Tap at Capones. Pours a hazy golden amber with a medium bubbly creamy head that laced. Aroma of a nice mix of pumpkin pie spices, pumpkin, toasted malt and some grains. Flavor had a lot of cinnamon, nutmeg, lots of pie spices, pie crust and nuts.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to tampapourhouse for the share. Pours orange with a white head. Nose is pumpkin, allspice, sugar, slight vanilla, and slight booze. Flavor is similar with lingering pumpkin and spice. Better than the average pumpkin beer, but not as good as a Pumking or a Good Gourd.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 ounce. Big pumpkin aroma and spice. Heavy carbonation. Given that it was probably bottled last October, itís held up really well and the spices are all dominant.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bomber - $4.99 at Bullockís Wine & Spirits in Marietta, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a clear, robust dark orange body with a susdy, frothy, ivory-colored head. It thins down into a fine, thin layering, though it has some nice staying power.
Smell: Well-spiced, bready nose with plenty of chunky pumpkin notes. Itís a nicely fragrant bowl stirred up with brown sugar, cinnamon, and bread crumbs is what it is.
Taste: Itís bready, sweet, and spicy. Dry, crumbly, lightly toasted bready malt profile generously coated in dark brown sugar and cinnamon and nutmeg. This one has just the right amount of pumpkin flesh flavor. Mildly bitter though with a restrained hop character, allowing for the spices to shine. The very faintest touch of warming alcohol nearing the end. Drying, spicy finish with a faint, lingering taste of pumpkin.
Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: A good, admirable, though not great pumpkin brew, but I will certainly say it exceeded my modest expectations after the lackluster showing of the previous members of the Mutiny Fleet. Give it a try, provided youíre a fan of pumpkin ales!

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
22 oz bomber from EZ Liquors. Pours an orangey/amber with a smaller white head that quickly and totally disipates. The aroma on this one is the best thing about this beer, lots of spice, pumpkin, vanilla extract and alcohol. Fuller bodied with lots of alcohol warming, a bit too much if I may say so. Flavor is lots of spices, lots of alcohol and the pumpkin is present but not as apparent as the overspiceing and over kill ABV. The overpowering alcohol on this one really takes over the aroma, palate and flavor...spicey pumpkin alcohol bomb.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from Gillyís, 11/16/09
Aroma: The aroma has some of the nice pumpkin spice and other spice characteristics I like in this style
Appearance: A mostly clear orange color with a thin lasting head, and light, drippy lace
Flavor: The taste is also lots of spice malts with a nice hop backing, spice is more cinnamon and nutmeg then pumpkin
Palate: The carbonation is pretty high for this beer, the mouthfeel is pretty nice, and a bit dry, and a bit of alcohol feel
This is a pretty good Pumpkin beer, but my main complaint is that the pumpkin spice is not as predominant as I would like it to be. That is only a minor compliant though, as I did enjoy this beer. As winter beers start to show up more, and this style is less available in stores, I can already tell Iím about to start missing the pumpkin beers. This is a quite good one.
