Bottle. Sweet pumpkin malt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger aroma. Hazy dark honey gold with a small quickly dissipating off-white head. Malty pumpkin, and the same spice flavors found in the nose. Medium body and carbonation. I’ve recently had several over-the-top horrible pumpkin ales, so it was nice to enjoy this simple, solid pumpkin beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pour is orange with an amber tint. Aroma of spice and pumpkin. Taste is sweet and slightly bitter. Mouthfeel is light with the full flavor of a really good pumkin pie but not heavy like eating one. Mouthfeel is also a bit sudsy.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a nice orangish amber with light head and lacing. Nutmeg spices and sweet malts predominated the nose. Taste was very smooth with a nice mix of malt, spices, pumpkin with a light to moderate hop finish. Mouth was good. Overall, likely the best pumpkin brew I have tasted.

Short, off-white head.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2012 Amber color with a white head. Aroma contains some caramel and pumpkin. The taste also contains some caramel and pumpkin but also some spices present as well . Overall more like an amber with some spices present than a true pumpkin beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Good spicy fall winter lager beer. Not a lot of pumpkin and that is a bit discouraging but good beer overall. Little lacing but good golden color with quick forming and dissolving head.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light orangish yellow with minimal head. Aromas of cinnamon, pumpkin, yeast, and cereal. The flavor is only slightly sweet, more dry than anything . Lighter bodied. This pumpkin lager is alright, not the best fall seaonal, but worth trying.
