    look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

    APPEARANCE – Deep reddish orange with very little head.  Very little bubble flow from the bottom of the glass

    AROMA – strong on the spices, clove and cardamom.

    TASTE – Spicy… But not like hot pepper spice, it is the autumn spices that I taste; again clove is very strong in this field.  This is like drinking a non-sweet pumpkin pie.  Also there are subtle notes of nutmeg

    MOUTHFEEL – A little thick, not too surypy though.  Also very carbanatted, funny since there is almost no head to this beer.

    CONCLUSION –  I think this is a wonderful pumkin ale, as it reminds me of the old harvest back before we sweetend everything and used spices to persearve our food.  This is a good spicy pumpkin ale but it will sneak up on being at 8% ABV.
