A: The beer pours a clear golden-amber color with a thin layer of off-white foam.
S: Not surprisingly, the pie spices are the dominant aroma. Quite a bit of cinnamon and nutmeg, plenty of all spice too. There’s a good sweet caramel note and some bread/pie crust going on too. Maybe a little alcohol.
T: Big bread and malt flavor and some toffee and caramel. Again, the pie spices are the main component here. Cinnamon, clove, all spice, and nutmeg are the primary ones. Strangely, I get some sweet apple type notes.
M: The body is medium with a moderate level of carbonation.
D: I think I preferred the bourbon barrel one, but this wasn’t bad either.

orange pour. This one has the normal pumpkin and spice aroma but also has more hops than most pumpkin beers. And flavor is much hoppier than most pumpkins. The minute you think the spice and pumpkin might be too much you get a really nice hit of hops. A really good twist on the normal pumpkin beer,.
