12oz Bottle. The pour was a clear medium burnt orange with an average (1-2 finger) white fizzy head that was mostly diminishing, reducing to a light film and small collar with fair spotty lacing. The aroma was of a light bread malt and a mild doughy yeast with notes of pumpkin, nutmeg, brown sugar, clove and a bit of cinnamon. The taste was sort of thin with a light brown sugar sweetness and a malty pumpkin flavor early on, then became infused with a mild dose of spices and had a slight astringent taste towards the finish. The flavor was short lived, fading almost immediately after the swallow and leaving nothing behind. Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a lively carbonation. Overall this was like drinking a “Light” Pumpkin Ale, if there is such a thing. It did however possess a decent drinkability and a nice refreshing taste...

It pours from the bottle with a nice, deep, semi-transparent amber color, but without much of a head. The aroma is an expected combination of seasonal spices and a thin sweetness. The flavor has more depth, with a fruity sweetness and some dry herbal hops, but it certainly feels over-spiced since the underlying beer is difficult to identify. The texture doesn’t do much to counteract my disappointment, with a medium-thin body doing little to add character. Overall, the heavy-handed use of spice makes me wonder if the brewers just really love pumpkin pie or if they are covering a forgettable, bland beer.

Overall a good seasonal beer that is much better than last years batch. I'm not sure if BB made drastic changes or not to this years batch, but its a lot better! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Slightly hazy gold body with a white head. Malty vegetable aroma. Not much pumpkin in the flavor.

hbchrist (64) - North Carolina, USA - SEP 11, 2012
Very faint aroma with a whiff of pumpkin spices like cardamom. Easy level session beer that doesnt stick around. After taste is oddly buttery. Not much lace in the glass. Good quality product, though, and would be ideal for high volume drinking during a Thanksgiving food debauch.

I am a huge fan of pumpkin beers and this one was no letdown. Big pumpkin flavor tempered with lots of cinnamon and nutmeg.

Draught. I just can’t get into beers like this. Allthe spices detract from anything beerlike, so its not my bag.

Nice balance of pumpkin, pscie, cinnamon, bread and alcohol. I think I got this a little oast its prime, but it was good.
