Pours a hazy amber with a small to medium head. Lacing as the beer goes down. Spices tickle the nose. Beer flows over the tongue with a light tang of spice and pumpkin, The mouthfeel is pleasant. Sessionable.

12 ounce bottle served in a pint glass.

Pours a gorgeous medium caramel color with a 1 finger, off white head.

Very little aroma, but smells of spices , pumpkin and biscuit.

Taste is subtle. The spices are good, not overpowering as with some pumpkin beers. But it's lacking something... Not sure what.


Decent, but there are better ones.
