Draft at Black Squirrel. Clear golden color. Nice spiced apple aroma on a background of buffalo wings, thanks to ajax25g who is sitting next to me munching away. Taste is smooth and spiced. Not bad.

Bottle that popped up in a bargain bin at Nugget Market in Woodland, CA. Pours gold with no head. Light aromas of pie spice. Med minus body. Flavor is a bit tart (is that crisp?) with light pie spice. Not sure about squash. Fairly tasty stuff.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft sample. Poured clear dark golden color with a minimal fizzy white head that diminished slowly with good legs. Moderate aroma of tart apple and spice. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium apple spice flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations were met.

A golden bubbly cider with aroma of apple juice and pumpkin spices, cloves and ginger, cinnamon. In mouth, nice combination of sweet tart apples and pumpkin pie spices, oily mouth feel, more like a pop but still good. On tap at Downtown Brew fest LV 2013.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
5oz taster on tap during Cincinnati Beer Fest 2013. Totally clear golden yellow orange color. Minimal white head. Nice pumpkin type spicy aroma, works well with the apple. Lighter, kind of crisp carbonation. More dry finish. Sort of tart taste, light sweet. Solid pumpkin cider, slight macro feel, but it’s not bothersome... The whole flavor combo works well and carries the cider.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
10/30/13. On tap at Bleu Cafe. Biting the bullet on this since there wasn’t anything else new on tap. Clear golden orange pour with no head, as expected. Mild, sweet cider aroma with just a hint of pie spice. Sweet flavor, apple cider with nutmeg and cinnamon. This is actually pretty good if you know what you’re in for. Like most pumpkin beers, it’s basically just spice, but unlike the beers, in this case it makes it into a really nice tasting cold spiced apple cider. I don’t mind it one bit.

"Thought I’d break into the pumpkin stuff with something different this year. Really dig the aroma of allspice, pumpkin and apple, in that order. The flavor is good, but not as wonderfully pumpkiney. Overall, pretty nice and a change of pace."
