While i am not a big fan of pumpkin beers this is one that i would tell people that they might want to try. It has some spice to it and you can really taste the pumkin flavor.

Pours light amber/orange with a thin off white head. Smells of yogurt, some spice and pumpkin. Taste is very pumpkin with some spicey notes. Thick full mouthfeel but lacking in the spices I tend to enjoy in pumpkin ales.

From the bottle this beer poured an orange/brown color with a tan head which had good retention adn lacing. The taste was of brown sugar and all spice with some pumkin. There was an after taste of all spice.

Bottle. Pours clear golden/amber with a small off white head. Sweet alcohol, nutmeg and ginger spices, and Budweiser. Thin bodied, pretty bland, nice semi-roasty sweetness. Being generous I would call this average.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap @ Papago. Spice aroma that really seemed dull. Orange body with no head. Beer had a ordinary spice and malt texture. Odd beer felt like I was lift a weight instead of glass.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Smells and looks great. Aromas are muy spicy... cinnamon, pumpkin pie, mildly grainy... color is a great deep reddish amber with a nice head that doesn’t stick around too long. Flavor is great up front, a sweet pumpkin pie, but then falls apart a little bit at the end. As the warmth of the alcohol takes over, there is a mildly astringent flavor that isn’t quite right. That said, the flavor up front is quite nice and more than makes up for the problems at the end...

Smells like a freshly-opened stick of Dentyne. Pasty, moderately sweet, spicy. Decent malting. Not my cup of tea.

04 Bottle (yeah its old - I’ll rerate with a fresh one if I can). Dark orange pour. Earthy pumpkin aroma with spices. A little doughy too. Less pumpkin in the flavor tho, with a lot more allspice and nutmeg. Perhaps the muted pumpkin flavor comes from its age.

Draft, Mad Mex in State College. Low aroma, nice amber-red color, a bit spicier than I expected.
