Gription79 (2793) - 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.

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.

one of the spices really bangs you over the nose and tongue, im guessing allspice? nutmeg? its like drinking a punmpkin caramel chai or something. about that sweet too. was worth trying, but yet another pumpkin beer i wouldnt drink twice.

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.

Itzjerm (2161) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - OCT 16, 2014
I had on draft and was impressed. However I bought a bottle and seems very thin, no head. Aroma is the best part of this beer. Not very impressive at all. A sweet spicy flavor (flavor of fall) that fades very quick to nothing. Very thin on the tongue. Not a great pumpkin beer.

tmongoose (2108) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 14, 2013
Bottle shared pours medium orange color, with off white head. Nice aroma of pumpkin and some mild spices which is a turn around from the norm. The flavor is very good solid pumpkin flavor with some mild cinnamon flavor. As far as pumpkin beers this one is pretty good.

shadey (2068) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 26, 2013
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.

TheHOFF43 (2014) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - APR 10, 2013
Bottle. Pours a weirdish brown. Nice pumpkin aroma, flavor isnt good at all. I hate pumpkin beers. Super thin mouthfeel.

ContemplateBeer (1945) - 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.

DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 30, 2016
Poured into a perfect pint from a bottle. 2.75 A: Lightly hazed medium orange color. One finger of frothy beige head that falls quickly and leaves no lacing. 2.5 S: This may be the weakest beer Iíve ever smelled in terms of its pumpkininess. The actual pumpkin comes through fairly well, but the spices just arenít strong enough. Cinnamon and nutmeg are there, but you really have to focus to tease them out. Aside from that, thereís caramel, molasses, and spring water. 2.5 T: Like the nose, the taste isnít bad, itís just hard to find. Super weak spices, just a hint of molasses, and not enough pumpkin to satisfy even the most sensitive of tasters. The beer itself is weak and near flavorless. Hints of caramel and molasses, but thatís it. 2.5 M: Even the mouthfeel is lacking. Medium body. It feels heavier than it is and lacks creaminess. Carbonation level is fine. 2.0 D: I go hard on the pumpkin beer each year and this one is by far the least exciting one Iíve had in years. Iím bummed I bought a sixer of this but happy that this is the last bottle. ★ 1,079 characters DavoleBomb, Sep 12, 2015
