Draft at Brixx. Pours orange with a thin white head. Big pumpkin on the nose. Nice spice rack on the tongue although the pumpkin tastes a bit prefab. Clean finisher. Solid but a bit one note.

EHouse (170) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 9, 2011
Deep hazelnut with a light head of white. Great aroma of clove, cinnamon, and all those pumpkin pie spices. Medium body, flavors are a mess of spices with a cloying, medicinal bitterness that distracts from everything else. Almost tastes like vodka in the finish. Like a lot of pumpkin brews I’ve had, this is way over spiced and not very balanced.

A: The beer pours a cloudy brown color with just a small off-white head. S: It’s slightly acidic on the nose before the spices come into play. Plenty of cinnamon and nutmeg, perhaps a hint of vanilla. There are some definite green apple and apple cider notes along with a light bread aroma. T: Starts off with sweet malt and bread notes. Some good spiciness of nutmeg and cinnamon. There is a mild toasted malt flavor as well as some hints of fruits and a light tartness. M: Medium bodied with low to medium carbonation. O: Reminiscent of my failed/infected pumpkin homebrew a couple years ago.

Tasted at twin city taps. Ok beer. This tasted of spice more than pumpkin slightly dry.

Received this from my Secret Santa KarrHeel03, thanks for the opportunity. Pours a slightly hazy orange color with a two finger tightly bubbled off white head that slowly dissipates to a cap. Smells of nutmeg and pumpkin pie spices mostly. I really can’t get through the spices to find any beer in the nose. Taste is more of the same spices with an almost vegetal taste deep in the background. Medium body that finishes on the dry side. Lightly carbonated. Nothing objectionable here, but nothing spectacular either.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a clear copper color with an average fizzy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy spicy tart pumpkin aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy spice and pumpkin sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Good seasonal beer.

12 oz. bottle via trade. Pours a clear amber color with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet pumpkin pie aroma with the usual list of accompanying spices: cinnamon, nutmeg, etc. The flavor has a nice dose of pumpkin that is balanced by the spices. This is somewhat thin and watery. Flavor fades into the finish.

Brown with a hint of orange in color, clear with a thin head. Lots of pumpkin, spices (Cinnamon and nutmeg) in the nose. Great dark malt and pumpkin flavor tons of spice. This beer ranks as a high end Pumpkin beer.
