Squat longneck with a good label and cap. Dried apricot colored beer, foggy, without much head. Sweet, spicy, jammy apple butter aroma. Lightly sweet, a little vinegary - gives me the impression of pickled peaches. Allspice, nutmeg notes, dry, the bitterness is spice rather than hops. Medium to slightly light body. ABC, Bull Run.

12oz bottle. Pours a clear orange with no head. Aroma is mild pumpkin spice with a decent pumpkin vegetable flavor. Flavor is mostle mild sweet pumpkin. Decent malt, but clean and not too sweet.

AirForceHops (2939) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 22, 2013
12 oz. bottle in a trade with queenholly. Nose is cinnamon and caramel malt. Weak flavors of pumpkin, all spice and it has a strange sour ginger note. Body is thin and watery. Almost a sweet sugary finish. This odd sour ginger is real distracting and takes away from this beer. Is ginger even an ingredient in this brew? I really don’t like ginger root as a taste at all and for me this brew just does not work. Perhaps this works better on draft….

Bottle @ home, thanks to Jake. Clear copper pour with a small khaki head. Nose is strong nutmeg, some squash, bread, and toast. Light vanilla, caramel, and all spice. Lots of nutmeg and all spice. Caramel, toast, and toffee aromas. Apple, squash, and sweet malt. Slightly watery.

suprchunk (2029) - Crestview, Florida, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Deep orange colored pour with a tinge of redness in it. Small off-white head. Some lacing. A gourdish aroma with a bit of spices mixed in. Spicy taste with a malt and pumpkin flavor mix. Not bad.

Meh. Not much pumpkin. Beer is ok though. An amber. Nice caramel malt nose with some spices. Darker amber pour.

RRistow12 (215) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - OCT 10, 2013
Tasted from bottle. Color is cloudy brown with tan head. Aroma is definite cinnamon, moderate amount of pumpkin spice with some caramel malty notes. Taste is sweet up front with pumpkin, cinnamon, brown sugar. The cinnamon taste is very strong and continues throughout through the finish. Definitely a spicier pumpkin beer. Good but not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

WabashMan (1009) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - SEP 26, 2013
This beer starts off very well, with a nice looking pour and really nice nose with lots of pumpkin pie spices and a mild bready note that almost make you think it’s pie crust. Sadly, the flavor doesn’t stand up as well as the nose...if it did, this could be a top notch pumpkin brew.

Bottle pour deep amber minimal head. Nose sweet malt, pumpkin, cinnamon. Taste pumpkin pie in a glass. Sugary pumpkin, cinnamon, can almost taste the whip cream too. Mild bitter aftertaste.
