Wow, where to start with this one. This one poured a light brown color with a beige head. Aroma was all maple and cinnamon with light toasted graham crackers very inviting. Flavor was similar but more intense not very many pumpkin flavors aside from cinnamon but still a great tasting spice herbal vegetable beer. The Maple really makes this beer. Pretty much liquid waffle crisp.

On nitro, pours clear amber with an orange hue & a lacy white head. Aroma brings warming maple pie note, with some vanilla and sweet fall notes and spices in the nose. Flavor is so big and rich with every warming fall flavor and spice! It brings maple, molasses, brown sugar, vanilla, and a rich, somewhat creamy body that ends smooth with maple lingering for so long. Incredible!

Growler, pours a barely carbonated murky brown copper brown, no head really or lacing. Aromas and taste dont showcase much pumpkin or similiar spice like nutmeg at all. Notes of sweet malts, cherry almond, caramel, toast, slight wet dog, light pumpkin puree but not much. Almost cloying, just not getting this beer at all. It would be better with more carb and way more pumpkin.

A - Pours slightly hazy copper orange with a small half finger tall white head leaving very little lace down the glass. Not sure if it was the pour or the beer, will have to have another to see for sure.
S - Smells of fresh pumpkin pulp, light thanksgiving spices - mostly cinnamon and nutmeg - graham crackers, faint hop bitterness and some caramel and toffee from the malt.
T - Starts off with a bunch of fresh pumpkin pulp slowly giving way to hints of nutmeg, cinnamon, graham cracker pie crust, light caramel and toffee sweetness and a bit of light booze toward the end.
M - Medium body with moderate to low carbonation. Smooth feel with a very nice balance between all the flavors from start to finish. Only a touch of booze creeps in at the end of the glass.
O - This is a pretty nice pumpkin beer. Mine could have used a bit more carbonation and it could have been something special. I will have to give it another go in the near future. Either way another solid offering from Pizza Boy.
