Bottle. Pours a deep slightly hazy orange with a creamy off white head. Aroma has some subtle pumpkin notes with most of the standard spices, cinnamon, nutmeg. Flavor starts with the same, a little vegetable-y with some spiciness, a bit on the potpourri side with a sweet finish. Medium body and a soft carbonation. A little heavy on that potpourri note but not bad

Translucent amber with a bit of white head. Aroma and taste are exactly as expected from a stand gravity pumpkin, and perhaps a little richer. Gingery spicy taste into the finish, and recedes in to pumpkiny earthiness. $3 rogue garage sale

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Poured a caramel color ale with a rather large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of caramelized malt with some well-balanced notes of pumpkin, cinnamon and cloves. Taste is also a well-balanced mxi between some pumpkin notes with some cinnamon and some cloves with some caramelized malt. Body is about average with good carbonation. Really enjoyable pumpkin beer.

A pretty good pumpkin ale despite the low abv. Sweet spice notes. Like a pumpkin pie you would find in a bakery. Foamy head. I sense the nutmeg, sugar and cinnamon more prominent than other brews I have tried. Smooth washdown. Less drier than I anticpated. It’s like a brew you enjoy as an appetizer or a nightcap. Nice brew.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Big bottle- pours clear burnt orange, minimal tan head. Nose is lots of spices, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, mild citrus and then pumpkin vegetal notes and some bread malts. Expected more spice on the tongue but the vegetal pumpkin notes come through. Thinnish with not much hop bitterness and some sweetness but the spices fade quite a bit for what the nose suggests. Drinkable pumpkin beer but the body is lacking.

This is the best pumpkin beer with raw pumpkin flavors that I have had. Raw flavors balance the light holiday spice flavors. Body is a little light for my liking but other than that, very balanced!

From the 750 ml. bottle The pour is a nice looking mahogany brown with a modest off-white head that settles down after a few minutes. The aroma brings out the expected pumpkin spices I would expect from the style with a toasted malty sweetness thrown in. The body is medium. The taste emphasizes the maltiness more than the pumpkin and spices which made it pretty good but a slight letdown from the aroma. I kind of liked it.

Pours a hazy deep copper with a moderate slow dissipation off white head. Aroma is ginger, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin, and some malty sweetness. Flavour is ginger, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin, mild bitterness, biscuits, toast, and sweet maltiness. Overall a good balance of malt, spice, and real, pumpkin.
