3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - Pours murky rosy amber with a thin filmy off-white head. Nose is PUMPKIN PIE! Holy balls...this might be more pumpkin pie than Pumpking...lots of whipped creaminess, pumpkin puree, pie crust, clove, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg--lots of spicing that balances out the pumpkin sweetness. Taste is the same, though much heavier on the spices. A little warmth on the finish shows the 7.5% a bit. Medium-bodied, a little slick and oily, and well-carbonated. Wow. Only $6.99 a 4-pack and found this one in the mix-six area. I canít imagine drinking more than one of these in a sitting, but if I want a pumpkin beer, this is probably it.

4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of huge pumpkin pie. The might be the most pumpkin pie smelling beer Iíve had...moderate spice with ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, and allspice mixed with light whip cream, graham cracker, and roasted pumpkin. There isnít any lacing. It pours a hazy reddish-orange with a one finger beige head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. The flavor starts with a quick dose of brown sugar that is followed up in the middle by light roasted pumpkin. The finish has moderate-heavy cinnamon, light-moderate nutmeg, ginger, allspice, graham cracker, and a touch of whip cream. Itís medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation and a somewhat sticky mouthfeel. Overall, the aroma is out of this world. For my preferences, the flavor is too heavy on the cinnamon in the finish. Tone the cinnamon down and this is probably one of the best pumpkin beers Iíve had. Even with the strong cinnamon, itís still very tasty. If you like pumpkin pie, youíll be hard pressed to not like this beer.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a light brown with little to no head. Aroma is of strong pumpkin roll. Very bready with vanilla, pumpkin, and spice. Flavor has pumpkin flavor but more spice driven. Sweet aftertaste with more carbonation than desired. Overall good pumpkin beer. Aroma is what drives this beer.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice aroma and color. Definitely an autumn beer with a creamy froth. Not so much on the pour but on the throat. The taste is like an SA Octoberfest but with just the right amount of pumpkin and spices. I would get it again if it was priced right. Certainly drinkable.

(12oz bottle) fairly cloudy deep copper, fine tan edge bubbles. Nose of real pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, almost like a pumpkin cookie. Taste of pumpkin mash, fruity yeast esters, cinnamon, nutmeg, touch of clove. An excellent pumpkin beer.

Thanks cards04. Dark orange body with sediment and a orangey/brown head, not much retention, though. All the pumpkin pie spices in the aroma. Taste is also quite sweet and full of fall spices. Abv well masked. Quite nice.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle via 4 pack generously sent to me by my cousin Glenn. Poured a hazy deep amber color with a small creamy tan head. Aroma caramel, pumpkin, pie crust, amber malt, and cinnamon. Taste is pretty killer. Sweet caramel, cinnamon, nutmeg, pie crust, pumpkin, and vanilla cream. Taste like liquid pumpkin pie with whip cream. Definitely one of my new favorite pumpkin beers!
