2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 20, 2012 My parents had this at their place so gave it a whirl. Stubby’ish bottle poured into glass a clear copper color, off-white head. Aroma of light pumpkin spices. Taste was on the weak side, light spices and pumpkin. Not a hard drinker that’s for sure! I’ll side with others there are better options out there but decent in a pinch.

Bottle to pint. Looks solid; a transparent copper with good carbonation and off-white lacing. Smells and tastes alright; light and pumpkin spice with an average mouthfeel. More lagerish, so it doesn’t weigh you down (filtered?). Exceeded my expectations.

Slightly darker orange than Shipyard’s. Head dies rapidly and leaves pretty much no lacing. Aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg, and just a touch of earthy malt. Better balance of spice and malt here, but again, quite watery, which washes out the taste rather quickly. I remember having a mix of pumpkin ales last year and the year before - probably Schlafly and Sam Adams included among them - and they sure spoiled me.

I love pumpkin, so when I buy a beer that says "Pumpkin" on it, I expect to be able to taste it! This is not the case with this beer. VERY little spice or pumpkin flavor and overall just not a great tasting beer. Would not try again.

Thin, slightly sour, this is just a trainwreck of a beer. Pumpkin pie spice is blunt.

Bottle. Amber brnze color. Smells sweet and bready. Taste is the same with a sweet. bitter aftertaste like sugar. Notgreat, but not my favorite style too begin with.

Where's the pumpkin? This beer falls flat on its face in the battle for king of pumpkin beers. Save these for unwanted guests during the fall.

Originally reviewed: 9/17/09. Eh. When I bought this I had much higher expectations as it is brewed with real pumpkins, but this let me down. Pours a dark orange with a bubbly off-white head on top. This disappears very quickly to nothing. No sheet or ring at all. This just looks like an orange soda. Smells of pumpkin, nutmeg, and allspice. Not bad.
The mouth is thin and lacking carbination. Weak. The flavor is weak as well. Some mild pumpkin and muted spiciness are there, but very mildly. This was a disappointment. Look for better pumpkin ales out there.
