Hazy orange pour with non existent head. Aroma is dominated with spice and sweet pumpkin. High hopes. Taste is sweet with a slight hint of bitter at the finish. Overall weak carbonation and light body lend to an underwhelming but decent pumpkin beer

Red-orange pour with head that disappeared before I set the glass down. Aroma is pumpkin and spice. Taste is pumpkin, cinnamon and spices. Little medicinal aftertaste.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours yellow-orange and clear. Very little head. Strong pumpkin aroma, with some nutmeg, clove, and brown sugar thrown in. Taste is a bit of pumpkin, which doesn’t hold up very well against the spices, particularly the nutmeg. Not bad, but I wouldn’t say it reminds me of pumpkin pie so much. Not sweet, by the way.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Faint aroma of biscuit, barley and spice. The pumpkin is hardly noticable. Amber appearance with a huge foam top. Creamy syrup, maple, spice and herb. Not very much pumpkin present. Overall, a decent beer at best.

Aroma: Spices, all spice, hint of pumpkin

Taste: Subdued flavors relative to the aroma. Spice, slight pilsner bitterness.
Palate: Light body, although a bit heavier mouthfeel. Good carbonation making for a lively mouthfeel. Finish is dry, a nicely balanced between sweet and bitter.
Overall: Interesting take on a pumpkin beer, drinkable, decent flavors, and a great aroma.

Pretty good pumpers. Made with lager so it's not as lively in the younger but the pumps is strong and good spices. Pumpers like to pump.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
THOUGHTS: A good deal lighter than most pumpkin beers in body, but not light on flavor. Way better than I was expecting. I thought they just made a lager to be different, but it was really a great tasting beer. Incredibly easy to drink.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a slightly cloudy, light to medium, orangey copper with a large, off-white head that pretty much fully diminished. The aroma had light grain; moderate caramel; slight hops; and mostly sweet pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices.The initial flavor was moderately sweet and slightly bitter and sour; while the finish was moderate to heavily sweet and slightly bitter and acidic with a sort of short duration. There was caramel malt, sweet pumpkin, pumpkin pie spices, and light and crisp hops. The light to medium body was slick and creamy with fizzy carbonation. It went down so easy.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle served in a snifter.
Pours a hazy orange (pumpkin)/amber with an off-white head that soon disappears.
S: Pumpkin pie spices (mainly cinnamon and nutmeg), pumpkin puree and some biscuity malts.
T: A nice mix and balance of spicing, but too strong. It masks the pumpkin until the finish and leaves little detectable malt/grain flavor. Interesting sweet/tart mix.
M: Medium bodied, with a level of carbonation that seemed a bit aggressive.
O: yet another over-spiced pumpkin beer, and this one is of the more subtle lager variety, making the imbalance more of an issue.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a very slightly hazy orange with two fingers of quickly settling whote head. Aroma is pumpkin with plenty of spice, smells sweet. Flavor is sweet up front, moderate to heavy spice, cinammon and allspice. Finishes with mild, perhaps slightly artificial pumpkin tones. Moderate-soft carbonation and light body. A light, drinkable, sweet pumpkin beer. Was afraid this bottle would taste old but it was fine.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy orange-caramel color with a medium sized foamy tan head that faded quickly and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was semi sweet caramel, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. The flavor was dryish and spicy with strong nutmeg and cinnamon and moderate caramel and nut undertones. Long cinnamon and nutmeg finish. Medium body. Solid.
