I was actually a little surprised and was really looking forward to this beer. Very underwhelming and average at best. This beer had almost no spice or kick of any kind. Light flavors throughout and little pumpkin.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours an orange color with a very low, dense, off white head. Aroma has a ton of cinnamon and allspice with a light malty/bready note at the finish. Flavor is full on pumpkin pie with max spice. Lots of cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice come through in the flavor with just a touch of cranberry at the finish. As with almost all pumpkin beer, the spice seems to dilute the mouthfeel as this feel a bit watery on the palate and has low carbonation to boot. Overall an okay brew nothing that I would seek out again though.

Aroma of cinnamon. I wish I could end it at that, but I need to keep typing. There is no additional aroma or flavor that I could detect, other than a bland bitter maltiness that comes as a result of being a beer. Meh.

From a 12 ounce bottle. Pours a dark amber with light carbonation and slight head. Nose is Thanksgiving pumpkin pie. Sweet pumpkin taste, good mouthfeel, a tinge of bitter. Did I mention it tastes like pumpkin pie?

3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an orange or honey color. Some head that lasts pretty well and okay lacing. It has tiny particles floating in there.
Aroma, no. Not really. Nutmeg, that’s all. I smell no pumpkin, no nothing.
Taste again is bland. I guess the main thing I Taste is lemongrass. There’s slight cranberry, but not a lot. I really expected some tartness, not finding it. It gets a little better as it warms up.
Mouthfeel is medium body. It is bitter, only slightly. It’s crisp and refreshing. Pretty drinkable.
Overall, I don’t like it so much. Many better pumpkin ales out there. The cranberry is interesting. The lemongrass is tasty. The beer isn’t great however. Need to reformulate it. Sorry, not so good.

Heavily spiced, nutmeg seems to dominate the flavour profile. Good mouth feel, but too heavy handed to have more then one.

About average for a pumpkin ale. Not much spice which is good. Low carbonation. I would not buy another.

355ml brown bottle. Clearish golden with white foam. Nose has cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves, sweet and pie-like. Taste has cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin. Light cranberry-lemon note of bitterness at the end. Interesting pumpkin brew, really enjoyable.
