Pumpkin flavor was just not as strong as it could be. Big 22oz bottle. Nice aroma but overall flavor falls a little short.

22 oz. Bottle. Ok, but not that impressive due to the overwhelming boozy flavor. Excellent scent of banana, spice, clove, pumpkin, nutmeg, and alcohol. Bronze pour with a head quick to ring. Light/med body, silky, slight sticky finish. Big alcohol flavor over banan and pumpkin, nutmeg.

This is not a pumpkin pie type of beer thank goodness. It’s only September first. Nice malt aroma from an amber pour with a very thin head. A bit of the pumpkin comes through in the taste and the spices come out in the after taste. Not bad.

Pours a deep amber with a medium lt tan head. Aroma is very spice forward...somewhat muddled. Flavor follows suit...excessive bitterness for my taste in the style. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is bitter and spicy...dry lingering spice. Just another spicy mess with no depth or pumpkin flavor at all.

Bottle with Pedro. Pours a clean dark amber with fluffy beige head and lacing. Aroma is pumpkin spice - cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, and some pumpkin. Taste is pumpkin, cloves, nutmeg, with a sweet banana finish and a little bitterness.

22 oz bomber from Spirits Crossroads and my 1st pumpkin beer of the season for 2012. Poured a rusty orange body under an average to larger sized slightly foamy beige head. Aroma has a chocolate background with notes of pumpkin spices, toast and some pumpkin husk. Body is full and dry with lots of mid-flavor spices and finishes full and spicey. Flavor of toast, chocolate, pumpkin pie spice, dry pumpkin rind and grain. It’s okay and the ABV is well hidden but I’d rather have the king and yes I mean Pumking.

Moderate pumpkin with a light spice and malt later in the aroma. Cloudy orange color with a medium white head. Sweet and pumpkin beginning with a light bitter finish. Nice mellower pumpkin beer.

Decent pumpkin beer. Aroma was all pumpkin pie spice (heavy on the cinnamon and ginger). Pour was beautiful. Thick deep dark gold (light brown) in the middle then lightens as it goes outward with (surprise!) some sediment floating in there! One finger off white head. Taste was thick and chewy. There was a lot of roasted malt in this beer. The spices are not as heavy in the flavor but play nicely with that roastiness. Medium to light carbonation. Sweet pumpkin pie finish.

Pretty good pumpkin beer. Aroma is cinnamon, nutmeg, toasty malts. Taste is medium sweet with good spice flavor and a bit of pumpkin flesh. Not too bad.
