I love a pumpkin ale. Strong robust spiceness paves the way to spectacular holidays. Thinner than other pumpkin lagers, with little hops and just enough clovey spiciness. Could turn you hair orange with too many!

Yes it does taste like pumpkin but I'm not so sure that pumpkin is a good flavor for a beer. There is just something weird about it. However the spices were nice. Good nutmeg, cinnamon, and allspice flavor.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Smell is pumpkin and spice. Pour is a clearish amber. Taste is pumpkiny with some malt. Not the best after taste. Average beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear orange body. After a brief flourish of effervescence, completely headless. Nice spice aroma, mostly nutmeg. Nutmeg flavor at the front, an earthy pumpkin sweetness emerges in the middle, before the spices dominate again in the finish. Milld hops bitterness nicely balances the sweet and spicy flavors. Finish crosses the line between earthy and stale. Thin to medium body, lively palate.

Not the best pumpkin beer ever created, but still a good taste. Aroma of pumpkin pie. Flavor of pumpkin pie. Maybe a bit over-done on the spices, but still drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear brownish orange with a small fizzy head. Aroma of pie spices and pumpkin with flavors to match. Nice medium body and carbonation is good too. I wouldn’t drink it every day but it’s a good holiday brew.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled 8/6/13. Poured 12/22/13. Pours translucent gold-amber with a thin, dissipating white head. Aroma is pumpkin spice, earthy, spicy, fruity, crisp, cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon. Taste is dry, bitter pumpkin flesh, nutmeg, grass, roast malt; but watery. Finish is bitter pumpkin rind. No lacing. Medium-low carbonation. Mouth feel is chewy. Better than I expected but not exceedingly so. Not terrible, but certainly nothing special.

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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pours a hazy amber orange body with a small offwhite head. Standard pumpkin beer aroma of pie spices. Taste features some genuine pumpkin favors which blend nicely with the spicy hops and pie spices of cinnamon, ginger, and clove. This lager stands up well to most pumpkin ales in my book.

Pours hazy orange with off-white head. Strong pumpkin-pie aroma (minus the whip-cream). Flavor was a mild malt pumpkin with bitter-sweet finish. Great for october!
