Thanks, Chris! Served in a mug. Pours a clear light golden. Huge head. So much so that we thought it might have been infected, but alas, it’s just overcarbonated. Nose is a spice bomb with lots of cinnamon and backing pumpkin spice. Flavor is similar to apple jacks and way overspiced. Not a fan at all.

Pours a gold amber, loads of carbonation and a thin cream head. Spiced pumpkin aroma. Strong clove flavor with a little pumpkin, into cinnamon /nutmeg. Sticky mouthfeel.

Couple of pints on tap. Clear orange with a film of bubbles. Aroma of squash, caramel and some earthy spices. Tastes of the same with some resin, light pepper and wheat toast. Light-medium body is balanced and has smooth, medium carbonation. Like the subtlety of the spices that lets the pumpkin come through.

12-ounce bottle from Crown Liquors. Pours a surprisingly light-colored dark lager body with a thumbnail of frothy head that has good retention. Nice aroma of spices, especially nutmeg. Plenty more of the spice rack in the flavor: clove, subtle cinnamon, a bitter finish. Medium body and soft/medium carbonation. Certainly not my favorite representative of the style, but a decent brew.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
taster @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear medium amber, rim head and tiny dots of lace. Taste is light malt peppered with pumpkin spices. No real bittering at the end; the spices just drift away. Somewhat interesting, but lacks complexity and balance.

Aroma is pumpkin, spices and cinnamon. The flavor is spices, cinnamon, pumpkins, citrus, very mild vegetables and a tart/tangy/bitter finish.

light in color. Thin head. Light bodies with pretty noticeable pumpkin with subtle spice. Compared to other pumpkin beers this falls in the middle for me.

Not the best pumpkin. Average aroma and pours a very light brown. Pumpkin taste is suble . Drinkable but not memorable.

Some pumpkin, not an overpowering aroma. Taste is pumpkin, grainy vegetable, small amounts of spice. Decent pumpkin beer

1.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Twelve ounce bottle from Whitey’s Wine and Liquor, tasted on October 26, 2013. Nice clear gold/amber color, moderate pumpkin/spice aroma, mostly bitter flavor with rank astringency dominating. Horrible--maybe it was spoiled, This was my first beer from Flat 12 Bierwerks and I’m not exactly dying to try another from there.
