(Draught) Pours a clear orange body with a spare white head. Aroma of pumpkin, grain, and caramel. Flavor of corn, pumpkin, and caramel.

Tap at Blind Tiger. Man... if ever there was a concept that didn’t need conceiving, this is it. Clear orange-amber beer with a creamy white head. Aroma is extremely appley and cidery. Reminds me of an extra fresh Colt 45. I can still recall drinking the original version of this beer and that concoctions signature is all over this beer. Sticky sweet with notes of corn and pumpkin. Stanky cluster hops. As the beer warms, the pumpkiny flavour picks up quite a bit along with the higher fusely alcohols. Tastes just like I imagined it would. Fairly boozy on the back. It’s still substantially better than the original... but that ain’t saying much.

Aroma – Light pumpkin aroma. Very malty aroma also.
Appearance – Orange in color, Clear with a nice head. Added Yellow Dye #6.
Flavor – This was a malt liquor flavor with a very light pumpkin flavor lingering.
Palate – Nice Mouthfeel, Good texture with a dry finish.
Overall – This was OK Malt Liquor but this beer missed the flavoring I was looking for. Adding Yellow Dye #6 coloring are you kidding me? Sure the color was nice but this was scary to drink.

Draft @ Falling Rock Elysian pumpkin fest. Wow--this is a really tough beer to rate because they pulled it off so well and yet it’s absolutely disgusting! I love love love their sense of humor and that’s why overall score is way higher than it would be if this was not for trick-or-treat. Is red-orange (from the food coloring) and oily looking. Putrid plastic in the aroma is offensive, and to make it worse is a dollup of Crisco. This is serious crap, sort of a artificially sweetened candy character through and through. A putrid beer. Absolutely undrinkable.

Reddish-amber colour. Putrid aroma of alcohol and paint - they’ve really captured the Indian malt liquor aroma here. Tastes like a beer twice as strong. Fruity, slick, gluey...hits all the wrong notes. Humourously bad - reminiscent of 500ml cans of 12% subcontinental rocket fuel enjoyed behind a third world gas station outhouse.
