4pk of the new logo bottles poured into a snifter. Pours a light see-through orange with a foamy disappearing off-white head. Aromas of pumpkin, nutmeg, clove, slight vanilla. Flavors follow through finished by a malty caramel. One of the better beers in this style as it is not over spiced like they tend to be. Good beer if you’re in the mood for a pumpkin seasonal.

12oz bottle that poured a deep copper to orange color with white head. a mild lacing on the glass with soft carbonation. the aroma leads the nose to cinnamon, yams, sugars and pumpkin. medium body with nice malt flavor with cinnamon, brown sugar, pumpkin, yams. the alcohol is well hidden but you do get a slight burn on the end. overall pretty good pumpkin beer. flavors are evenly balanced throughout.

This is the beer that started my pumpkin beer craze some ten years ago, still as good as that first time. Four packs of pumpkin beers are the way to go, 99% off the time you get what you pay for!

Not much of a head, darker golden color. Nose of malt and pumpkin pie spice. Taste is pretty much the same. Not bad for a pumpkin beer. But it's a pumpkin beer, which always sounds like a great beer to have on a cooler early fall day but never fails to disappoint. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottled. Pours a brilliant orange with a new pillowy white head. Aroma is tons of pumpkin, cinnamon, brown sugar. Pumpkin, cinnamon sweetness and a slight booziness at the end. Also a nice little bit of mouth feel.

Beerowulf (74) - , Indiana, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Shaker poured from bottle. aroma and taste of nutmeg and cinnamon. Very little pumpkin if any. A nice spice aftertaste. No lacing. A bit overpriced in a 4 pack, but demand is high for this. A good pumpkin ale/brown ale but not all that.

This is the pumpkin beer that I compare all others to. A balanced pumpkin flavor to the spices used and at 7% has no alcohol burn.

Solid. Spicy Banana-y aroma fills the air as soon as it’s poured. Strong spicy bubblegum aroma. Very flavorful with a smooth finish, carbonation adds a little prickleyness though. Flavor - get a lot of bubblegum, cinnamon, thanksgiving spices, pretty hearty as a whole. Yummy!!

Cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin, mild herbaceous bitterness, flashes of mild citrus, chalky brown sugar. Little overcarbed for my taste.
