Wittales (693) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Appearance was clear pumpkin with diminishing rocky off white 1/2 finger head, no lacing. Aromas are spices of nutmeg, cinnamon, all spice, cloves with hints of sweet malt base. Lager yeasts let the spices shine. Taste are spices of before mention, light malt base with slight squash present with no alcohol. Palate was light with soft smooth CO2 with thin mouthfeel, then spicey clean average length finish. An easy drinking mild spicey brew, great for the holidays.

Bottle. Pours bright orange with white head. Smells very nutmeg and allspice. Has a big nutmeg taste, vegetative, floral, a simple brew. Easy and good.

J_man (769) - Tustin, California, USA - NOV 7, 2013
Definite cinnamon aroma coming off a clear copper/orange body with a thin white head. The cinnamon follows into the taste which is what dominates here along with some other pumpkin pie spice. There’s a good honey/caramel sweetness to balance the spice and slight vegetal taste. The body is kind of thin. A bit too much cinnamon without enough backbone, but still not a bad pumpkin beer.

AdamT (228) - North Carolina, USA - OCT 30, 2013
12oz bottle from Brewmasters in Wilson. Golden brown hue, normal clarity with off-white fully diminishing head. Virtually no lacing. Nutmeg & spice on the nose. Light citrus, pumpkin & alcohol up front, light citrus & nutmeg on the finish. Oily texture with flat carbonation on the palate. It was okay.

(Bottle). Pours a beautiful clear orange-amber complexion. The flavor is a mild pumpkin with mellow spices, not over-spiced. Good mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can definitely smell the pumpkin along with, allspice, hay, citrus, and clove. It has a clear amber color with minimal head. heavy cloying sweetness, lightly bitter, lightly sour, umami, medium body, slick feel, lively carbonation, with a long finish. Even though this beer is on the sweet side I enjoyed it very much with its balance of sweet and bitterness I would really recommend this beer.

DuffMan (7466) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 17, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Light amber. clear, average white head. Aroma and flavour deliver mild pumpkin with light caramel and light spice. Kind of a middling profile all around, slightly earthy. Okay.

AirForceHops (4042) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 13, 2013
12 oz. bottle from Julio’s and a second bottle in trade with queenholly. Clear orange in color, thin head with spider web lace. Nose is indeed pumpkin and spice. Good carbonation making for a lively effervescent palate. Very light body (well it is a lager) Pumpkin spice and nutmeg are the only real flavors to speak of. Not bad just really light.

Not a giant fan of this pumpkin beer. The pumpkin flavor itself is nice. Not all that chemically. The spice, especially the nutmeg flavor is overwhelming though. Sickening to finish.
