On tap @ Buffalo Wild Wings in Brick. Pours a clear burnt orange color with a finger of foamy white head. Really nice lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, roasted pumpkin, and lots of pumpkin pie spices. One of the better pumpkin beers I've had this season. Sweet caramel, earthy hop bitterness, and lots of spices, mainly cinnamon and clove.

Tasted from bottle. Pours a clear orange amber with nice fluffy white head. Good lacing. Aroma of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg. Taste up front is caramel with pumpkin and spices. Bitterness quickly follows with continued cinnamon and nutmeg spices. Nice bitter finish but not overly hoppy. More bitter than most pumpkin beers. Pretty good overall. Not as good as dogfish head or Pumking but above average pumpkin beer.

Leve aroma de abóbora. cor alaranjada e com espuma média. Sabor frutado sem grandes notas de abóbora. Leve retrogosto de remédio no final da língua. No geral, interessante para agregar número nas avaliações.

A: Golden Straw/Amber Hue, Passes Some Light, White Head, Decent Lacing
S: Pumpkin, Mild Cinnamon, Mild Grainy Malts
T: Grainy Bitter Malts, Mild Pumpkin
M: Decent Carbonation, Medium Bodied, Semi Bitter
Overall, the nose was nice but the taste was way too bitter, not even a good hoppy bitterness, just a grainy bitter without much pumpkin flavor. Not the worst pumpkin beer I have ever had but definitely up there.

Simply opening the bottle produced a frothy head of creamy white foam. That creaminess carried over to the first swallow after taking in the mild bouquet of pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg. In addition to the pumpkin filling, we also get a hint of pie crust at the end through the light maltiness. It’s slightly sweet, but the finish doesn’t last as long as you’d expect from the first sniff and taste.

Clear amber pour with a persistent off white head. Aroma is spices, Christmas bread. Medium bodied. Decent pumpkin flavour shows through with subtle spices, a bready malt backing and a lingering piney, vegetal finish. Above average as far as pumpkin beers go.

Bottle form Corks of Cotham, Bristol. Pours a deep amber with a tight, off-white head and moderate carbonation. Aroma of pumpkins, clove, cinnamon, caramel and yeast. Fairly thin in the mouth, with some cereal malts, a touch of sweetness, a hint of pumpkin and gentle finish. After a decent start, this tailed off badly.

Looks nice with the crystal clear orangish color. Smells mostly of nutmeg. Taste is pretty much spice with some very slight pumpkin flavors. A bit of a let down on the pumpkin. The spice just overpowered the whole thing.
