From bottle. Orange in color with thin white head. Aroma is all spice. Typical pumpkin spices. Taste is similar with a light body. .

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

A: Pumpkin. spice. cinnamon.
A: looks ok. Brownish amber color. Little head.
T: Tastes alright. A little weak. Pumpkin is hardly noticable. Lots of spice. Finish is dull.
P: A little dull. Thin. Not bad... too spicy.
Overall this is an ok beer. Pumpkin beers are always a little hit and miss... mostly miss. This is an alright easy drinking beer but nothing special.

Bought from Winslow’s on 09/30/13. Pumpkin pie with cinammon on the nose. I can see the whipped topping but cannot smell it. Orange hue with off-white mostly diminishing head with normal clarity. Virtually no lacing. Heavy bitter cinammon and spice up front with more nutmeg on the finish. Fizzy on the palate, light body.

Spicy aroma, nice pumpkin color, almost clear. Moderate pumpkin flavor with an easy hop nip. Clean finish.

A solid, balanced spiced ale. This is more about the spices (dominant) then the pumpkin (secondary) flavors. Smooth, easy drinking, Glad to see this being brewed back in NC by people who really love making beer.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle poured into a snifter. The aroma took me by surprise because it came off a little more floral than pumpkin. Appearance, poured a nice copper color with minimal head. Taste is slightly pumpkin. Even the spice is pretty insignificant. I like the lighter mouthfeel, but the flavor is a little lacking. I like that is not overly sweet life a lot of pumpkin beers, but it leaves a little too be desired in full pumpkin flavor. Overall, I would drink it again, but it’s not my go-to fall seasonal.
