Pours a dark golden brown. Aroma is full of spice, not much pumpkin. The taste introduces the pumpkin and follows with more spice. This isnít anything remarkable but itís very drinkable and has a nice "autumn" feel to it. I liked it.

Pours deep amber brown with some red tones and creamy tan, quickly dissipating head. It smells like pumpkin, molasses, some spice. Nice roasty notes caramel and pumpkin sweetness, a light vegetal note and a medium bittersweet finish. Medium bodied with some fairly lively carbonation. I like it. I donít think the spice is overpowering and the darker malt bill lends well to pumpkin flavor.

Pours a dark black/brown color with a huge off-white head. The aroma is pumpkin, cinnamon, spices, and sweet malts. The taste is light and full of spices and pumpkin. Pretty good but a little to light for my taste.

2.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Nice slightly hazy deep brown coloured body with a rich ruby, amber and copper coloured tint and a solid, two centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of very pungent spice and squash - nice and fragrant with allspice, canella, caramelised sugars and a little bit of banana with the ever-present squash and earthy malt. Light-bodied; Oddly thin with no taste of the squash at all - just some very light malt and almost no spice in the flavour, only some caramel and light metal on the finish. Aftertaste is oddly lacking as well - not only are there no real flavours, but the beer just drifts off to water and the slightest bit of nuts and brown sugar. Overall, a very interesting beer with every indication that it would be a good tasting and complex beer, but in actuality, it was exactly opposite - water in almost every respect aside from the look and smell. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Whole Foods in Tysonís Corner (Falls Church), Virginia on 26-November-2013 for US$1.99 sampled at home in Washington on 28-January-2014.

Can thanks to Brian. Pours clear ruby with a large beige creamy head and nice lacing. Aroma is spices, caramel, pumpkin. Allspice, cloves, nutmeg, dark sugars, cinnamon. Flavor is the same, medium sweet, little bitterness, fairly spicy, but not overwhelming. Medium body. Not bad.
