OK pumpkin ale with more spices than pumpkin. If you feel like you have to drink something with pumpkin in it this would be fine...then you could move on to a beer that taste good. A one and done beer for me...

Bottle to tumbler. Pours amber, crystal clear, small tan head leaving laces on the glass. Low carbonation. Nose of nutmeg, pumpkin pie, cinnamin, brown sugar, no noticable hop aroma. Taste is cinnamin and pumpkin with more brown sugar. Light bodied, and balanced very nicely. This is my first pumpkin ale so hard to rate comparing to style, but this is a very pleasent and refreshing ale

Well done earthy pumpkin and spice aroma and taste. Big biscuity malt blends well with spices, and finishes with astringency.

For some reason this year I have felt the need to try Pumpkin beers.
I thought This would be a pumpkin beer.
However, after tasting it, is a a good ale... with a little too much spice.
The pour is cloudy amber, with a small whitish head.
the Aroma is sweat malt, clover and nutmeg.
The beer lingers a bit on the pallate, and the flavor is pretty much over powered by the spices.
An ok beer.

It poured a hazy dark orange color with a small off-white head. The aroma was spicy nutmeg and cinnamon. The taste was definitely pumpkin rind with some nutmeg. There is also a hint of cinnamon. A very good pumpkin ale.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle. Pours a nice clear orangish amber color with a long-lasting off-white head. The aroma has big pumpkin pie spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, with a bit of sweet caramel malt. Flavor is like a pumpkin ale that’s a bit overspiced and doesn’t have any pumpkin. Caramel malt and big spiced notes, with lots of cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. I don’t like the mouthfeel much, as the spices linger a little more than I’d like and it’s a bit thin. Mediocre overall.

Pours a nice orange amber with no head. Smells more of pumpkin or pumpkin pie than straight spices. Tastes much the same. Smooth finish and pretty decent.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Strong aroma of pumpkin pie spics, brown sugar, just what I would expect from this style of beer. The flavor hints at cinnamon and nutmeg, with a solid bready malt backbone. Very little hops. Above average pumpkin beer.
