Bottle. Light orange color. Small head, no lace and lots of tiny bubbles. Aroma is typical pumpkin ale, not as strong. Taste, also typical pumpkin ale but kind of bland.

At the brewpub for $3 pints, and started out with this one. My first (and probably only) Pumpkin Ale of the season. Came out a deep dark orange, with a nice frothy cap. The nose is sweet with pumkin spice, nutmeg, cinnamon - not surprising. Slick feel. Sweet pumpkin, that isnít as artificial-tasting as I remember. The pumpkin is also a little more subtle, but in its place there is an overwhelming spice profile, that isnít all that refreshing. All-in-all though, itís not a bad autumn drink, but I couldnít see myself having any more than 1 of these at a time, or even more than 1 in a season for that matter.

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

Maybe a bad pour/batch. But not a superstrong pumpkin ale. The elements were there, but just was not balanced well. Too much cinnamon too, and flat taste. Iíll pass over for better pumpkin options.

Purchased on vacation at Atlantic Beach, NC 2013. Pumpkin spice clove scent, lacking appearance due to little head, lighter body crisp feel, with a pumpkin nutmeg fronted taste some ginger sneaking in on the back end. Overall, a decent pumpkin.

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. Itís all vaguely synthetic smelling, but it doesnít 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 wonít have another one, but I didnít mind this.
