Can @ MJ’s house. Copper pour with a nice khaki head. Ginger, clove, caramel, and some toast. Some fruity esters, celery, bread, and pepper. Really sweet flavor. Candy, caramel, celery, and bread. Spicy ginger and clove notes. Maybe some cinnamon. Kind of papery and dusty on the finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear amberish copper with a thin fading head. Nose is sweet and pumpkin-pie like with a flakey crust, cinnamon, a touch of clove and a hint of ginger. Flavor falls a bit short with just too much reliance on pumpkin pie spices and not enough pumpkin goo.,

Tall Can. Pours orange with white frothy head. Smells very clovey, exactly like pumpkin pie. Tastes very very spicy- cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, sweet, really good! A really well done pumpkin beer!

nuts, bread, citrus, floral, clove, amber, orange, hazy, frothy, light sweetness, lightly bitter, medium body, lively. Overall very pleasant and satisfying. Not overly spice driven style. It conforms to their model of lighter styles and great drinkability

UPDATED: OCT 8, 2013 Tap @ Socorro Springs. Pours a touch hazy, orange appearance with a white head. Spicy, vanilla, cinnamon, caramel aroma. Pumpkin pie flavor worn notes of vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon, and allspice. Not too bad.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap "5 oz." sample (that could not have been more than 4 oz.) at Socorro Springs Restaurant & Brewery in Socorro, NM. Barkeep said ABV is 6%. Hazy copper-amber with no head or lacing. Aroma of pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves and pepper. Taste of sweet pumpkin pie with the typical nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves plus a dose of chili pepper that leaves a fiery aftertaste. Medium/light body and medium/low carbonation. OK, I’m not from the Southwest, but to my mind, pumpkin pie and chili peppers are not a good combination. A quite decent tasting pumpkin ale until the fire at the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft @ Socorro Springs. The color of pumpkin pie, burnt orange but clear. Apricot aroma signals having run through other line of fruit beer. The pumpkin and spice doesn’t come out. But they do in flavors. Thin. Nice pumpkin gourd meat. Not so spiced. Sweet. Even sugary. Pleasant enough but thin.
