Fairly light for a pumpkin beer but this is good enough for the style. Some weird aftertastes

Overwhelming spice and underwhelming pumpkin. Might have been more tolerable a bit warmer on a cool fall evening- just doesn’t taste like spring. Pours a decent copper color with a small head (actually looked great). Nose is all spice. Too much nutmeg and a bit sharp with the ginger. A bit of an unpleasant sweetness as well. I prefer to have beer with a slice of pumpkin pie- rather than the two -in-one package as offered here.

Ugly BMC-esque gold pour w/zero heard or lace. Smells ok, some spices, pumpkins in the background. Tastes off. A kiss of tartness (wtf?!) then turns watery. Julie nailed it: tastes like a pumpkin Kolsch.
Wtf Foothills, I expect better from you guys.

Bottle. Nice fall color, orange-amber, with a thin head. The pumpkin aroma gets to the olfactory glands as soon as the cap’s off the bottle. The beer drinks with a nice balanced delivery of some gourd, cinnamon and spice. Decent. (#5322, 11/10/2013)

Tap. Amber with small head. Light, thin body, but spicing is well done with a lot of clove.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear, muted orange with hardly any head. The aroma is bright and sweet. Lots of nutmeg and pumpkin. It’s all vaguely synthetic smelling, but it doesn’t smell bad at all. Kiinda like a pumpkin scented candle. The flavor is rich and slightly sweet. More of that pumpkin flavor that seems artificial but not unpleasant. I won’t have another one, but I didn’t mind this.

3.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pumpkin and spice are the primary aromas. Pours a clear amber with a thin lasting white head and no lacing. The tastes is spice dominate. Cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice with hints of pumpkin. Medium-light body with crisp carbonation. Overall, ok but I have had more balanced pumpkin ales.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma: Pumpkin is a little obscured by nutmeg, ginger and clove, but the spices are very pleasant. Appearance: Still copper body with a ring of bone coloured head. Flavor: Really quite gingery and sharp; flavors seem at war instead of in harmony. The ginger wins. Palate: Light body, slick texture, flat carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: An uneven showing. Thanks to my friend Robert for bring a bottle back from his travels.

Poured from bottle. Aroma of overripe pumpkin and spice. Cider colored, flat. Decent pumpkin flavor with nutmeg, cinnamon and brown sugar. Quite under carbonated. Good flavor but may have been old
