This beer pours in a glass orange in color with a little head on top. It tastes good going down, a carbonated apple cider with a hint of pumpkin in taste. It makes for an interesting combination for your taste buds. Like most of the pumpkin ales I've had before, there is a mild aftertaste, but it is not revolting. It's a great fall pumpkin ale, and easy to drink. It is great to sit down by yourself and have a bottle, or take it out and share it with a friend.. Its only con is that it is a little pricey at $12.99 for a 22 ounce bottle.
