Bomber. Pours slightly hazy orange color with smallish white head. Aroma is mostly spices, nutmeg, cinnamon, with some biscuity malt background. Tastes mostly spicy, sweet caramel also with just a hint of pumpkin/squash/earthy notes. Not very pumpkin, but the spice profile is there. Good, but not great.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is very sweet. Appearance is burnt orange with little to no head. Taste starts sweet with a bitter finish. It’s almost as if a sweet pumpkin - ie Pumpking meets a more traditional & bitter pumpkin. Overall, a tasty brew and a nice effort from Heavy Seas.

Malty aroma has a firm overtone of pumpkin and cinnamon - very October indeed. It pours a slightly hazy coppery amber with a thin pale pumpkin-orange head, but the condition of the head may be an artifact of the pour. Lip-smacking malty flavor has firm tones of pumpkin and cinnamon with hints of cloves and fruit and a bit of an alcohol nip. Texture has above average body and is smooth with a subtle fizz, leaving an edgy, malty, pumpkin finish. Perfect for this time of year!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a slightly red amber color with a thin off-white head that faded quickly. Aroma has lots of pumpkin and spices. Nutmeg and almonds. Taste is very creamy with lots of pumpkin and more nutmeg. Finish is a bit hoppy with more spices and some warming alcohol. Overall it’s slightly sweet, but the balance is still good. The finish is a little syrupy however. Overall a decent pumpkin beer.

750ml bottle split with some friends. A lot of pumpkin spice in the aroma, reminded me a lot of pumpkin cream pie, if such a thing exists. Compared to the BA version of this beer I’d probably say they’re just about equal.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear orange/amber with a medium light tan head. Aroma has nice doughy notes, notable pumpkin, and just the right amount of spice. Flavor follows suit but adds caramel, a bit more spice, and a hint of booziness. Mouthfeel is oily with a boozy spiced finish that warms.

A decent pumpkin ale falls short of the pumking by Southern Tier IMO. A good pumkin palate will leave you satisfied.
