Bottle from Total Wine. Pours a hazy orange body under a half inch of off-white head. Slightly sour aroma of toast and subtle spice. Flavors of apple, toast, squash, and malts. Medium carbonation & medium body. Not bad.

First pumpkin beer of the season. I could have had one in July but decided to wait until October. Anyways a relatively nice, smooth, easy to drink seasonal. Murky orange color. Decent amount of cinnamon and pumpkin spice in a good balance. Touch of sweetness.

Golden orange pour into the glass, with a wispy head that reduces to a thin ring of suds. The nose is of nutmeg first, with extraneous spices secondary, and pumpkin meat tertiary. Flavors are similar, with spices subtly integrated, very light pumpkin notes, with a dry spiced finish. The activity in the mouth comes from the spice integration, and makes for a pretty smooth pull, minus the semi-hollow palate and seltzer body. Not the most complex pumpkin brew, sure, but a nice attempt otherwise.

Finally a pumpkin beer I actually like. It’s clean and refreshing and doesn’t hit you over the head with pumpkin and spices. Strangely a bit bitter upfront but nice finish. Golden yellowish orange appearance with a weak head.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap. Hazy orange-amber with a lasting smattering of foam. Mild aroma of pie spices and caramelized pumpkin. Taste has more spice than I like but not as overpowering as some. Can taste a bit of pumpkin and gummy wheat on the finish. Near-medium body is tingly with the spices but smoothly carbonated. To the sweet side.

Bottle purchased at Crafted Drafts. Clear orange pour with a medium off-white head. Aroma of cinnamon, ginger, cream and slight esters. Spicy and malt flavor up front, giving way to brown sugar before a thin, semi-dry finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Enjoy by: 12/15/13. A hazy copper pour with a small beige head. Pumpkin pie with all the usual spices, vanilla cream, caramel, and brown sugar comprise the aroma. Medium-bodied. Creamy pumpkin pie, caramel, and plenty of vanilla upfront in the taste. A toasted/mildly burnt graininess is present at the end. Some gingerbread and pumpkin pie spice too. A surprising amount of booziness is present given the relatively low ABV. Alright.
