pie. I can handle some amount of pumpkin, but this was borderline ridiculous. Just too overpowering.

Bets pumpkin beer I've ever had the privilege of drinking. It's liquid pumpkin pie, whereby the main taste is pumpkin, with the spices as a side note. Typically the spice dominates the beer and ruins it, this one is spot on!
