This is extremely pumpkin heavy. The aroma has some but not nearly as much as the body. Itís really too much for me. It also tasted a tad bit of the alcohol.

Poured from a cold bottle. Clear orange color, light white head. Slight pumpkin smell with a slight sourness to it. Very mute taste, slight sourness, the pumpkin eventually surfaces but clashes with the sour fruitiness.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz bottle. Pours hazy golden orange with a small fizzy white head that quickly goes to a thin collar.
The aroma is pumpkin spices (nutmeg, cinnamon) with some malt.
The flavor is some vegetative pumpkin and light spice (mostly cinnamon) with a bit of medicinal bitterness. I donít get much cranberry or lemongrass. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation and is a bit watery.
Overall, a bit of a letdown. Might be better if they waited and used real pumpkin rather than releasing in July.

Perfectly average pumpkin beer. My first pumpkin beer of the season, so it's pretty freaking great. Very drinkable, excellent session beer.

Draft. Pumpkin malt and ginger heavy pumpkin spices aroma. Clear copper with a small off-white head. Just like the nose, pumpkin malt and ginger heavy pumpkin spices flavor. LIght body, soft carbonation. Not a bad pumpkin beer.

Pour is a clear amber with a average white head. Aroma is pumpkin pie spices that remind me of Thanksgiving. Flavor is a decent pumpkin spice then after the swallow you get the tartness of the cranberry juice. Finish goes away quickly. This was decent but with Schlafly pumpkin coming out any time now I will not needs any of these other pumpkin beers.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from bomber a copper color with off white head. Nose has all sorts of spices, nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, some vanilla, pumpkin, and some light fruit notes. Taste is light pumpkin, spices, and subtle tart fruit. Medium mouth feel with a fair about of carbonation. Itís hard to believe it is 6% as it is session able and not overbearing in any aspect, to a fault even.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium copper with a very light haze - fairly considerable, frothy lace - aroma is dry, with moderate nutmeg and all spice, toasty malt, pumpkin, and a mildly tart cranberry kick - medium body, moderate carbonation - moderately sweet and toasty malt makes way for mild spices through the middle, which are cut but a somewhat acidic finish and cranberry and lemongrass - the tanginess and acid add a nice counter to the spices, making this a pretty enjoyable and easy-drinking pumpkin beer.

Bottle. Has a tart aroma with cranberries and spice. The taste is primarily a tart and sweet cranberry flavor with some pumpkin and spice as a sort of afterthought. Sweet finish. Pretty decent! 6% alcohol.
