they did a great job with heavy use of pumpkin and spices to cover up what would be a very boring beer. low on "beer", high on spice. still thin, but if you like pumpkin and allspice, this one’s for you."

Pumpkin flesh, an interesting blend of spices, and capped with a light body that does not compromise flavor. The body isn’t pulpy or thick, and errs on the side of caution, but still offers a brisk, airy and pleasant seasonal bang.

Misc.: Enjoy by Jan. 4, 2015
Poured a dark caramel, auburn, hazy color with 1-to-2 fingers of creamy white head. A decent amount of wet foamy bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. Below average spots of foamy lacing on the sides of the glass. Below average retention on the top all the way down. (Sight - 3.61)
Smelled cinnamon, nutmeg, molasses, pumpkin, dark Belgian cloves, gingerbread, banana bread, honey and caramel. Very nice on the nose. (Smell - 4.22)
Taste wasn’t as good as the nose, but close and still decent. Got cinnamon, pumpkin spices, nutmeg, molasses, gingerbread, banana bread, honey, roasted rye, Belgian cloves and banana. (Taste - 3.93)
Medium body. Thin texture. Soft carbonation. Long, semi-warming finish. (Feel - 3.64)
I’d have to crunch the numbers, but one of the better pumpkin ales I’ve had. I know I haven’t had a lot of the good ones yet though.

You know onetime, this asshole (and I can’t even remember who or where) said that pumpkin pie wasn’t "real pie". It hurt my feelings. It made me mad. I love pumpkin pie. I don’t love this beer. It’s good. It’s balanced but monotone. Got it in a 6 pack sampler and that’s a perfect place for it. Drink one to try it. Write a review and move on.

Pours a clear amber with a small, creamy head. Pumpkin pie aromas: Cinnamon, clove, pumpkin. Taste is a little muddled, not something you would ask for again.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle from Whole Foods in Redwood City, CA. Pours a medium to dark amber. Aroma is squash, dirty water, some cinnamon. Flavor is watery, earthy, clay, squash. Stale pumpkin pie flavoring in a moldy, water-downed 711 slurpee found in a dumpster. Minus all the good stuff.

This is a good cheap little beer. It’s nothing fancy. Nice smell of pumpkin and pumpkin spice taste. Squash taste is detectable as well. It could be better it could be worse. I’m enjoying it!
