This beer exhibits very little pumpkin aroma if any with a head that dissipated in less than 10 seconds. While it has a beautiful pumpkinesque color it comes across as a sub-par pumpkin beer with very mild spicing.

harrymel (1448) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 19, 2013
There’s a random number on bottle neck indicating date, I don’t care enough to research this. A: Pours a turbid autumnal ruddy orange with limited ethereal head production. A translucent sheet of taupe foam remains. Spotty lace. S: Lots of allspice and nutmeg with some sour seedy characters. A bit of the yeast remains in there as well. T: Toasty with a graham cracker tone and again, plenty of nutmeg. Some cinnamon and bready tones. M: Medium bodied with really hi carb and a semi-dry finish. O: Meh. Same stuff, different bottle. Hard to find a really good pumpkin IMO. Serving type: bottle 10-20-2011

Poured a a cloudy orange light brown, with a head that disparates quickly. I smell pumpkin, holiday spices and wheat. I taste all of the same also has fresh clean finished. Not bad..
