Bottle from Capone’s. Pours copper with medium off-white head. Nose is caramel malt and pumpkin spice. Tastes caramel malty, with the pumpkin taking a back door to the malt, and fairly smooth.

Ok pumpkin ale. Relatively thick with pumpkin and I believe nutmet. Starts out decent, but gets very bland as the beer goes along. There are much better pumpkin beers out there.

Situation: Halloween Eve watching Penn State-Michigan; still no defense for us, RichRod!
Glassware: Yuengling pint...
Appearance: Dark chestnut body (darker than expected with the typically stubborn Sam Adams off-white head...
Aroma: pumpkin spice leaps forth; some other underlying hops and spices are present as well...
Palate: medium-bodied, lightly oily in texture; inoffensive in its profile; a flourish early, flat late...
Taste: more than a bit malty, although the pumpkin spice may have something to do with that; enjoyable softened by the malt profile...
Overall: I have little interest in vegetable-infused eer, but for a holiday, I will admit that the beer as the maltiness to substitute for an Octoberfest and stand out a bit in its uniqueness...a second bottle tonights reveals a bit more drinkability and pleasure...

smells like hands holding pennies. nutmeg, grain, not too pumpkin-y, but at least it doesn’t taste like butter.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 9/20
Faint aroma of spices. Unexpected off-flavors; too much spice, no pumpkin, odd taste. Astringent with a rotten aftertaste.

This beer has a strong vanilla smell with a with a hint of cinnamon. Has a small head with decent lacing. Has a awesome dark red color to it. The beer has a strong spicey cinnamon beginning flavor with a pumpkin , nutmeg aftertaste. This is a full-bodied beer with medium carbonation. Really enjoyed this well rounded beer with a fantastic finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a shining amber with an offwhite head. Smells of pumpkin spice, allspice and all. The flavor is not too overwhelming as it is more pumpkin then spice. Smooth autumn finish.
