Not a bad pumpkin beer, but the flavors did not do justice to the aroma. It tasted fine, but everything was very muted, and not as pronounced as I would have liked.

On tap at The Ale House.
Appearance: Light hazy copper body with a creamy tan head.
Aroma: Mild aroma with hints of cinnamon and pumpkin. Has the aroma of gutting a pumpkin.
Taste: Pumpkin with mild spices. Very bland.
Palate: Medium bodied, moderately carbonated.
Overall: Another mediocre pumpkin beer. The world definitely doesnít need another.

12 oz bottle from Jason. Nothing special. Aroma and taste on the weak side. Much better pumpkin beers on the market compared to this one.

Draft. Hazy amber brown color, small off white head. Aroma is subtle mixed spice and gourd. Taste is malt forward, spice in the background, and a bit of fruit. Not bad.

Six pack from Manchester CT. Pours out a clear light amber with frothy light tan head. Aroma of roasty malts and pumpkin. Spice is kept well in check and this one is very smooth and drinkable with a lingering roasty-spice finish.

Poured a hazy amber orange with a thin head of loose tan foam. There was a burst of bubbles after the pour then a steady stream of effervescence. Nose is lightly sweet malt and a light spice. Nutmeg, allspice and a little ginger. Some sweet biscuit. I am not getting a lot of pumpkin but itís faint int he background. Taste is dry biscuit with a nice toasted malt sweetness. Light spice. The carbonation is very strong and the body of the beer is thin so it drinks a little watery and a lot like soda. Thereís a touch of pumpkin flavor that becomes stronger as it warms and a mild bitter finish that is dry and tasty.
The nose on this one is very pleasing but the drink is too thin. It was just ok.
