12 ounce bottle. Amber orange color topped by a small creamy beige head. Light pumpkin and spice aroma. Toasted malt flavor has the expected cinnamon and nutmeg spiciness. Some hop bitterness in midtaste. Nice balance. Not overdone on spices. Decent pumpkin ale.

Appearance is light amber. Aroma isn’t too memorable. Taste is small hints of pumpkin with other spices. Overall an average, but decent, pumpkin ale.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle wth a BB Nov. 2014(?) date notch; so just purchased but perhaps a little past BB window.
Pours lightly hazy, orange-amber in color, with a decent semi-durable head that leaves some spotty lacing.
Aroma: suggest a nice mix of spices and light+medium malts.
Flavor: more spices here; a bit more than ideal in that the malts are mostly masked and the aftertaste emphasizes the spices.
Feel: medium-light body and medium carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Bottled on: 08/11/14 (I think). Pours a pretty dark orange with tons of chunky floaties and a beige head. Nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, cloves, caramel, vanilla, and hints of ginger dominate the pumpkin pie-like aroma. Goes down relatively thin to medium-bodied. Caramel and a touch of honey upfront in the taste. Vanilla in the middle. Crisp and kinda grainy at the tail-end with plenty of the aforementioned spices. Another enjoyable pumpkin brew.

This has a really great dark orange color but no suds. This is a very comforting beer with a strong but not overwhelming pumpkin flavor and spice. Nice weight in the palate and gentle carbonation.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
From the bottle, pours a clear reddish orange with virtually no head, just some bubbles that quickly dissipate. Smells like a pumpkin beer should, cloves and allspice, but also a little thin. The taste concurs, thin like a pilsner, but clean and drinkable. Notes of pumpkin pie, cloves, allspice. Not bad, but not my favorite pumpkin.
