Bottle. The pour was a cloudy medium orange with a brownish hue and had an average sized (1-2 finger) white fizzy head that was gone in a matter of seconds and had virtually no lacing to speak of.
The aroma was light to say the least of a light bread malt and a mild doughy yeast with hints of nutmeg, pumpkin and a little allspice.
It tasted extremely lightly sweet with a small presence of nutmeg and cinnamon at first then had a mild touch of pumpkin show up and became a little acetic (vinegary) at the end with the flavor only sticking around for a very short while.
Mouthfeel was very light in body and watery in texture with a fizzy carbonation.
Overall a Pumpkin Ale that was super light in flavor, even so you could taste the pumpkin and spices. But it did have a mild vinegar presence at the finish which was unusual for this type of beer. I was also surprised to see it come in a twist off bottle.

12oz bottle @ Knife and Fork (Atlantic City) for 4 year anniversary. I had everything else on the menu before so don't judge!.... Yea that means you Dave! Pours a clear burnt orange color with very minimal fizzy off white head. Aroma of toasted malts and lots of pumpkin pie spices. Taste is slightly yeasty, sour citrus, grain, and pumpkin pie spice.

Got a 6-pack of this one at Walgreens in Vegas. Pours a hazy golden-amber colour with a fizzy warm cap that disappears quickly and leaves not much lace. Smells like pumpkin purée at first, but then the spices come out (cinnamon, nutmeg). Same for taste with just a little sourness, and less spices. Seems like a decent brew for those who prefer more pumpkin than spices.

8/26/2010. From bottle. Pumpkin, malt and spice aromas. A little sticky sweet. Sweet flavors from the pumpkin, but somewhat muted. Meh...

My favorite pumpkin ale. I was surprised to see such a low rating from everyone, since I really enjoyed this beer.

A new pumpkin I’ve never seen. Jazzy orange brown with no real head or lace. Aroma is vegetal with hints of spice, taste follows, more pumpkin than pie. Not bad, but nothing special.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a clear orange color with a pretty much nonexistent head. Aroma is cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and little bit of sweetness. Taste is faint pumpkin and spice. If the taste was more intense this would be outstanding. Texture is watery which subtracts from overall appeal.

Not bad! No head, but a nice seasonal cloudy orange hue. Slightly hoppy, an understated pumpkin flavor, but good on an October evening.

Cloudy orange with almost no head. Fairly rich in pumpkin aroma but watery mild taste with less autumn spices than most other pumpkin beers. Sour to rancid after taste ruins the beer though.
