strong scent of nutmeg, and some cinnamon. Also a scent of chai that lingers. taste is of pumpkin and the chai taste comes through again with some nutmeg and a little citrus. finish is smooth with a spice after taste. I would probably purchase this again.

Pours a cloudy butterscotch color with white head. Pumpkin pie aroma. Pleasant test...cinnamon, clove, ginger and flaked barley. but this is more spicy than pumpkiny. Medium body.

Bottle from craft beer outlet. Pours a clear copper color, with some spices on the nose. Tastes of ginger and nutmeg, but not so much pumpkin. Decent.

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.

Clear light orange. Small white head. Pumpkin spice aroma. Had low expectations, but this was smooth and had the right level of spice. Not bad at all.

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice golden orange color. A good size head that dissipates quickly enough to question whether it was even there or not. Minor retention, but decent lacing.
Spices hit the olfactory sense with a hammer. Cinnamon, nutmeg and clove dominate. Smells like a fresh pumpkin pie.
Sadly, the taste does not compare to the smell. All of the elements are there, they are just subdued to the point of blurring. If anything, I’d say that this beer is over-balanced. I can tell that there are multiple things going on in here. I just can’t pick them out and seperate them from one another. There’s too much overlap. This is the taste of "bleah!".
Once again, this beer is disappointing to me. The body is weak and lifeless. Nothing to excite me. Just thin and watery.
Here is a time that a beer started off very promising and couldn’t quite pull it off, in the end. I wanted this to be so much more. I’m not in a hurry to have another one.

On tap at Clark St. Ale House, Chicago. Definitely tasted the pumpkin flavor, although the overall body is very light. I wish it had a little more malt to beef up the beer-- I guess it’s just a light lager with pumpkin flavor.

9/29/13 part of the 8 pack drank out front.
Big pumpkin spice in both taste and smell. I think I'm officially over pumpkin beer.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pours a hazy orange with a tiny white head yet has that constant carbonation like a glass of Sprite. Kind of an odd smell to it. pumpkin type spices, maybe cinnamon or apple pie even a bad potpourri smell. something very sweet and spicy about the aroma. Flavor is not that great, lots of nutmeg/ginger flavors. I may be biased ’cause I’m not a fan of ginger. Pumpkin, herbal flavors. Slight sweetness .Light body, thin mouthfeel, long finish taste stick with you but I don’t like it very much. Go try Dogfish Punkin’ Ale if you want a good pumpkin flavored beer.

This pumpkin is more spice than pumpkin, but it is pretty damn tasty. It's a good seasonal.
