Bottled from Windy City. Nose is a little herbal and spiced. Strong cinnamon up front. A good nutmeg flavor and maybe a hint of cloves. A somewhat roasty fell to this brew. Good pumpkin base with some pretty strong spiced notes.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from a can. Muted aromas of cola, pumpkin, and maybe some spice. Not much there. It’s a dark brown with a soft tan head. There’s a bit too much of that residual aluminum flavor, and the other flavors (pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg) are too soft to overpower the tinny taste. Probably won’t do this one again.

The mouth feel is very creamy with the pumpkin gliding in on the tongue. Followed immediately by a wave of spices which are slightly overwhelming. Something tastes slightly rubbery and i can’t exactly put my finger on it. Overall i probably wouldn’t have wanted to have more than the single one i got.

Are you kidding me. I wish they all could be California pumpin beeeeers...This one rocked. The first taste was OK but after that each drink was a pumpkin orgasim in my mouth. Tastes good smells good feels good...Its just freaking good. I will have to get a piece of pumpkin bubble yum after this. This is a good drink at work, at home, at church. Any place you want a drink. PUmpkin this bad boy out. I will wait in the field with Linus for the Great PUmpkin if he is handing out this beer. Remember drink safely and if drinking at work make sure you have Big Red just in case your boss comes calling.

Bottle. Aroma has notes of brown sugar, pumpkin, spices, nutmeg and toasted caramel malts. Nice. Deep dark brown with a small off-white head that mostly diminished and left decent lace. Flavor is heavy sweet and lightly bitter. Palate is medium bodied and watery with an average carbonation. Overall a decent pumpkin brew with a good aroma.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fairly intense fall spice aroma (think seasonal candle). Lighter body and mouthfeel with the spices being much more subdued than the aroma would indicate. Quite drinkable and tasty.

12oz bottle from ABC on Apalachee. Amber pour with off-white head and spotty soapy lacing. Aroma is big sugary pumpkin spice. Tastes are cinnamon, ginger, nutty. Little tinny in the finish. Thin palate. Typical pumpkin.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2013 Thin and watery with too much carbonation. Absolutely no taste of pumpkin in this spiced ale. I had expected much more from this brewery and was not able to finish the six pack. I will not buy again.
