A: Cloudy copper color with a red tint to it, about one finger of off white head at the top that leaves some slight lacing around the glass.

S: Nothing spectacular on the nose, some cinnamon, and nutmeg come through and some slight hint of spice on the tail end as well.

T: Taste like a regular pumpkin ale, with no spectacular notes coming through, kind of bland and taste more like an amber ale.

M: Light side, some slight carbonation.

O: Did not really enjoy this one, tasted mostly generic, nothing crazy about this beer and not a lot of flavors coming through.

Better than avg. pumpkin, but not by a lot. Hazy like most Long Trails. Slightly sweet - could be less so for my tastes - but not overspiced, which is a downfall of many pumpkins. Good, not great.
