light gold color. aroma of pumkins and nutmeg spice. Not much pumpkin taste, the nutmeg and spice flavors kind of overwhelm. Not bad for a lager style.

Poured a usual light orange color, weak initial head, no retention or lacing to really speak of. The aroma was pumpkin and light grass / corn notes. The flavor was mostly like a pumpkin pilsner (honey, grassy) with significant citrus notes. With warmer temperatures, the pumpkins came on stronger. Mouthfeel was a touch acidic, finishing with only gentle spicing zing in the mouth. A pretty ho hum pumpkin beer, although not bad.

Bottle sampled. Pours copper with a small white head. Aroma of spices, pumpkin, and slight cookie dough. The flavor is sweet, pumpkin, spices, and grain. Mild traces of hops, thin brew.

Ugh. I hate pumpkin beer. I think that they are all pretty much horrible, but this one just might take the cake. Hazy, burnt orange-amber body. Small white head settles to a thin film with a prominent rim. Sudsy lace does not stick around for long. The aroma is something out of a nightmare I once had. Boiled pumpkin juice is accompanied by nutmeg, cinnamon, coriander, and clove. Melted butter shows on a deep inhale, as does an unexpected and unwelcome celery smell. It takes everything I have to muster up enough courage to sip this. Double ugh. The flavor is downright offensive. Its like taking a bite out of a raw pumpkin covered in celery salt. Watery body. Horrible, vegetal aftertaste. Mommy, please make it stop! DRAIN POUR!
