One of my favorite pumpkin ales. The spices are exactly to my taste - not overpowering in aroma or taste. The one aspect of this beer that I feel is missing is the mouth feel. There is no cream, no body. But, when you take into account this beer is coming in at 5.7%, it goes down awfully smooth. Great beer. I hate to say this, but go Cooooooors!

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 1/11/2016. Pours slightly cloudy orange/amber color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, caramel, brown sugar, wheat, toasted biscuit, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of pumpkin/spices and dark/bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, caramel, brown sugar, wheat, toasted biscuit, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/spice bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, caramel, brown sugar, toasted biscuit, and herbal/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Good complexity, balance, and solid robustness of pumpkin/spice and dark/bready malt flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, lightly creamy/bready, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is okay. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a solid pumpkin ale style. All around good balance, complexity, and solid robustness of pumpkin/spices and dark/bready malt flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A pleasantly enjoyable offering.

On tap in Bethesda, MD. Hazy orange bdoy with slight head. Nose is spicy, fruits and pumpkin. Taste way too sweet with notes of pumpkin and spices. Not my thing.

12 oz bottle poured in pint glass. One fingeg off white head. Beer is a clear amber color. Aroma is lightly malty with some spices and nutmeg. Taste is lightly sweet and malty with some medium notes of spice. Very little true pumkin. Average carbonation. Smooth finish. Over all an average enjoyable pumpkin ale. On the malty side with plenty of spice and extras but not over kill.

I know a lot of people aren’t crazy about this product, but I’ve found it’s heavier flavors enticing me for another, and another, and another. The nutmeg shows through from beginning to end and when I want a lighter beer with something earthy behind it at this time of year, it is often my go to. It doesn’t excel, but it was refreshing for me.

This beer is getting too harsh reviews imo. VERY good beer. If you like pumpkin pie this is like pumpkin pie in a bottle.

Just one more cheap pumpkin spice thing for me to hate, really. It’s too sweet, and it gave me an IBS flare up.
