Sampled yesterday on 3/8/15. Been almost 3 years since I had one of these. My friend bought a case (4-4packs) last September and gave me 3 bottles last Thursday. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and pouted in to a handled-glass stein.

This seasonal 'Pumpkin Ale' pours a hazy mahogany in color with about a half-finger off-white foamy head. A good amount of lacing is seen with each sip, close to ring-like even. Sediment is seen in the bottom of the bottle after the pour. The aroma is like a fresh pumpkin pie. Fantastic! Even more going on with the taste as their are the perfect amount of spices of cinnamon, nutmeg and even a hint of clove in the mix. Really smooth and goes down so easy. One of the BEST pumpkin ales on the market. Medium-bodied with perfect carbonation. Love this one but I do remember how good it was from back in 2012. This is as good as it gets!

Smells like Pumpkin Pie. One of the best pumpkin ales on the market. On the sweeter side.
