22 oz. bottle. Label reads "Brush and Barrel Series." Pours a lightly hazed golden orange with a moderate off-white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. Pleasant aroma of caramel, malt, pumpkin, with the requisite pumpkin pie spices. The flavor is more spice than pumpkin but not totally out of balance. Some caramel and malt present as well. Mild bitterness at the finish. Alcohol is well hidden. Medium bodied.

From a 22 oz bottle shared at home. Pours a clear reddish copper with an off white head. Caramel malt nose. Spicy pumpkin pie notes, but not over the top. Tasty.

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

22 oz. bottles from Gary’s beverage, Portsmouth, NH. One year old bottle store in my cellar. Dark amber with light bubbly head that provided lacing. Nose is light graham cracker and a strong amount of pumpkin. Flavor of squash, faint herbal and malty notes with ginger and nutmeg in the finish. Full in body with a light effervescent mouthfeel. Nice job here.

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.

The aroma is pumpkin pie spices, brown sugar, light booze, pumpkin. The appearance is relatively clear deep amber, off-white head. The flavor is like the aroma, pie spices, caramel, pumpkin. Boozy. The finish is light booze, pine, spices. Medium/thick in body, creamy mouthfeel. The booze comes through too much, especially considering it’s only 8%. Still, pretty enjoyable overall.

Cloudy reddish caramel pour with no head. Aroma of pumpkin spices and bread. Very spicy flavor with cinnamon, ginger, and clove dominant. Some bread and slight pumpkin at the end. Very big beer. Great lacing.

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.

Bottle. Pours reddish orange with a nice off-white head. Aroma of pumpkin spice, nutmeg and cinnamon. Flavor was pumpkin pie, nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon and other spices. A decent pumpkin brew
