Clear amber pour, little head. Good spicy pumpkin aroma (not really a beer smell, but I like it). I donít really like the pumpkin flavor in the beer however. Its just a beer, with pumpkin.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is a beautiful amber color, with a medium-sized head. The taste and aroma are delicious - very reminiscent of pumpkin pie with notes of pumpkin, cinnamon, and some other spices. You can also detect some nuttiness. This is a great beer for fall or winter.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle. Pours amber with thin tan head. Aroma is strong and sweet - exactly like pumpkin pie. Taste is quite sweet and subtle as well, with the pumpkin and spice flavours coming through. Slight bitterness at the finish, but sweetness is more prevalent. This is a really nice fall beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a clear copper-orange color. Beautiful creamy white head that lasts forever and leaves good lacing. Mild aroma of allspice, cinnamon and earthy hops. Flavor has a hint of pumpkin, but with a weird, offputting tartness. Some mild notes of cinnamon and clove. Medium mouthfeel and a clean finish. Beautiful looking beer, but not the best pumpkin out there.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled on 11/2/2010. This pumpkin beer pours a deep reddish orange amber color from a 12oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity, spicy and sweet, a touch of nutmeg and cinnamon. A medium bodied pumpkin beer. The malts are fruity, bready and sweet. The hops are herbal and spicy with some cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. Nice balance between malt and spices. A touch on the sweet side, but is somewhat balanced by the spices. A nice fall beer. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Red-brown color, creamy off-white head. Pronounced almost no aroma. It did some some lacing on my lager glass. Very light weak spice sent. Very light pumpkin tastes, some cinnamon and nutmeg in the aftertaste. Creamy, medium bodied, fresh. Somewhat thin and watery mouthfeel. Nails the style, in a bland way. Nothing to get you real excited but doable.
