Draft @ The Falls location. Pours hazy burnt orange color with off white head. Aromas of cinnamon and clove. Tastes like pumpkin pie spices. Medium body with average carbonation.

On tap at the Irvine location. Dark, orangish amber pour, transparent, with a thin layer of wispy beige head. A distinct clove aroma instantly grabs my nostrils, along with a bit of ginger. Some light vanilla and caramels also combine, softening up the gingerbread cookie aroma a bit. Light bodied, crisply carbonated mouthfeel. Lots of clove and ginger spice - I wish it had more cinnimon and nutmeg characters to give it a bit of a more traditional pumpkin pie flavor. Its rare that I complain about this aspect of a beer, buts its almost over attenuated. The dry finish makes the ginger and clove seem all the more dominant, which overpowers the caramel malt background a bit. The spices start to get a bit astringent toward the finish. Not a bad beer though - easy drinking, great accompaniment to my meal.

Not the worst pumpkin beer Iíve ever had, but still I find them lacking. Perhaps Iím expecting a bit more sweetness to come forward and since it never does, Iím left slightly disappointed. Either way, this wasnít a bad beer at all. Aroma is slightly vegetative, perfumy with enough nutmeg to notice. Appearance is a light amber color, off-white head. Flavor was a bit green, vegetative with some subtle cinammon and nutmeg spices to notice but not overpower. A bit watery, I felt if it were more creamy, with a little more sweetness left in it it could have been better. But, still...not bad.

On tap at Chino Hills location. At first the beer was quite strange. A good amount of initial flavor that faded into a weird nothingness. However, it did seem to get better. The spice/clove/cinnamon that you would expect with an ok malt backbone. As for the style, this was probably at least average.

[Tap] Pours a bright orange color with a small amount of white head. Nose is of clove, ginger and nutmeg. Sweet and malty in taste. Caramel and some toffee notes throughout. Typical pumpkin pie spices with a heavy emphasis on ginger. The body is a bit thin, but really not too bad. High carbonation level and easy to drink. It was good to try.

Orange in color with a decent off-white head. Aroma is of pumpkin pie (cinnamon, nutmeg, all spice, pumpkin). Taste is the same. Just like most every other pumpkin beer out there.

Clear, ruddy, medium brown. Thin head, bubbly on the side of the glass. Sweetish, perfumy-spice aroma. Dominated by soft cinnamon tones. Dryish with the sweetness implied by the spice rather than actual. Lightlsh body. Cinnamon roll finish. BJís, Tallahassee.

Pours a nice amber. Smell is robust and lovely. Big pumpkin spice flavor with cinnamon and nutmeg seeming evident. Taste is very thin, muted and watery, but the pumpkin flavor that shows is still nice. Very pumpkin pie like in the flavor that is there. Drinkable, nice attempt, that would be great with a big more boldness.

(Pinellas Park) Crystal clear amber body with off-white head. Aroma is moderately sweet, nutmeg, some allspice, clove. Taste is medium sweet, caramel, some allspice, light nutmeg. Light body. With the aroma, I was expecting something special, but the flavor really let me down.
