Appearance: Pours medium amber with a thick white head. Head clings to the glass leaving a nearly solid curtain on the glass as it fades.
Aroma: Even with a head cold, I pick up scents of nutmeg and cinnamon and a definate pumpkin aroma.
Taste: Solid pumpkin flavor, floral hops, well blended with traditional spices. Hints of vanilla.
Mouthfeel: Heavy carbonation.
Overall: With my dulled senses I'd still give this beer a B. Overall it seems well balanced, and the brewers actually cared enough to give the pumpkin a presence in the beer. I like the taste of pumpkin in beer, and wouldn't mind tasting more. My only faulty is that the beer could use a bit less carbonation overall.
Definately a must try pumpkin ale.
