2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Decent taste considering the lack of aroma. The alcohol in this one is fragrant and pungent, and the balance is a bit off. Not enough spices, and the malt is barely there. The best thing about this beer is the taste, though, which is a decent enough point to save it a little teeny bit. I liked the packaging, too.

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.

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.

Pours a clear amber with a small, creamy head. Pumpkin pie aromas: Cinnamon, clove, pumpkin. Taste is a little muddled, not something you would ask for again.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle from Whole Foods in Redwood City, CA. Pours a medium to dark amber. Aroma is squash, dirty water, some cinnamon. Flavor is watery, earthy, clay, squash. Stale pumpkin pie flavoring in a moldy, water-downed 711 slurpee found in a dumpster. Minus all the good stuff.

This is a good cheap little beer. Itís nothing fancy. Nice smell of pumpkin and pumpkin spice taste. Squash taste is detectable as well. It could be better it could be worse. Iím enjoying it!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a tulip glass. The label lists the abv at 5.2 % abv.
Appearance: The body has a cloudy, deep orange amber color with a small quick fading head on top. The head fades out completely despite lots of visible carbonation rushing to the surface.
Smell: It has some light spice and light squash with a light fruity candy like maltiness. Overall light but balanced.
Taste / Palate: Like its aroma it has a light body with thin pumpkin pie spice and light squash like pumpkin notes. Hop flavor and bitterness are very low. The palate is light and well carbonated making it easy to drunk.
Notes: It is definitely not the most complex pumpkin beer but there are no unpleasant or off flavors. The highlight to this beer is that I could drink quite a few of these in a session unlike some of the heavier spiced pumpkin ales.
