Comments J-lemon/citrusy overpowers the spices/ refreshing, clean, not warm and autumy – kinda California autumn. K- initally sweet with a nice blend of all pumpkin spices, dry and somewhat bitter finish with a touch of citrus. Definately less sweet and a bit more hoppy than your average pumpkin ale.
