A little bit of pumpkin and spice in it, watery and relatively flavorless otherwise.

(Bottle at GABF) good lacing, clear gold color. Nose of real pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg. Taste of brown sugar, pumpkin mash, cinnamon and a bit funky. Decent pumpkin beer.

On tap, at the Old Mill Tavern, Chester NJ. Lines were clean. I was initially very excited to see a new ícraftí beer on tap here at my favorite tavern. Pour was medium brown, with a decent lively head but poor retention. Pumpkin aroma was strong. Beer attacks sweet - and way to simple. Iím not a big imperial pumpkin fan anyway, but at least most of those back up the pumpkin aroma and/or taste with a complicated spicy sweetness. This beer seemed watery with some spice thrown in, with a cottonmouth aftertaste. Not recommended.

Given to me for free at beer store when buying real pumpkin beers. This is busch heavy with a dash of old flat allspice. Drain pour. I wouldve drank it but i have a large backlog of beer to try and its a waste of time.

Reviewed from notes. Pours brown with an off white head. Smell brings forward some spicing, and itís not too overly done; just a bit. A bit of caramel and a bit of brown sugar. Taste brings more spices. Feel is medium with moderate carbonation. Drinks fairly well and isnít a terrible representation of the style. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 10-08-2010

Amber pour. The nose is intensely spicy with lots of cinnamon and clove over a nice amber malt base. A little bit of sweet malt aroma as well. Fortunately the flavour is nowhere as sweet as it smells. Medium-bodied. A nice lingering sweet spiciness with a kiss of lingering earthiness on the back. Well-balanced and quite tasty. Not a bad pumpkin ale at all.

Had this beer about 3 years ago at a halloween party. Decent overall beer with a pumpkin spice to it. Aroma is obviously pumpkin spice

Poured into a pint glass. 4.0 A: Reasonably attractive. Nice frothy head with decent retention. Orange amber in color. Decent amount of lacing. 3.5 S: Pumpkin pie with all the spices (cinnamon foremost). Sweet malty tones. 3.0 T: Surprisingly not too bad. Not the greatest beer backbone, but alright. Bready malts and a hint of hop bitterness. Spiced, but not overly so (I like overspiced pumpkin beers). 2.0 M: Light body. Good carbonation, just not hearty enough. I like thick, chewy pumpkin beers. This one disappoints in that regard. 3.0 D: Not terrible, but not something Iíd want to drink much of. Iím surprised I like this as much as I do. Michelobe has to be one of the worst brands in beer. P.S. I didnít buy this, it was a gift. I feel compelled to mention that. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 12-03-2008 03:48:36

Copper/orange in color. Clear. Tons of bubbles rising. White, fizzy, thin head that hung around for only a short minute, then settled to a thin ring. A bit of lacing. Sweet smelling malt. Cinnamon and gingerbread. Not getting a whole lot of the pumpkin. Some is there, but not much. The sweet smell is a touch overpowering to me. A little more of the pumpkin in the taste, but it seems to be dominated by the cinnamon and ginger. Some additional spices of somekind. Maybe the clove. Just a bit too sweet for my liking. It does taste a bit artificial to me also. Adjuncts, I guess? Medium/thin mouthfeel. Doesnít leave an over abundance on the palate. It is smooth, but it is also mostly watery. This is a brew that I will probably never drink again. Too sweet and artificial tasting. Some may find it enjoyable, but I just donít care for it.

Clear orange-amber with a small white head. Smells like caramel malt and toejam with spices. Taste is a little pumpkin spice (nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger...), but mostly its sweet malt. Body is closer to medium than Iíd expect, given the brewer, but it feels like its leaving a chalky film on the back of my teeth. Itís definitely one of A-Bs better beers, but I still wouldnít go so far as to call it good.
