Cloudy orange with almost no head. Fairly rich in pumpkin aroma but watery mild taste with less autumn spices than most other pumpkin beers. Sour to rancid after taste ruins the beer though.

Pours mostly clear orange with a small sandy head. Aroma is light cloves and some fall spice zest. Flavor is amber malty dominant with light spices and a very light body.

ReggieDunlap (3008) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 17, 2013
Pours a clear orange/amber with a thin off white head that disappears immediately. Aroma has light pumpkin and a tangy sweetness that reminds me of ketchup. Flavor is tnagy with mild pumpkin and spice...still reminding me of ketchup...i hate ketchup. Mouthfeel is light/medium and the finish is tangy/earthy with a touch of spice. Dislike.

It's a pretty mild pumpkin. If you wait 1/4th of a year forth is, you're in a sad state. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazey caramel color, spice and cloves flavor, not lot of pumpkin pie flavor. Good with chips :)

The beer pours an amber, golden color with almost no head and no lacing at all. The beer smells like a mild pumpkin scent that lingers. The taste is overly carbonated carbonated and bubbly with a mild pumpkin back end. The mouthfeel is over carbonated and somewhat watery. Overall, this was one of the worst pumpkin ales I’ve ever a had. If you don’t like pumpkin and want carbonation...then this is your beer.

Bule (690) - California, USA - OCT 2, 2013
12oz bottle pours a hazy pale brown color. Pumpkin pie flavors with cloves a dominant spice flavor. A little harshness.

fakebeersnob (132) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - OCT 2, 2013
Poured a pumpkin-ish cloudy amber with no real head to speak of. The initial whiff from the bottle was very pumpkin smelling, but even after pouring all in a tulip that smell is dilluted. There is hints of pumpkin, with spice overpowrering it, but overall really bland and watery. Worst pumpkin beer I have had.

Bottle - unable to pour out of bottle to see, sweet malty aroma and flavor with a fair amount of pumpkin/clove spice, not overpowering but definitely there - not bad overall ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
