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

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

I half expected this to be overwhelmingly pumpkin flavored. But, to my surprise this was a very mild ale. Clove and nutmeg are present in the smell. Little to no head, and amber and cloudy color. Faint and pleasant pumpkin taste. I will be having another!

Pours a hazy golden brown with a frothy white head that doesn’t stick around long. Smells like your usual fare for pumpkin ales (nutmeg, cinnamon). Taste is pretty much the same with the addition of pumpkin and allspice. Overall a decent fall seasonal that doesn’t slam you with too much pumpkin pie essence.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy, straw-colored pour with plenty of carbonation. Some debris floating around.
A pumpkin ale with a sweet, pumpkin scent
Follows the scent closely, with the pumpkin dominating. Citrus and coriander in there as well. Starts well, but gets a little blander after the initial flavor.
Medium to light bodied, also very crisp and bubbly. Starts to overwhelm the flavor toward the end. It gets to the point where it feels like a light lager with pumpkin thrown in.
Started well, but ends a little disappointingly. I like the hints of pumpkin, but that ends up falling short by the finish. A little more balance between feel and taste would help.

did not like this at first, although this beer has a hell of an aroma, but it does not carry over in the taste. The taste is like a b/m/c product only with some pumpkin and spices thrown in. Quite watery, but I have to admit...it’s an interesting beer and worth picking up a case once a year.

Spicy, Delicious, tasted much better than I expected.
We don't rate labels but if we did, I would give this label a high rating too.

A good alternative to Harpoon’s Winter Warmer since Harpoon is not yet distributed on the West Coast.

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.
