Bought in New Haven. Had trouble finding non-ipa there, but I did get the Elm City Pilsner which was very good. This Nebraska had a long pumpkin flavor, whereas most pumpk beers are shallow in pumpk.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A- Dirty diapers, spices, malty, nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon.
A- Orange color, clear liquid, minimal head.
T- Spices, pumpkin, cloves, coriander, cinnamon, malty, nutmeg, slightly sweet.
P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, spiced finish.
O- The smell is a little funky but it gives you the idea of what you are about to imbibe. The taste is that of a pumpkin spice bread. Tons and tons of spices, primarily cinnamon and nutmeg. Also some pumpkin flavors, naturally. This was good overall, but wasnít anything I would run for again.

Draft - Lots of pumpkin and some Christmas spice. Clear copper with no head. Pumpkin is king here with the spice in the background. Well balanced and for once not too spicy. Well done.

Bottle, shared by me... in my dining room... just now.
Pours a bright orange color with a small but well retained head and some lacing on the glass.
The aroma is pretty spice forward most particularly pronouced are the cinnamon and ginger with a touch of clove. It does have some maltiness and a touch of pumpkin flesh, but itís generally pretty spice forward. Kudos to the brewers here on getting ginger to smell so fresh in the final product, so many beers with ginger seem to come off as medicinal.
The flavor is very nice, itís got zippy spicy notes of cinnamon and ginger with more subdued clove and nutmeg. Itís got a nice pumpkin flesh thing going on. This beer is only a touch sweet and does have a nice mild bitterness to it. It always seems like the best pumpkin beers are generally sweeter and donít incorporate a lot of bitterness, but this one pulls off the balance just right.
The mouthfeel is zippy and full.
One of the better pumpkin beers Iíve had.
