On tap at Paw Paw Brewpub. 3000th rating, damn that’s a lot of beer. Hazy pumpkin amber with a thin white head and a few spots of lace. Aroma of mace, nutmeg, pumpkin and some grains. Taste is spicy with nutmeg, mace, malt, light pepper and sweet malt.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to my parents for bringing this growler on their trip from Michigan. Served in a snifter.
Pours a moderately-hazed bright orange color with a good off-white head and a bit of lacing on the way down. The nose carries a combination of scents that reminds me of Apple Jacks with some cinnamon and other fall and pumpkin spices. A bit of clove maybe. The flavor is along the same lines with more of a sweetness, and it’s lacking in some of the malt depth that I enjoy from pumpkin ales. Light-medium body with good carbonation. A nice introduction to a brewery I’ll hopefully get to know better during my next visit.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draught at the microbrewery in Paw Paw, Michigan. Pours a clear amber colored brew (not as dark at the Amber), with a creamy off-white head that quickly dissipates to a film top and spotty lacing. Aroma of caramel and nutmeg, some sweet pumpkin and a hint of clove. Taste is medium body, plenty of pumpkin/caramel malt with some short lived spice flavor. Finish is semi-sweet, mild spice aftertaste with nutmeg and a touch of clove.
