Draft taster. This one is the Pumpkin Fest turned up a few notches. Has an abundance of pumpkin spice on the nose and palate. A little more candy sweetness on the nose and bitterness on the finish.

Bomber, thanks ctomson! Pumpkin aroma with spicy notes of nutmeg, allspice and cinnamon. Pours orange-amber with a thin white head and no lacing. Starts with good pumpkin flavors with notes of spice. Finishes smooth with the spice flavors of nutmeg, allspice and cinnamon. Good pumpkin beer.

Orange pour, mostly white head. This is a very good beer. The pumpkin and the spices are balanced well with some caramel and toffee notes. Nice autumn drinker.

Bomber. Pumpkin beer #3. Aroma is full of pumpkin spices, nutmeg the strongest. Pours hazy pumpkin orange with a medium off-white head with decent retention. Taste is sweet and savory with a little bitterness; licorice is there. Best pumpkin beer yet.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle share. Pours a hazy slightly burnt orange and airy white cap. Aroma of nutmeg, cinnamon, and shampoo. Ben says Pantene Pro-V. Yup. Very shampoo-ey. Taste is sweet, and an odd bitterness, probably from dry spices. A slimy mouthfeel, and a pasty finish. Bizarre.

we missed the bottles of this, which is too bad, cause itís a goodín. 9.3% makes the body and flavor substantial wihtout bringing even a whiff of heat. Pumpkin and spices done just right. Malty and gooood.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught. Pours a mostly clear brown color with a small head on there. Nose has enough pumpkin that the pumpkin actually comes through with moderate complementary spice notes. Taste is slightly sweet and fairly spicy, and actually a pretty easy drink.

22oz bottle. My first pumpkin beer of the season. Pours out a a cloudy amber topped with a sand head. Nose is nice pumpkin pie spice not heavy on the spice just right. Taste is as the nose with a nice not over the top pumpkin kick.

Bottle picked up a few days ago.. Enjoyed tonight from my Funkfest goblet... Hazy orange brew with a thin and short lived head.
Nose show traditional spices but also has plenty of gourd... Allspice is in my mind the big player with nutmeg and then a warming cinnamon..
Flavor pretty much mirrors the nose with a lingering allspice essence on the finish.. pumpkin flesh really does shine through but even giving the judicious hand, is pummeled back by the pie spice.
Good body and carbonation...
I dig this one for a pretty standard Pumpkin beer... the spices arenít overdone in the grand scheme, but are still too much for me to really enjoy.
A 22 is more than I really want and more than I will enjoy this year.
