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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is liquid pumpkin pie, complete with the whipped cream topping. Sharp nutmeg bites right into the aroma. The cinnamon and clove are more evident in the flavor. Turns a lot of people off, but I kinda like it.

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.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark orange pour with a quickly fading white head, not much lacing. Delicious spicy aroma - pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, nutmeg perhaps. Same spiciness carries over to the flavor with a little bit of cloves in there as well. Mouthfeel is a tad thin and the spicy flavor fades near the end. Still not a bad novelty beer though.

I am assuming that the draft version of this beer is 10x better, but with that being said, the bottled version isnt all bad. Smells like a pumpkin pie. Looks reddish orange. Flavor is less pumpkin and more cinnamon and nutmeg. It is very easy to drink and I will probably get some more during the next holliday season just to be festive.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
( 12oz bottle) Pours very clear light orange. Nose of nutmeg, pumpkin, cinnamon. Taste is dry, raw pumpkin, and cinnamon. Reminds of Christmas. Lingers with spices and nicely sweet.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This one’s definitely the spiciest smelling pumpkin ale that I’ve had in a while. Nice looking orange (how appropriate) color with little head but plenty of carbonation. Plenty of fizz in the mouth (good?) with strong pumpkin & spicy tastes. Oddly a bit watery. Clean finish with a lingering cinnamon and nutmeg aftertaste. Fun drinking once a year.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
350 ml bottle from Bevmo. Hazy orange with a fizzy white head. Sweet malty pumpkin and spice aroma and taste, but the taste is oddly dull somehow.
