This beer pours an amber-orange colour with no head. Tons of Malt, and there is a hair in it probably mine, and a hint of Pumkin. Nice lite mouthfeel with spices evident in the Flavour. There is definitely a Pumpin after flavor in the finish. A very nice concoction from the boys at BBB. Kudos.

Bottle->Pint glass. Pour is fantastic. Cloudy, silty orange-amber, with a 3/4’’ dirty, egg-shell-colored head which dissipates too quickly. Zero lacing. Smells of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, banana and melon. Tastes of cinnamon, with a follow-up of the banana. Hops are introduced immediately after the cinnamon subsides. Nice overall maltiness with hints of cereal and fruit to balance. Clove finish. Crisp palate. Bought with the season in mind; first pumpkin beer ever. Opinion/rating may change as I experience others.

I havn’t tasted many pumpkin beers that I’ve liked a whole lot, but this one is actually decent. The aroma and flavor are pleasant with a nice mixture of spices and nutmeg. This pumpkin ale is more understated than others, thankfully. It’s quite drinkable but only the balance really stands out.

Interesting brew, but it didn’t quite measure up to my expectations. Very dry feel in the mouth with an overload of spice. I ws generous on my rating, but this will be my one and only try.

An orangish brown with a pretty foamy head. Has a nice spicy taste to it with a mild sweet hint of pumpkin and maybe some cinnamon. Very smooth and refreshing to drink.

Nutmeg, nutmeg, nutmeg. Pours a light amber color with a miniscule head. Lots of nutmeg aroma with a hint of pumpkin and hops. Essentially, this reminds me of BMC swill with a darker color and a few tablespoons of nutmeg. This one could stand some malt complexity to counterbalance the nutmeg bite. Unbalanced, thin and hard to drink.

For some reason, this is one of my favorites. It’s one of those beers that goes perfect on a Sunday afternoon on a crisp, sunny fall day. Full of cinnamon, clove and pumpkin spices. Delicious.

Aroma of pumpkin spices with a slight yeastiness. Body is a bit watery with a strong spice finish. Flavor is thin with a slight cinnamon bite and a lack of any discernable pumpkin.
