On tap at Cave's. Brown orange pour with a very small white head. Aroma is pumpkin spice. Really nice out first, but then just too much. Taste is the same. Great at first and now just too damn much.

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.

12oz bottle, no date from firmbuttstone. Clear brown amber with some very fine particulate matter, and a small beige head, low retention. Aroma has a fair amount of banana nut bread and fruitcake, light raisin behind. Flavor is fruit cakey with some boozy notes added, some caramel and spice. Medium body with fairly low carbonation. Dry finish, some alcohol and toast noted, bitterness peaked at a 2-3. I enjoyed Tyranena’s better, just before this one.

Just cracked this open and the aroma is all ginger snaps. Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. Big thanks to ughsmash. Lots of holiday spicing, warming, chocolate, toffee. There is any interesting creamy texture to the mouthful, pumpkin maybe? Very nice.

Smells rich and pumpkin pie like. Taste however is a bit boozy. no desire to taste alcohol in any beer but especially not something like this. Flavor otherwise is pretty good with nice pumpkin spice flavors. booze killed an otherwise great pumpkin beer. why make it 7.5%?

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!

Poured this at a perfect temperature with a small fizzy head that promptly disappeared, no lace and a clear brown color. Aroma is spicy pumpkin pie and more bold than the flavor. This is one of the better pumpkin beers where the flavors are not so overpowering. There is some balance; malts can be tasted; still not one of my favorite kinds of beers but this isn't bad. Good body. Decent finish with a very slight hint of alcohol.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thin off-white head of fine bubbles. Spices and pumpkin with some sweet malts and a bit of butterscotch. Color is a dark copper brown. Flavor is mild spice and pumpkin. Some gingerbread and toasted grains. Slightly gritty mouthfeel. Noticable but light alcohol presence. Finishes spicy and dry. A pretty decent pumpkin brew.

This is one epic pumpkin beer. It actually tastes like a piece of pumpkin pie. Crust and all. Buttery, spicy, and earthy pumpkin wrapped up in a bottle. One of the best pumpkin beers I’ve had.
