Out of the 12oz bottle. Acquired in a trade and enjoyed at fridge temp in a snifter. Half a finger off-white head that fades fast. Deep amber color. Nice and hazy. Scent is full of tons of nutmeg and cinnamon. Hint of sweet molasses. Taste is loaded with pumpkins but it’s sort of muted / cheap tasting. It’s not all that powerful of a taste profile..sort of cutting corners pumpkin taste. Almost no spices and an overly sweet finish with this rotten apple fast. Medium body.

Gription79 (2253) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - DEC 17, 2012
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. The pumpkin spices dominate, there is a woody character, dry, thin bodied, slight alcohol. Not bad, but it could use more balance.

suprchunk (2179) - 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.

Chudwick (2109) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - SEP 13, 2012
12 oz bottle - pours copper with no head. Flavor is cinamon, caramel and pumpkin. Festivily autumnal. Sweet and spicy. Watery with a lingering spiciness. Glad I tried it but will not repeat.

jcartamdg (1954) - Spring Hill, Florida, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Pours a deep brown with a paper thin white head. Aroma of brown sugar and caramel malt, pumpkin pie spices. Taste is very sweet, caramel, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg etc. a bit too sweet for me. Very thin in body.

Bottle. Pours a weirdish brown. Nice pumpkin aroma, flavor isnt good at all. I hate pumpkin beers. Super thin mouthfeel.

ContemplateBeer (1532) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 30, 2013
Aroma: Fairly fresh and pleasant pumpkin scent with some cinnamon. Appearance: Dark copper pour with a quickly disappearing head; almost entirely still. Flavor: Mostly pumpkin up front with a bit more cinnamon towards the finish. Palate: Light body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: A perfectly acceptable and imminently drinkable pumpkin beer, but nothing to distinguish it from others in the style.
