2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear orangish pour with a thin white head that is gone quickly. Faint pumpkin spice aroma. Taste is mostly spice and very little pumpkin with something odd I can’t quite place. Prickly carbonation.

Bottle on brew day. Overly sweet, candy-like, somewhat watery. Some spices, but the amber base is really weak and doesn’t impart much flavor.

Don’t let this one fool you...It is excellent ! Smells like liquid pumpkin pie. Taste like cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, pie crust and pumpkin. Better than most of the half assed attempts at a pumpkin beer, i have sampled quite a few over the years and this one is on my top 10 list. Southern Tier Pumking, Weyerbacher Imperial Pumpkin Ale, Heavy Seas The Great Pumpkn, Shipyard Smashed Pumpkin, Terrapin Pumpkinfest, Sam Adams Fat Jack Imperial Pumpkin, Lakefront Pumpkin Lager, Buffalo Bills America’s Original Pumpkin Ale, Sam Adams Harvest Pumpkin Ale, Post Road Pumpkin Ale...Theses are my favorites..you be the judge

Color is light orange with small white head. I smell cinnamon, pumpkin, yeast, and very light spice. Taste is pumpkin, yeast, some spice and brown bread. Clean finish, nice drinking beer...

Decent taste considering the lack of aroma. The alcohol in this one is fragrant and pungent, and the balance is a bit off. Not enough spices, and the malt is barely there. The best thing about this beer is the taste, though, which is a decent enough point to save it a little teeny bit. I liked the packaging, too.

Average beer. Not a strong pumpkin taste. More cinnamon and cloves than pumpkin

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The beer pours an orange color with a small white head. The aroma is grain and cinnamon, with a few other assorted spices thrown in. The flavor is similar. I get a lot of nutmeg and cinnamon notes, as well as a hint of cinnamon. Overall, the beer is lacking in the aroma and flavor and doesn’t stand up to the better pumpkin beers. Medium mouthfeel and high carbonation.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Aroma of cinnamon, slight clove and slight bread. Pours murky brown with little film. Taste is tart with baking soda, yeast and slight spice. Sits terribly in the mouth. Not a fan.

This beer definitely pours cloudy and the aroma is lack luster at best. That being said, the flavor is definitely not bad. I don’t think i would buy it again, but I wouldn’t refuse a pint if offered..

Pours hazy dark copper with small head. Good aromas of pumpkin, spice, and bread. Tastes of pumpkin, some spice, and dank bread. Good taste, but moldy bready palate not enjoyable.
