3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle - brought by friend. Poured a clear copper color with a small off-white head. Aroma was pumpkin pie notes, but a bit more heavy on the pumpkin side - which was nice. Cinnamon and some nutmeg in there. Flavor was about the same, like a sweet pumpkin pie. Decent.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Glass: Sam Adams Perfect Pint.
Appearance: The body is a hazy amber with copper edges. A short light tan head comes out from the body on the pour but quickly dissipates to a ring and a very sparse coating.
Aroma: Canned pumpkin comes to mind with nutmeg behind it then some cinnamon. Mildly sweet, though a bit weak.
Taste: A bit bland, slightly watery. Hints of pumpkin with nutmeg and allspice there, hints of cinnamon. Finish is a bit watery with some spices.
Palate: Lighter medium boded, moderately carbonated.
Overall: A shame since I know Southampton are good brewers. This is watery and bland. Wouldn’t buy again.

Solid beer a bit more pumpkin and cinn flavor than some others. Not too heavy with only 5%abv so you can drink a few and not feel incredibly full like others.
