Malty aroma has an overtone of cinnamon and subtle pumpkin and earthy notes. Pours a dark orange amber with a thick, fluffy, persistent pale tan head. Flavor has malty and caramel notes with hints of pumpkin, cloves and cinnamon. Smooth texture has firm body and good fizz. If you like pumpkin beers, pick this one from the patch.

Mild pumpkin aroma. The flavor was a spicy pumpkin, mostly cinnamon. Unfortunately, the flavors weren’t fresh, but rather stale.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Amber brew qwith off white head that settles to a persistent froth. Aroma of pumpkin, spices, light malts. Taste is sweet, malt and pumpkin, with spices emerging later in the swallow. A bit of grassy bitter in the finish almost slakes the sweetness, but not quite. More emphasis on the pumpkin taste than pumpkin spice, which is good IMO. A nice brew.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
a moderate body and watery mouthfeel. this beer is too light on the spice and a bit more pronounced in the pumpkin flavor. there is a bit of mild hop and just a bit more malt. seems incomplete.

This is a solid pumpkin beer. The spices definitely come through in the taste, giving it a pumpkin pie flavor. Very enjoyable.
