Alcohol and bitterness was overpowering at the start. Once the beer warms a little it smoothed out. Typical pumpkin were taste.

Smell is like a pumpkin beer, so is taste. High malt complexion. Creamy and good but it disappears too quickly.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - OCT 28, 2012
Bottle. Pours a hazed amber brown with a thin to medium sized beige head. Soft pie spices and a touch of pumpkin, with a bit of yeast and a little sweet malt and toast. Medium bodied, a touch of warm booze, slightly overcooked pie crust, a bit of pie and spices. Finishes with a bit of spice, a touch of tart sweetness. Decent and easy drinking, but not all that great.

Very sweet/spicy aroma with some malt and caramel. Orange/amber appearance with hazy liquid and a minimal tan head. A sweet taste with some maltiness with nutmeg and other seasonal spices. Medium body. Overall, Iíve been looking for a good pumpkin/season beer for a while, so Iím picking up the local beers. This one tastes more like a normal malty ale with a sprinkle of nutmeg and other spices. Without the spices, it would taste like a normal ale and I was looking for something a bit more pumpkiny.
