2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pour is a ruddy brown color with a pretty nice beige head that sadly is short-lived. Aromas are pie spices and some strange and rotting vegetation. Flavor is about the same. Canít pick out the pumpkin very well, but the rest of th pie spicing is there as is a strange mix of earthy leaf-litter and some sweetness from the malt. Strange pumpkin ale... strange.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours clear dark amber with small creamy head. Aroma is cardboardy malt with a little vanilla-nothing much in the way of spices. Flavor is mostly cardboardy malt with some spice presence but nothing discernable. Well below average for a spiced beer.

Simply put.. Itís pumpkin pie as a beer.
Very easy to drink, light tasting, and has a very distinguishing taste. Pumpkin spices hit immediately and dominates the taste throughout the drink. The lingering taste afterwards tastes just like a nice Thanksgiving pumpkin pie. Makes me eager for the fall.

12 oz. bottle. Pours clear amber with thin off white head. Aroma of cinnamon, allspice, light malt. Taste of malt nicely blended with moderate pumpkin pie spices, appropriate hop balance. Thin body. Easy drinking, good on a cool evening outdoors.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours light brown with a fizzy off-white head. Aroma of burnt spice. Almost unpalatable flavor of watery burnt spice, and overcooked green vegetables. Palate is light and watery, with just a hint of the spice lingering. Wow, thatís total garbage.

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
In the bottle from HyVee CB. Pours brownish-amber with a thin off-white head. Horrid aroma of boiled broccoli or Brusselís sprouts. Burnt spice aroma as well. Not pleasant. Has a watery sweet taste that leaves a burning harsh to the tongue finish. The dead animal aroma is hard to stomach. This is a fairly crappy pumpkin beer that lies in the category of pumpkin beers that make people hate the style.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bought a case of it in PA, I was in New York and could not find it. I detected vanilla in the aroma, the color was amber with a nice full creamy head. The flavor was malty with vanilla, allspice, and a hint of pumpkin. This had a pleasent flavor and was easy to drink.

in bottle. blech! sour smell. not in a good way. Taste is better, by far. I taste cloves, some cinnamon, and then thereís a peppery aftertaste, which is very interesting. Theyíre not making a pumpkin pie beer - this is a pumpkin beer. beer is a murky orangey amber color, with some beige head.
