Draft. Pours amber with an off white head. Pumpkiny aroma with light spices. The flavor has pumpkin, spices and light notes of vanilla. Not bad.

Growler from Big Z Beverage. Pours a transparent, deep gold with a thin, creamy white head. Big spicy aroma, ginger, nutmeg, sweet, brown sugar, caramel, honey, root vegetables. Flavor was big on the ginger upfront, sweet, like a sweet potato with some brown sugar, honey, nutmeg. Medium bodied, dry finish.

On tap at Gingerman prior to going to Joe’s going away party. Pours an orange amber with a medium sized white head. Dusty cinnamon, spices, allspice, toasted pie crust. Thin to medium bodied, bitter malt and empty grain with stale spices. Empty and disappointing.

Probably one of the worse pumpkin beers I’ve had, drain pour. Surprising from such a good brewery.
