Aroma is of pumpkin and fall spices, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. Pours a deep slightly hazy amber with a small head that dissipates fairly quick, it seems that most pumpkin ales don't hold their head very long, it's possible one of the common ingredients causes this. The taste is a nice blend of all the usual suspects pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg. This ale gives you enough fall flavor without going overboard. This was an enjoyable festive brew that I will have again and it drinks well for 8.1 % ABV. Rating 7.8 out of 10 in the pumpkin ale category.
