    APPEARANCE – Orange… murky with Very little head good flow of bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass

    AROMA- Strong nutmeg and of course pumpkin.

    TASTE –A little bitter in the after taste.  Good stand alone pumpkin flavor, but no traces of the nutmeg that was in the aroma.  Still Taste like beer, not over the top pumpkin.
