12oz bottle courtesy of Drake. deep amber in color. nice aroma of all the scents you’d associate with a pumpkin brew; pumpkin, clove, nutmeg & allspice. taste follows the aroma to the "T", all while staying well balanced. this is a very tasty beer!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from the latest local swap - thanks! Pours a really nead looking ruby-hazel-orange, crystal clear with a small beige head that dissipates to a ring that laces well. Aroma is pumpkin spices, clove, allspice, cinnamon, caramel. Flavor is much the same, very spice forward, quite sweet on a caramel malt backbone. Not really any bitterness although there is a zestiness to the finish. Too sweet for me, but not bad for what it is.

Bottle. Tastes exactly like the deScription, pumpkin pie in a bottle. Smells nice with fall spices and not overdone in a sweet way. Pretty good for someone who doesn’t like many pumpkin ales.

Draft at Hell’s Kitchen, Norfolk, VA. Clear medium orange body, no head. Nose of nutmeg. Sweet, soft body with lots of allspice and nutmeg. Somewhat flat, but well-balanced and the sweetness is short-lived and not syrupy.
