3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
One of the most orange looking beers Iíve ever had. Verges on Gatorade-like. An aggressive pour yielded a healthy looking head that disappeared within about a minute.
Pumpkin and a little malt. Straight up. You may think I mean pumpkin pie. I donít. Just pumpkin. The raw, fruiting body of plants from the Cucurbita genus.
Very odd. Seems to focus more on the plant itself, rather than the spices that complement it. Theyíre there, but the raw pumpkin itself is center stage. Itís very malty and sweet with intense pumpkin flavor, but the spices donít come out in a big way until the finish.
Iíd seen this one all over the place and had been meaning to give it a try. Itís certainly something unusual; the malt and raw pumpkin flavors seem to give this beer a sort of dual nature- sweet and mellow, but bright and fruity. Itís interesting beer, but Iím not quite sure what to make of it.

This beer was very disappointing for Dogfish Head. The pumpkin was very faint. It almost appeared to be paired with a lager.

I poured it from the bottle into a glass. It pours orange and amber with a small, white head. The aroma is subtle for a pumpkin beer with hints of pumpkin and spice. The taste is subtle on pumpkin at first. As it warms, the pumpkin is more pronounced. You get the cinnamon and nutmeg too. It tastes more like a brown at times. It goes down pretty easy for the alcohol content.

Fresh bottle from the keg ín bottle store in San Diego. Clear ruby color. Good head. Aroma is tricky. Once the head vanishes it smells like a bud light or any other corn rice crap beer. When you stir it it smells like spices, pumpkin, cinnamon. Taste is completely different. Malty, pumpkin, spicy, cinnamon, some dark bitter fruits. Controversial beer in my opinion. Overall tasty.
