So I'm not always a fan of the obligatory pumpkin beer, but this one is uniquely awesome! Amber red like autumn leaves...aroma is a waft of fermented hops and the faintest sweet cinnamon. Ridiculously smooth taste...a bit of sour hop and malt...it is here that the pumpkin slowly and gently enters...wait and the cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove reveal themselves pleasantly...I want to carve this beer into a jackolantern...but if I did, it would have a friendly face! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
