This poured a lighter red/orange color with a beige head. Aroma was roasted malt, caramel, and light spices. Flavor was light alcohol, nutmeg, and light roast. Meh.

650 ml. bottle. Gorgeous label. Obtained in a trade with AdamJackson. Thanks! Dark amber, small tanned head. Sweet familiar pumpkin nose, sweet with solid vegetable touch, light metal, spices are in the back largely, tad copper malt, quite a bit of cloves. Faintly bitter cloves taste, touch vegetable pumpkin, light pennies, dough & spices are light in the back, quite a bit of bitter malt, light burned sugar, faint cough syrup,… Faintly metallic & tad burned sugar body. This is decent but I feel like it could have been so much more & I have had better in the style. This one is only for fans of the style I think.

Mad mex. Certainly some sweet pumpkin like aroma. Spices are in ther. A darker looking beer. Feel is somewhat flat but does have hints of co2 in there. Laid back for the amount of alky but bitter medicanal feel is really present. Not sure if there is any real pumpkin in the er.

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.

22oz bottle in a plastic cup. Pours brown with a cream-colored head. Aroma of pumpkin, caramel and bread-like malts, and some floral hops. Flavor the same, with some alcohol on the finish. Average texture. A good pumpkin beer.

Location: 22 oz bottle from Sparrow-Downtown, 9/10/12

Aroma: It has a good amount of spice (cinnamon, clove, etc), pumpkin, and some sweet malts
Appearance: This one pours a dark orange color with a beige head and some light lacing
Flavor: The taste is medium sweet, not as sweet as the nose, with a medium-plus spice presence
Palate: The body is medium, it has a lively carbonation, and a lasting, lightly dry finish
Overall Impression: This one was a solid Pumpkin beer, but not a stand-out in this style. Still though, it is something that I enjoyed drinking, so I give them a

Bottle. Orange brown pour with tan head. Cinnamon, nutmeg and some pumpkin aromas. Flavors follow, not all that vibrant.
