Tap at the brewery. Pours clear amber with a medium, frothy off-white head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, and biscuit malt. Flavor is malt and spices with light hops and bitterness, and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Got this in a growler swap, not a big pumpkin brew fan but this one was good. Not overly spiced with nutmeg which let the pumpkin shine through the way a pumpkin brew should

Just ok. A bit watery. This had a noce appearance to start, but it fell short. More flavor please.

aroma is sweet and like oktoberfest. Great color but taste is avg. 1xtreme spice on the aftertaste -- almost offensive -- overall just ok

Pretty average. Nice holiday spice nose is the best part of this ale. Thin with a bit of spice is the taste. Backing ale is missing a maltiness one would want.

Draft... Light amber ale. The only thing that really stands out to me is the excellent, spicy aroma. The flavor is spicy as well with nutmeg and cinnamon, but paper thin. Light-bodied and watery with medium carbonation. Short, lifeless finish.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Light aroma of nutmeg, color is a mix of amber and yellow, flavor is lightly spicy nutmeg and cinnamon, not very impressive for a pumpkin ale, could use a lot more work. Finished watery.
