Earthy pumpkins and malt in the nose. Light-bodied with flavors of grainy malt, nutmeg and overripe fruit. The finish is stale malt and mild spices. Below average overall.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Note to the marketers: don’t choose a font where I can’t read the name of your beer to search for it. Nose heavy-handed pumpkin spice, very artificial, lots of nutmeg and some vanilla and allspice, some cinnamon and maybe even ginger; pours deep orange into chestnut, with a foamy beige head. Taste light-medium bitterness, but not hops, medium sweetness and over-spiced, also a bit too over-crispy for my tastes. Touch of stale air, more brown sugar, weak malt but not terrible. Just an overspiced mess.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Nicks. Very hazy orange brown pour with a nuce covering of foam. Medium Pumpkin Spice flavors. Watery pumpkin pie. Cinnamon. Nutmeg. Bit of brown amber fruit to rouns things off. Prunes and figs. Not extraordinary but bettered expectations. Nice dry finish. Has an interesting chalky/creamy feel. Easy drinking. Pumpkins feel a bit as if they are floating in clouds.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a murky brown color with chunks and a medium sized foamy beige head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was dryish and dusty with nutmeg and cinnamon sugar. The flavor was dry and spicy with notes of cinnamon sugar, nutmeg, bread, dust and egg white. Long dry and spicy finish. Medium body. Sub par.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From notes: Poured hazy nut brown, with a 1-finger bone-colored head. Aroma of pumpkin and spices, with a touch of butter too. Medium body, lightly fizzy with a mildly dry finish. Flavor has a light citrusy sourness up front, giving way to buttery pumpkin. The spices show at the back and linger in the finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to Dmac. Pours out an ugly muddy/apple cider color with a small white head. Aroma is of burnt sugar, pumpkin spices, apple, and some cinnamon notes. Taste is lots of cinnamon spice, lots of clove, like what I’d imagine drinking a fall candle’s wax would taste like, of corse minus the texture.
