On tap at the brewpub: This pours a hazy amber body with a respectable head and good lacing. The aroma is mainly about the spices - allspice, nutmeg, and cinnamon are evident - with just a little caramel sweetness. The flavor is interesting, a clean malt base with the usual pumpkin ale spicing,but then a hint of the juniper and coriander step in - just enough to keep the other spices from getting overbearing. Actually not bad, for a style that really doesn’t thrill me.
