Pale orange color in the glass with a small head. Aroma has mild pumpkin but a blend of other spices. Maybe some cinnamon. Taste has a little tang to it with some nutmeg and pumpkin. Pretty good beer.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours with a hazy orange to red body with a scan off-white head. Aromas are all spice showcasing ginger and allspice. Very much a mulling spice feel. Bready and caramel malt notes, light esters (compared to their other beers). A bit sharp. Flavors are of mulling spices, cinnamon, nutmeg and brown sugar. Bitter (spice bitterness), a touch metallic. Bready malt. Lively bubbles, thin and somewhat dry.
