In more detail? The beer was a crystal clear orange-amber, with a finger+ of head. The smell started to match the flavour a bit as it warmed, but at the onset, it didn't tell you much. It just had - to me - faint notes of spice and maybe the yeast. Hogie thought it smelled like the inside of a hollowed-out pumpkin. The taste? It really was like liquid pumpkin pie. It had gentle / mild spicing, and a certain mellowness to it. A bit bright, but mostly smooth & mellow. Nothing stood out too much: carb, mouthfeel, any specific flavours. It was a solid, pretty-darn-well-balanced brew; more than I thought it would be.
