Appearance: clear copper, fine beige head
Aroma: big pumpkin spice aroma, lots of cinnamon and nutmeg but not too much of either
Flavor: sweet caramel malt flavor, plenty of cinnamon but tempered by the sweetness, hint of pumpkin, other spices round it out
Overall: a lot bigger and more assertive on the spices than the original, now it just needs more pumpkin

12 ounce bottle from Beer Run. Pours a clear copper color with a medium sized fizzy tan head. Average head retention. Aroma of vibrant spices including ginger, some citrus, pumpkin and a mild glue note. The taste is earth, pumpkin, cinnamon, ginger, doughy malts and a tart finish. Medium bodied. Nice beer.

Bottle:   Amberish, a bit dirty, fine sediment floats about, thin sudsy white head, little lacing.   Nose of cinnamon and apple, some clove as well.   Spicy on the tongue, cinnamon, nutmeg, the aformentioned clove (a bit stronger here), with a touch of ginger (just a touch).   Body and mouthfeel are moderate... could stand to be a touch chewier tho.   Finishes very spicy, they linger long past the finish.   Mild to moderate sweetness, provides the right balance.   Nice example of a pumpkin ale, and what I look forward to during the Autumn months.

Bottle. Nice fall color, orange-amber, with a thin head. The pumpkin aroma gets to the olfactory glands as soon as the cap’s off the bottle. The beer drinks with a nice balanced delivery of some gourd, cinnamon and spice. Decent. (#5322, 11/10/2013)

Well, it smells nice, I’ll give it that. Actually, that’s a little too dismissive - It’s really not bad, in the context of pumpkin beer. There is some depth and real beer character, as well. Nice citrusy hop bite cuts through the heavy spices.
