Pours amber with a small Head. Nose is heavy with pumpkin and spice... Very strong scent. Taste is almost too overpowering with pumpkin spices. I know thatís what this is marketed as, so I wonít discredit for that. Anyone looking for liquid pumpkin pie wonít be disappointed.

Bottle at Chatterbox while playing Battleship and Candyland. Aroma is big on the traditional pumpkin pie spices especially nutmeg and cloves. Pours mostly as a golden orange. Little head. Taste actually pulls back on the pumpkin flavors which is disappointing. Dry finish. Mouthfeel is quickly dissipating. Good, but better pumpkin options available.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Nice bold aroma of sweet spices, raisins, cinnamon and brown sugar. Clear orange hued amber with a white head, dissipates quickly. Heavy sweet taste up front. Heavier sugar tones, but some sweet malty tones in the background. Finishes with a cough syrup type bite, mixture of molasses and bitter hops. Medium finish, average carbonation. Average.

Pours pale straw white with a little haze. Aroma is pretty strong bananas, wheat. Flavor is pretty light, not much going on. Kinda boring, but not bad.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
In bottle. Nice orangey amber color, smells like pumpkin pie spices. I felt this beer compromised itself by going for both a pumpkin and a spice flavor. I felt it ended up rather squash-y, with a weird zucchini flavor. Perhaps this means they just went all-out and added more pumpkiin than the others; if so, kudos for the effort, and just either add more or take out the cinnamon, please.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Decent body to this one is what stood out the most. Much better than the majority out there, aside from Dogfish Headís version. Pours a nice deep amber hue and the spices of pumpkin pie dance through my nose. A bit too sweet on the palate, but drinkable. Sad to see that the foam quickly clears soon after Iíve had my first sip. Hard time finding the hops in this one where the spice dominates. I understand it is lightly hopped, but perhaps a bit more to help balance out the sweetness.

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.

Aroma - sweet pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg;
Appearance - light copper, fluffy head, poor lacing;

Palate - slightly crisp, average body;
Overall - easy drinking, not in-your-face pumpkin yet not bland either.
