Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a medium head. Sweet, nougaty aroma, with a lot of spice (nutmeg and cinnamon), and a good bit of pumpkin. The flavor has similar notes, although different in prominence. No unpleasant off-tastes, unlike a lot of other pumpkin beers. A very nice, nutmeg-driven example of the style.

(draft @ New Holland - Holland, MI) Murky orange pour with a fizzy white head. Some mild pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice in the aroma. Flavor is rather subtle. Very lightly spiced with a lot of straight pumpkin flavor.

This beer was pretty mediocre at best. An easy drinker, but the flavors really didnít lead me to want another. Could taste some pumpkin spice but it didnít meld exceptionally well.

On tap at world of beer. Lighter pumpkin variety but it's nicely filtered, crisp, and nicely spiced. Sometimes I prefer a more robust, spicy pumpkin beer but this one is very drinkable and not too filling.

12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a hazy dark gold with a one finger white head that disappears quickly into some soapy bubbles. No lacing to speak of.
Aroma has loads of clove and cinnamon with some vanilla and graham cracker. Pretty typical for the style but nothing wrong with it.
The flavor is where this beer really stands out. Starts off much like the aroma but has much more depth. Cinnamon seems to dominate with plenty of clove as well. Sweetness is held in check with a drying bitterness making this very drinkable. Mouthfeel is a little watery but it doesnít really detract.
Overall, one of the better lower-alcohol pumpkin beers out there. Great flavor and very drinkable.

On draft at DaVinciís. Pretty good pumpkin beer. Pumpkin flavor is not overpowering, but not too light. Spices are tasty, but also not overpowering. Easy drinking.
