12 oz bottle thanks Jimmie. Poured a slightly hazy deep amber/orangey with an average sized foamy light beige head. Aroma is pumkin, spice, green leafy veggies, dry caramel and crusts. Medium bodied with tight bubbly carbonation and an almost milky mouthfeel. Flavor is grain, toast, light pie spices. Meh not loving this one.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance was clear orange red gold with creamy diminishing off white 1 finger head, no lace. Aromas are simple sweet amber & pale malts then spices,hints of pumpkin. Taste are sweet malt bacbone upfrount that gives way to spices of all spice, nutmeg, cim, clove and the slight pumpkin aftertaste. Palate was smooth creamy CO2 with light-meduim body, then average length spicey finish. Good effort, alittle lite for me...

Pours a bright orange with a half finger head that quickly disappears. Pumpkin and marzen-like caramel malts in the aroma. Pumpkin on the palate as well, with biscuity malt in the finish. I don’t get the spices they mention. Big difference between this pumpkin ale and the imperial pumpkin ales - much thinner mouth-feel and less overwhelming sweetness.

Draft @ the Brewery. At the baseline, this is a malty and spicy ale with a smooth mouthfeel. The pumpkin flavor is there, but not obnoxious and sweet. Overall, I don’t like pumpkin beer, but this one isn’t that bad.
