A lot of people complain that pumpkin ales are too much like pumpkin pie in a glass. This one balances nicely... Spiced, but not 'knock you over' spiced. There's a note of real pumpkin here; I think next time I would round the Rausch malt I used up to 4 oz to provide a touch more of the smoky undertone... It gives the brew a certain something that helps it stand apart. I would definitely re-brew this.
