Bottle. The pour was a hazy medium brown with a slight orange hue and a large (2-3 finger) off white rocky head that had decent retention and fair lacing that stuck to the glass throughout.
The aroma was mild of toasted barley malt, a mild herbal hop and a doughy yeast with notes of nutmeg, cinnamon and pumpkin.
The taste was very lightly sweet with a hint of nutmeg and cinnamon at first and moderately bitter with a strong taste of pumpkin rind and clove at the finish. The flavor lasted an average time with the bitter flavor lingering well beyond any of the other flavors.
Mouthfeel was light to medium in body, watery and a little dry in texture with a mild carbonation.
Overall this brew has so much bitter spice flavor that it just overwhelms all the other flavors in this beer.

Iíve had worse in this style. Itís certainly drinkable with plenty of spices that pepper the nose and tongue. Appearance is sort of a murky brown amber with little head. Finish is slightly watery but not totally unpleasant.

Poured from a 12 0z bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a very aromatic presence of hops and spices.
Appearance - A murky orange color with a large tan colored head.
Taste- You can really taste the hops and spices but the flavor doesnít last.
Palate- A medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation and a semi-creamy feel to it.
Overall- Not a bad beer at all but there are plenty of others that can exceed this one.

(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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
