On tap at Joe Canals West Deptford.
Appearance: Clear amber body with a dense tan head.
Aroma: Cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. Just spice.
Taste: Clean malts, light spices. Rather bland but drinkable.
Palate: Medium bodied, moderately carbonated.
Overall: Not bad, very mild, but better than the overly spiced crud that’s everywhere.

Bottled. Poured medium orange with a short beige head. The aroma picked up sweet pumpkin meat and vanilla with nutmeg and ginger accents. The flavor found similar, picking up some complementary pumpkin tartness.. tasty stuff. Lighter-bodied with good balance.. very drinkable.
