Pours a medium amber with a smallish head like most pumpkin ales. Aroma is subtle but nice with cinnamon and pumpkin in front. As for the taste you can definitely taste the pumpkin in this one, it has that vegetative pumpkin taste, also some cinnamon and clove come through. This beer is not sweet, actually on the dry side and not one specific ingredient jumps out at you. Overall if you like an authentic pumpkin flavor and you don't want that artificial pumpkin pie taste this may be your beer.
