Pours a cloudy orange with light frothy head. Aroma is sweet, spicy, with notes of pumpkin throughout. Flavor is light to moderately sweet with a bitter herbal finish. Overall a pretty average pumpkin beer but still tasty.

Nice orange, yes even pumpkin hue. Cinnamon, ginger, little earthy funky on the nose. In the mouth surprisingly blah. Spices don’t carry through. Not a lot of pumpkin. A bit of dirt carries through but on the whole rather bland for a pumpkin ale, and sorry of boring for a ale period.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle:   Darker shade of orangish straw, pale haze, thin to moderate frothy white head, spotty lacing.   Subtle malt on the nose, barely any spices.   Does have some sort of real pumpkin or gourd aroma, but its subtle.   Soft maltiness up front, lacks much depth in terms of spices, but its at least clean.   I can see this as an Autumn ale has it has a very soft indistinguishable spice that reminds me of an autumn floral bouquet during thanksgiving.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Snoozer of a finish.   Surprised this is that light for a Great Pumpkin Ale, coming in at only 4.4%.   Pretty boring, unfortunately.

UPDATED: DEC 11, 2013 Not too much pumpkin, not too much anything. Smooth and refreshing, this pours a clear deep amber with no head retention. Easy to consume, won?t annoy like most pumpkin ales.

Draft. Pours golden orange with a white head. Pumpkiny sweetness, pumpkin spice, and some lingering malty sweetness. Good stuff.

A: Mildly Hazy Orangish/Golden Straw Hue, Passes Most Light, White Head, Some Lacing

Overall, a pretty thin pumpkin ale, not overly spiced which is a good thing but not overly flavorful either.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy orange-brown pour with a 2 finger, creamy, soapy off white head. Aroma is caramel, pumpkin pie spice, pumpkin, light roast, cereal, hints of rustic grain and light spicy, floral and citrus hops. Flavor is full of cereal up front, then nice caramel, light toffee nuts, sweet and earthy pumpkin, light pumpkin pie spice, mostly ginger and allspice, a hint of earthy roast hay and herbal, floral and spicy hops. Light, creamy body with a light, blanketing and playfully wavy on the tongue carbonation. Really great stuff, not only great for a pumpkin beer, but an awesome session ale as well with plenty of flavor and a great mouthfeel at in an easy going and 4.4%abv package.

I am so tired of this style. People get all hyped up for this time of year and I’m not sure why. Pumpkin beers and Oktoberfests...meh. This one is very thin, leaves my tongue with a strange numbing feeling, and has slight allspice character.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Brilliant clear light orange. LIght fizzy head,leaving a ring fairly shortly after with light soapy/sugary lace.
Pungent aroma hop like pungency dankish earthy,light earthy light fruit tones. Mild Orange citrus. Refined complex spice. Light pie crust breadiness.Even some woody oak almost bourbon like quality to it. Quite impressive aroma for a pumpkin.
Taste is light medium body with light slickness,light caramel.Spice is a bit more in flavor with pumpkin tannin,fairly easy drinking and for only 4.4% this is really impressive on this lighter level. MIld orange tone. Nice mellow but noticable pumpkin flavor with the right amount of spice. All the flavors meld well and nothing really sticks out like most pumpkin ales when you get hit with a certain heavy spice.
