Odd color, more auburn-mahogany. Some pumpkin and cinnamon in the nose, but some strange bitterness and caramel that seem odd. Odd malts, toffee’s there along with pumpkin and allspice/nutmeg. Finishes a bit sour. Not grand.

Pours a bright copper/orange/amber with a big creamy, lacy, off-white head. Smells spicy, lightly bitter with aromas of pumpkin and cinnamon.
Tastes spicy and sweet. Lots of pumpkin flavors in the body with a bitter finish. Medium bodied with a spicy pumpkin aftertaste. A bit creamy.
This isn’t bad for the style but the style is not for me. Not one I’d care to sample again.

I had one on Halloween this past fall and felt as if there was some fake pumpkin flavouring in my beer. I’m not sure what could be done to improve, but it didn’t taste real. It has good colour and some nice spice, but overall a poor attempt.

bottle. Pours a cloudy red orange color with a small white thin head. Very good aftertaste and palate,, very spicy aroma and clear punpkin scent. I would recommend Post Road Pumpkin Ale before this omne but this is not a low end shabby beer.

Nice coloring, orange to amber. Pumpkin flavor didn’t come through all that strong. Sweet and smooth finish.

Nice orange color. A sweet spice aroma and good carbonation. Not much pumpkin flavor. It would be better if I had poured it in the fall rather than a cold February day in MN.

actually a bit good. poured into a plastic cup at some restaurant i was at... sorta a light pumpkiny sweetness. just a tad artificial, but it’s not really noticeable. reminded me of flying dog’s dogtoberfest, but without the heavy veggies.

Nothing remarkable about this one. Pumpkin flavor is very subtle, and mainly noticable in the finish. Otherwise kind of tame.

Amber orange color, plenty of pumpkin aroma, but little on the palate. Still, hint of pumpkin and spice with nutmeg and cinnamon flavors. A good beer for a cool autumn evening.
