Bottle into iced Pilsner glass. Deep copper color with minimal white head and no lacing. Aroma is fruity like green apple and raisins. Weird. But taste is effervescent. Like a sparkling ale. Cinnamon nutmeg and clove flavors. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I like pumpkin pie, I love beer… so why not? Pours a cloudy orange with a medium white head. Aroma is cinnamon & nutmeg and the taste is the same. Pleasantly sweet, yet not overwhelming. Enjoyable.

Kinda bad. Just a typical artificial tasting weak herbal brew. Nothing to write home about or waste your stomach space on.

Appearance is deep golden with hint of orange, clear, and an off white head. Aroma is cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove. Like fresh pumpkin pie. Taste is sweet caramel malt with pumpkin spicing on the back end. Differs from some othe pumpkin ales in that the malt seems to dominate the flavor. Mouthfeel is light to medium for the style, with a moderate carbonation. Finishes with a spicy, bready note. Definitely more caramel malt and less spicing in this than other pumpkin ales, which I kinda like.

355ml twist off bottle. Orange pour, not much head. Smells like pumpkin pie, good on them for mirroring it. Flavor is typical pie spices, but not too much on them, little bit of pumpkin, literlaly tastes like pumpkin pie, one of the few pumpkin beers that tastes like pumpkin pie and honestly that’s all i ask, not diabetes and spices.

This is a very spice forward pumpkin ale but the spice flavor is pleasant at least, make for a pretty drinkable beer--better than many by the brewery, in fact. It is slightly hazed orange w/ a white head of fine bubbles that lasts as just a small ring for the duration of the glass. The nose is all warm cinnamon spice w/ something of an apple note, which I assume comes from the yeast. Flavor is even more spice forward w/ a very slight metallic note coming out as it warms. Its texture is suitably creamy for this kind of beer though but still relatively light bodied w/ mild carbonation which seem to add to things. This definitely scratches the pumpkin beer itch for those who crave such things. There are better ones out there but this is good enough I suppose.

Picked up at Bottles and Cans. It pours a clear amber with a thin head that was gone in the blink of an eye. Very fruity cinnamon, extremely freshly baked apple pie like with a touch of raisins. The taste is similar, I don’t get pumpkin I get delicious apple-raisin-cinnamon pie with the crumbly crust. Thin bodied with a spritzy carbonation. As a pumpkin beer it doesn’t work for me I give it a 12/20 as an apple pie beer it gets a 16/20 either way it is quite sweet and could be cloying for some people. I like it but a 6-pack would be a bit much, more of a once a day beer. If you are having trouble getting through a bottle it pairs very very nicely with ice cream - think pie a la mode. Overall pretty good and it paired exceptionally well with a Tokyo Banana too.

Just awful. Strong cinnamon start and highly carbonated. Had out of a bottle at home. Pours orange in color with a white head

Poured a cloudy copper colour with minimal head. Sweet and spicy aroma. A bit carbonated. Taste of pumpkin and spices, primarily cinnamon and nutmeg, are balanced with malt flavors. A good flavor for pumpkin ales, but doesn’t offer much more. Just a decent brew for everyday fall.

I think this one deserves a higher rating. Really smells and tastes like pumpkin. Has some sweetness and pumpkin pie spices, but it’s not overdone like some other pumpkin ales I have tried. Worth a try, I think it’s a well balanced and subtle pumpkin beer.
