Pours a hazy orange with a thin off white head. Aroma is nutmeg and pumpkin pie. Taste is a tad bitter on the backend with a nice pumpkin flavor throughout. Has an aggressive carbonation in the mouth. Very nice.

The aroma is of vegetable and cinnamon. The appearance is a cloudy amber with a thin head. The taste is of vegetable as well maybe a slight spice. Easy to drink, but overall not one of the best.

Bottle from Antenna America. Lots of pumpkin and spice, countered by the light body and carbonation. Not quite sure though. Feels like a bit of citrus hoppiness in there too. Interesting but not sure about it.

3.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at Chatterbox while playing Battleship and Candyland. Aroma is big on the traditional pumpkin pie spices especially nutmeg and cloves. Pours mostly as a golden orange. Little head. Taste actually pulls back on the pumpkin flavors which is disappointing. Dry finish. Mouthfeel is quickly dissipating. Good, but better pumpkin options available.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from CBB. Brewing a Kabocha beer so figured I’d drink some pumpkin beer as well. Served in a lager glass. It pours a copper-orange color with minimal head but a nice pumpkin like color. Big coriander & clove aroma with possibly mild nutmeg. Decent flavor a bit nutty, pumpkin flesh and pretty balanced spices with cinnamon and allspice. Medium bodied with a bit of a chewy mouthfeel. Maybe it’s because I’ve been eating kabocha all day but I do get that pumpkin flesh flavor and solid squash nuttiness. I like it. It is much more subdued than your average US pumpkin beer though I think.

Pours pale straw white with a little haze. Aroma is pretty strong bananas, wheat. Flavor is pretty light, not much going on. Kinda boring, but not bad.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a mostly clear orange golden with a fine off-white head that quickly disappears. I like the nose. Some pumpkin, good spices, nutmeg, some clove, hint of candied ginger. Taste is spiced with clean light pumpkin notes and a nice dry finish with some lingering nutmeg pumpkin spice. Palate is bright and med- body. A good intro pumpkin beer.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nearly clear gold pour with a thin white head. Aroma of pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, extra ginger, caramel, lemon and light bready yeast. Flavor is caramel and a surprising toast/cereal note up front, then a pretty large dose of earthy and sweet pumpkin, toffee, a little raw, doughy yeast and honey-like sweetness. Medium body, chewy to oily entry, medium carbonation and oily finish. Decent overall, good malt, pumpkin and spice notes, but as it warms it gets a bit messy with some higher alcohol notes coming out.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
I'm surprised this is only rated a 3.14. It's a pretty darn good pumpkin ale. Aroma is not anything special. Color is a bright orange. Initial taste is crisp and refreshes the palate. Light on the spices, but enough to let you know it's fall. I could definitely drink it all night.
