Pours to a deep orange with little white head. Leaves a smell of pumpkin and cloves. Taste of a dry pumpkin leaving firm aftertaste

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 donít get pumpkin I get delicious apple-raisin-cinnamon pie with the crumbly crust. Thin bodied with a spritzy carbonation. As a pumpkin beer it doesnít 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 doesnít 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 itís not overdone like some other pumpkin ales I have tried. Worth a try, I think itís a well balanced and subtle pumpkin beer.

Bottle; poured an iced treatment orange color with not much head. Aroma of pumpkin, spice, fruit juice, and sweetness. Pretty sweet, almost like a pie. Mild spice with some caramel. Enjoyed this

12oz bottle, purchased from Woodstock Wine & Cheese in Michigan. Enjoying this on robotoperaís pontoon boat in devils lake michigan, shortly after sunset. Setting is chill. Clear orange color. Little off-white head. Loose lace. Caramel malt, spiciness. Moderate sweet taste. Not much else to the taste, besides spiciness. Medium body. Smooth, kind of soft lighter carbonation. Slick finish. A whatever kind of craft pumpkin ale; mediocre. Nothing wrong with it, but nothing aside from the dead of average for the style.

Kinda bland and a bit watery. Itís like they started with a good idea but didnít add enough of anything to be unique. Aroma would suggest much more than the taste delivers.
