KajII (783) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - NOV 18, 2011
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.

ARH (486) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 28, 2014
12oz bottle poured into a imperial pint glass. The initial aroma is a strong vanilla bean note, but this fades to a fairly hefty biscuit / cookie character with cinnamon and nutmeg. There?s a light vegetable note hiding in there too. It pours a remarkable clear, oily amber color, with just a hint of sediment giving it a "glimmering" look; along with it?s almost lazy effervescence. The head is just off-white and frothy and leaves a heavy dose of fluffy web lace, as well as retaining a fairly thick, sudsy head along the surface throughout. The taste is a medium sweet and bitter, with maybe a touch more sweet than bitter. The medium thin bodied beer is light, soft and creamy with a pillowy carbonation. It’s very smooth and easy drinking. There?s definitely "pumpkin spice" present, but it?s balanced nicely by a definitive vegetable note. It finishes with the spice which provides a crisp and fresh touch and a bit of the vegetable, vanilla bean, and spice note linger in the aftertaste.

APPEARANCE – Exactly what I’d expect for a pumpkin beer. Dark amber beauty. NOSE – Again perfect color for a pumpkin beer. FLAVOR – excellent balance of malt and spice. NOTES – Outstanding pumpkin beer. I haven’t had another that’s better.

Tasted from bottle. Pours a dark orange with off white head. Aroma is nutmeg, caramel and spices. Taste is moderately spicey with all spice, nutmeg and pumpkin. Mild to moderate bitterness with some earthly flavors with moderate caramel sweetness. Pretty good pumpkin beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pours a burnt orange copper with a smallish beige head. Aroma is pumpkin, nutmeg, slight clove. Taste is pumpkin and some mild spice, hint of coriander. Slight hop presence, not real sweet. Some of the spice lingers in the sinuses. A nice brew.

12 oz bottle. (World Market) Chattanooga, TN.
Cloudy amber colour with a tiny off-white head. The aroma is sweet pumpkin and spices with some sweet maltiness. Sweet as all the pumpkin beers. The flavour is spices, pumpkin, sweetness, malt and some sugar. Quite tolerable pumpkin beer.

It's an okay from Canela if you like pumpkin ale. It's not as overbearing is Most are. Aromas is mild. Flavor is Toned down and has an unusual Tea characteristic. Good body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ernest (6270) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 12, 2014
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium amber. Aroma is lightly malty (cookie), lightly hoppy (apricot), with notes of nutmeg, clove, cinnamon, squash. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Heavily dependent on spices (for both aroma and bitterness), and rather thin and watery in the mouth. Ok, but simple and generic.
