Tap at The Oak. Hazy copper pour with a small head that collect to a thin ring. Aroma is packed with cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg with light caramel. Taste has a very mild sweetness. Spices take over the weak malt flavor. A tad watery. An uninteresting pumpkin beer.

On tap at Fenton Fire Hall...dark orange pour and a very earthy roasted pumpkin flavor with fresh ground real spices. One of the best pumpkin beers I’ve had and glad to see its out of retirement!

Growler: Caramel-orange body with lighter, amber edges. A quickly fading, light-beige head sits on top. Heavily spiced aroma. Basket of gingerbread, whole cloves, nutmeg, mild caramel toast, & perhaps a little bit of cinnamon sticks near the back-end. Cloves & ginger root sticks out to me the most. Flavor is the same way; lots of spicy-sweet clove & ground ginger mixing with the toasty, bready malts to give a moderate gingerbread flavor. Nutmeg, very faint vanilla, toasty caramel, bread, allspice. Certainly no shortage of spices in this ale, with a timid sweetness flowing from front to back for balance.

On tap at Pete’s Place. Pours an interesting dark amber color. Looks almost like a fresh apple cider. A big spiced pumpkin aroma with a very true pumpkin flavor. The flavor is nice a fresh. A nice pumpkin vegetal kick upfront with a nice spicy blend. Would go great with a fruit pie. A solid pumpkin effort from Shorts. And one on the higher end for me as pumpkin brews go.
