12 oz longneck poured into a pint glass, the beer is orange with amber highlights. There is a sticky beige head.

Great aroma of pumpkin pie spices, toffee and caramel malts.

This is by far one of the best tasting pumpkin beers. Point has managed to balance the spices & pumpkin flavors over a great base beer. It is not overly cloying or sweet but instead has remarkable balance.

The mouth is thickish and coating. Midlevel carbonation seems well calibrated to the beer.

I wish I had bought more than one four pack, a mistake I won't make next year. Well Done!
