1.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
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

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Appearance- Pours I hate to say it a cloudy pumpkin orange with a quickly disappearing white head. Light lacing that was there one second and gone the next.
Aroma- Spices (cinnamon and nutmeg) with a fruity smell
T/P fairly light the smell is defiantly stronger than the taste. Very strong after taste to speak of, does kinda taste like you are drinking a pumpkin pie. Does have more of a spiced cider feel than a beer.
Overall- Good beer for Halloween due to the novelty factor and that is not a terrible beer. Not a great beer for a hard core beer drinker or one that does not like fruit / vegetable beers, but all in all a good beer to drink every so often

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 9/20
Not much flavor for a pumpkin ale. A bit flat compared to other brands. No smell of pumpkin either. Drinkable but not as good as other brands on the market with pumpkin. I would not try it again.

We did a blind taste test between this beer and other pumpkin ales to determine which one is the best pumpkin ale for the season. The beers were Shipyard Pumpkinhead, Shock Top Pumpkin Wheat, Buffalo Bill’s America’s Original Pumpkin Ale, Blue Moon Harvest Pumpkin Ale, and New Belgium Pumpkick. Check it out:

Out of bottle flat, sweet, just a very mediocre pumpkin ale. Last years I thought was better. Just not a lot a going on here.
