3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Single can from Lemon Tree. Kicks up a big puffy head with flecks of spice over a filtered orangeish-brown body. Smell is mostly pumpkin pie spice; the expected cinnamon and nutmeg. Taste carried forth that pie spice note. Except for a little sweetness in the caramel range, I can’t get much that says "pumpin" out of it. Finish comes in a bit more dry, but watery, too. Pleasant enough, but not something I’d show to my friends.

Bottle. Aroma of spices and pumpkin,but only faintly. Overall weak aroma. The taste is similar, a bit of a weak, watery taste but def. pumpkin and spice. This isn’t a bad beer, but actually pretty tasty. This is the perfect session pumpkin ale. Not a great beer, but it has a purpose lol! 6.8% alcohol.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Whole Foods, Bowery can ($2): Pours clear amber with off-white head. Aroma is light pumpkin spice and sugary malt, maybe a hint of vanilla. Taste is a little hoppy at the front with just a bit of spice throughout. Nondescript spicy aftertaste. Not great, but hardly drainpour.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. The pour is decent with its medium amber color and long lasting head. But it goes downward from there. If there is supposed to be pumpkin in the aroma I can’t find it. It’;s more buttery and cardboard in scent. Light to medium body. That’s alright. The taste has nothing one would expect from a pumpkin. It is very bland and cardboard-like. Kind of a disappointment from Cisco, whose brews I usually like.

I was hoping that the pumpkin offering from Cisco was going to be a nice, satisfying spicey brew, but, like the rest of the crappy lineup this fell way way short of anything interesting. No spice or pumpkin aroma, and it almost tastes like nothing with a sour finish. My palate is currently offended by this beer. I’m done wasting my hard earned money on this ever so terrible brewery!
