Very light bodied, not sweet at all. A dry, nutmeg and cinnamon-flavored nose. The taste here is almost entirely derived from the smell, itís almost like drinking heavily scented seltzer water. Not quite what I was expecting.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 11/13/2014. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy orange/copper color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of pumpkin, toasted biscuit, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and solid complexity of bready malt, pumpkin, and spice notes; with solid strength. Taste of pumpkin, toasted biscuit, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Minimal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of pumpkin, toasted biscuit, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and herbal/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Good balance and solid robustness of bready malt, pumpkin, and spice flavors; with no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth and slightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is ok. A little watered down feeling in mouthfeel, but not bad. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very solid pumpkin ale. All around good balance and solid robustness/complexity of bready malt, pumpkin, and spice flavors; and very smooth to drink. A pleasantly enjoyable offering.

Awesome pumpkin beer. I'd buy this again. Pair it with some pumpkin ice cream. Pumpkin beer float.

Bottle. Allspice, pumpkin and cinnamon candle. Thin. Not very tasty. Definitely not something I would drink again.

From a bottle. Pours hazy copper with a bubbly off white head. Smells like roasted pumpkin, light spice, light alcohol, and nutty malt. Tastes like musky, nutty malt, dry roasted pumpkin, toasted grains, and a light sweetness.

Taste are semi-sweet malt upfront then pumpkin and balanced spices. Palate was soft smooth CO2 with light-medium body, then sweet balanced spicy finish. Overall, solid pumpkin brew just touch to sweet.

they did a great job with heavy use of pumpkin and spices to cover up what would be a very boring beer. low on "beer", high on spice. still thin, but if you like pumpkin and allspice, this oneís for you."

Pumpkin flesh, an interesting blend of spices, and capped with a light body that does not compromise flavor. The body isnít pulpy or thick, and errs on the side of caution, but still offers a brisk, airy and pleasant seasonal bang.

Poured a dark caramel, auburn, hazy color with 1-to-2 fingers of creamy white head. A decent amount of wet foamy bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. Below average spots of foamy lacing on the sides of the glass. Below average retention on the top all the way down. (Sight - 3.61)

You know onetime, this asshole (and I canít even remember who or where) said that pumpkin pie wasnít "real pie". It hurt my feelings. It made me mad. I love pumpkin pie. I donít love this beer. Itís good. Itís balanced but monotone. Got it in a 6 pack sampler and thatís a perfect place for it. Drink one to try it. Write a review and move on.
