Bottle. Nose is sweet malt with mild pumpkin and spice overload - nutmeg, allspice, lesser cinnamon and ginger. Pours a neon and lightly hazy orange with short beige head. Crisp fullish body is relatively dry, some sweetish malt but not a ton of it, relatively thin flavor profile with suppressed hops and thankfully restrained spice additions (which seem to mostly have impacted the nose), though those spices are as clear as day. Pumpkin comes out more with volume and contemplation, smidgen of vanilla, trace of gummy yeast slurry along with pleasant mild clover honey. I learned to appreciate this more by the time I reached the bottom of the glass -- itís about par for the course as far as these things go, but fresh and even spot-hitting.

Ar: Classic pumpkin spice, sweet cinnamon and nutmeg - toasted caramel.
Ap: Clear orange-amber - medium off-white head with good retention, leaves suds and a thin film of lacing.
T: Pumpin spice, with some sweet caramel backing - soapy - low bitterness - finish is more pumpkin spice, some artificial sweetener flavor.
P: Medium body with medium-high carbonation - finish is dry.
O: Some promise on the nose, and some decent flavors, but it falls flat ultimately - the artificial sweetener and soapy flavors detract.

The pumpkin was hiding somewhere, it certainly wasnít in my glass. Flavor and aroma were lacking but it did drink very smooth. This brew misses the mark

12 ounce bottle, best before October 2013. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a clear orange/amber color with about a half inch off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both decent enough. The brew smells like pumpkin spices (nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger) and pumpkin. Taste is the same as the aroma, it tastes like pumpkin spices and pumpkin. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, itís a bit slick and has moderate carbonation. I think itís a solid pumpkin beer, but not one of my favorites. Still, I wonít have any problems finishing this sixer. $9.99 a six-pack.

12 ounce thanks to Ed. Amber. Lots of nutmeg and cinnamon. Very much a pumpkin beer. Bit of brown sugar carries taste to the end.

Pours clear orange into a shaker. White head with medium retention recedes to skim surface. Sweet nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger aromas. Thin with pumpkin upfront turning dry in lasting nutmeg finish.

My first pumpkin beer of the season so I canít start complaining yet. And this oneís actually decent with nice integration of clove, ginger and gourd. Pours orange with a little head and lacing. Average carbonation. Finishes slightly sweet from malt and spice. Tap at brewpub.

Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a murky orange-caramel color with a trace white head that faded instantly and left no lacing. The aroma was sweet cinnamon sugar, nutmeg and a hint of toasted caramel. The flavor was sweet caramel, bread, cinnamon and nutmeg. Long sweet caramel, cinnamon and nutmeg finish. Moderately full bodied though a bit undercarbonated. Ok.

pours a dark copper to medium brown, aroma is spicy and flavour is as well, it was a bit light on the spices and it finished with kind of strong ale like flavour, it was fairly thick and not too smooth, overall it was an okay offering
