Probably the best pumpkin beer I’ve ever had. The flavor was subtle and not overpowering like most pumpkin beers.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
The flavor is a bit coppery, but it’s tolerable thanks to the spiced pumpkin aroma and taste.

Clear orange/copper colour with little in the way of a head. Fruity aroma, sweets and cinnamon flavour. No discernible pumpkin, but quite good and refreshing nonetheless.

35.5 cl bottle. No yeast in bottom. Smells very much like pumpkin. This is definately not my type of beer. To much ugly flavour of pumpkins.

This is not a bad pumpkin ale. It reminds me a bit of Shipyard’s Pumpkinhead, however, it has more of a pumpkin taste to accompany that strong cinnamon aftertaste. An enjoyable beer for the holidays. Go have one!

Jax Package Store, Sandy Springs, Ga. - 12 oz bottle. Medium orane pur, little to no head, quite transparent. Aroma is very prominent with hints of potpourri, Christmas spices and cinnamon - fades slighlty as it settle. Flavor has the same spiciness and has a bit of a Wassel twang to it. Reminds me of Christmas - may actually taste good heated up. Mouthfeel is a tad thin. Decent.

Bottle. Amber in colour. Has a tan head that disappears quickly. Aroma of pumpkin and nutmeg, also some cinnamon. Has a pumkin taste and also taste of nutmeg and cinnamon. Has a sweet finnish and a spicy aftertaste.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nothing against pumpkin ales in general but this one seems more of a "pumpkin pie" ale than a traditional pumpkin. Far too much nutmeg persists from start to finish while pumpkin is barely evident. Unimpressive color and weak body to match. Unpleasant organic finish.

Had in the bottle at lunch at Foster’s, and pretty sure we had at the Beer Fest. Very clovey aroma and taste. Pretty good.
