Bottle--my wife, who is not a beer drinker, declared it smooth. Looks perfect, dark amber, copper color with a medium head. The aroma is all spice with clove, no annoying cinnamon noted. No pumpkin noted in the taste, more of a brown ale with spices. Warming finish. Produce place.

750ml to snifter. Orange amber pour. Pumpkin and spice on the nose. Nice pumpkin flavor. Very sweet like pie and some definite spiciness on the finish.

Pours a hazy, dark honey amber color with a gigantic light tan head giving off an orangish hue. Marzen, pumpkin, and cinnamon nose. Smooth and moderately thick, sticky mouthfeel. Becomes sweeter as the beer progresses in the palate. Pumpkin pie flavors to the hilt. Also, a bit of flavor somewhere between Coke and root beer. Finishes with some needed bitterness. I appreciate the non-gimmickiness of this beer. The flavors convey genuine ingredients.

Bottle from MeadMe, thanks again!
Sweet caramel and brown sugar malty with a healthy does of pie spices. Its not the worst pumpkin beer I’ve ever had and it actually grew on me quite a bit.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours an orange-amber with a off-white head that has decent retention.
Aroma: Pumpkin nose with malt taking a background role. Hints of spicing; certainly not overdone.
Promising aroma is not followed by good taste. There is a nice bit of pumpkin/squash flavor, but it is surrounded by a rather unpleasant earthy gourd flavor.
Medium body with moderate carbonation.

Tap @ CCB Tampa Airport... Poured deep orange with a beige head. Nice lacing. No, I didn’t add the shot of Fireball to drop in my pour like the bartender suggested. Squash purée and spices in the nose. Great autumn spicing made this a delicious treat. Full bodied, moderate carbonation. And lots of sugars on this one. Finished with a pumpkin pie note.

Excellent pumpkin beer. Heavily spiced but not overly so. Comes in at the end rather than front loaded. Allows you a time to actually get the pumpkin. ABV is hidden pretty well. Not a huge fan of pumpkin beers but this is really good.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma: pumpkin, spice, and everything nice. seriously, pumpkin, clove, and a soft cinnamon note throughout. Call me crazy, but together, all of these things are reminiscent of freshly steamed sweet tamales. Amazing. Appearance: copper red. creamy white head. Taste: pumpkin, clove, cinnamon. Palate: thin, lively, finishes long and sweet.
