Tap at Fresh Craft, Denver. Poured a clear reddish dark amber with a round white head. The aroma is pure pumpkin and so is the flavour. If you like pumpkin you will love this beer. If you don’t then you won’t !

Not a game changer by any means, but still an excellent pumpkin beer treat. Warm pumpkin notes without any major distractions from spices, as so many pumpkin beers suffer from. Highly drinkable, and very enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can: pour is clear golden amber with a modest off white head in this glass. It retains poorly in this glass. The nose is clearly the highlight here. Pumpkin, yam, spices of nutmeg.and cinnamon, and caramel sweetness. The flavor profile shares these features but the brew is a little thin, and it fades near the finish, presenting sweet breads, mineral water, and light hop bitterness

16 ounce can thanks to Nathan. Pumpkin and caramel. Evenly spiced. Light for ABV. About what to expect from the style when done well.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
16oz Can. The pour was a clear reddish orange with a head that was on the light side of average (1-2 finger), with an off white fizzy head that diminished totally after a few minutes and had poor lacing.
The aroma was of a light bread malt and a doughy yeast with notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin and clove.
The taste was a light malty sweet with a touch of pumpkin and nutmeg early on, becoming lightly bitter with a hint of cinnamon and a slightly spicy note of clove at the finish. The flavor lasted an average time after the swallow, being mostly of a light sweet spiciness that faded away rather slowly.
Mouthfeel was light in body with a watery texture and a mild carbonation.
Overall this was a decent tasting Pumpkin Ale and did possess a good drinkability, but as this style goes it was nothing overly special...
