bottle poured a brown amber color with an off white head. aroma has pumpkin pie spices, pumpkin, brown sugar, and caramel. mouth feel has a nice coating and a hefty body on a pumpkin with enough carbonation to keep it lively. flavor has nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, pumpkin, and brown sugar. this has a nice rich texture and the spicing is at a nice level that lets the thick pumpkin side get through.

Murky amber pour with good white head. Good lacing. Nice aroma of pumpkin pie that isnít overpowering. Very well rounded flavor. They found a nice balance of pumpkin pie spice and beer. One of the few pumpkin beers Iíve tried that didnít over do it. Good body but slight off-flavor on finish. Overall, one of the best pumpkin beers Iíve tried.

Draught into a snifter. Awesome pumpkin.... Beautiful deep gold color with a full finger head which held for a minute. Aroma of pumpkin, light spice and sweetness. Flavor is similar with light spice and mostly pumpkin. Light alcohol is noticeable. Body is light to medium with a nice lingering flavor. Definitely one of my favorites for the season

Bottle at Capones from Simon. Pours a nice amber pour with nice head. Aroma is funky sour. Taste is very true pumpkin flavor. Minimal spices give the vegetable flavor room to dominate the palate. Finishes clean. Best pumpkin beer Iíve had.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, thanks to my very generous trader friend dimenhetfield. Pours hazy tawny, 1-finger off-white head, moderately persistent, nice lacing. Nose is pumpkin, clove, cinnamon, red fruits, caramel, and asurprising yeast note. Flavours of spice, cardamom, clove, very pronounced yeast notem and surprisingly dry for a pumpkin beer. Nicely rounded body, strikes me as a well-rounded beer, if a bit simple and overly-yeasty. Rather clove-driven, especially in the finish. Nice, but not exceptional.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark copper color with virtually no head. Aromas of allspice, pumpkin and a small hint of alcohol. Flavors of pumpkin, caramel, toffee and a lot of spiciness. Relatively low carbonation with a slightly spicy finish. Definitely better than most pumpkin beers but itís not quite on the level of Pumking.
