Poured and orange-copper color, small white head. Smell of pumpkin, cinnamon and other spices. Tasted very pumpkin pie like. Probably would be better mixed as an ale instead of a lager. Decent beer.

Iím NOT a lager guy.....but I AM a pumpkin guy... This beer is nice! Itís got the pumpkin flavor I want, not too spicy, not too thick....nice bubbly zing on the tongue.. Pours a hazy and almost amber color. Little head that dissipated immediately. Sweet spice aroma, but not very heavy... Light lager taste with hints of pumpkin and spice....very refreshing! My new favorite lager!

deep orange with a thin white head. Aroma of sweet pumpkin with muted nutmeg and cinnamon. Sweet veggie flavor with nutmeg and cinnamon on the finish. Not too overwhelming, in fact for a pumpkin beer, I would like the flavors to be a bit more assertive and distinguish itself from a regular bock. This one just seems comfortable sitting on the fence.

I'm surprised this is only rated a 3.14. It's a pretty darn good pumpkin ale. Aroma is not anything special. Color is a bright orange. Initial taste is crisp and refreshes the palate. Light on the spices, but enough to let you know it's fall. I could definitely drink it all night.

Eh. Nice aroma of pumpkins and spice. Couldnít really taste it though, just seemed to be a little spicy around the edges of my tongue. Not much to it, really.

Aromas of lager with faint pumpkin fruit notes under clove and cinnamon. A delicious lager that does not overdo the spice footer the season. Bottle from bottle shop.

12oz. All pumpkin pie spice in the aroma, no hint of malt or hops. Flavor is similar except that there is a slight hop bitterness that blends with the spice in a not completely pleasant way. The after taste is watery but the body is on the thick side. Not bad for the first couple sips but it gets harder to drink. Perhaps itís better on tap.
