Aroma has some bread and pumpkin notes, pours a golden amber hue with a minimal head. Taste is warm and malty with a hint of pumpkin and allspice. Not too sweet, and the pumpkin is a nice addition, not overpowering. It has a light body that makes it very drinkable.

kramer (5828) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear copper body under a small fizzy off-white head that faded quickly to a thin ring. The nose is rather spicy with some cinnamon, nutmeg, just a little pumpkin. Smells like its going to be a bit sweet, a fairly heavy caramel note. The flavor is just about as spicy, so much so that it burns the tongue with the cinnamon. Its tempered a bit by the sweetness in the middle, but the finish really plays up the spice. Medium bodied and a bit clingy with fizzy carbonation. Meh, its about on par with most middle of the road pumpkin beers.
