From bottle poured into a pint glass. Sweet, but spicy. That pretty much all there is to it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Aroma of pumpkin pie spices including nutmeg, allspice, and cinnamon as well as pumpkin. Pours orange colored with a thin white head and not much lacing. Starts with decent pumpkin flavor and the above spices intermingling. Finishes smooth with a very light body and the spice lingering on the palate. Decent pumpkin.

Nice but not so great in taste. The aroma was fine and very thin to drink. It had nice golden looks too.

On tap at Milwaukee Brew Fest 2013. Pour is hazy orange/amber with a thin white head. Pumpkin spice and caramel in the nose. Flavor is similar with no hop qualities and a sweet finish.

Orange with a thin head and lots of lacing. Aroma of cooked pumpkin. Tastes like a wheat ale with pumpkin, rather simple. Water palate.

Chuckaduck (640) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - DEC 22, 2013
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.

Jow (2092) - New York, USA - NOV 21, 2013
Tap at the stags head as part of oddest flavored flight of beers I’ve ever designed of which this is most subdued. Pours orange brown with nose of traditional pumpkin spices and canned pumpkin pie mix. Tastes much ofnthe same of brown sugar, nutmeg, cloves, some malt, and pre made pumpkin pie. Nice palate and pretty tasty

From the bottle in September. Pours a cloudy apricot-amber with significant head and lace. Aroma of allspice, pumpkin, brown sugar, clove. Moderate carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of brown sugar, pumpkin, cinnamon, amber malts. Overall a lovely balance and flavor...worth seeking out.
