Tap. Pours clear buttery amber with a tiny white head, no retention and no lacing. Aroma is pure spices - nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, clove, plus some caramel. Flavor is the same, spice dominated and quite sweet with obvious pumpkin notes. Lightly astringent, light to medium body. Pretty good effort, if overspiced for my taste.
