3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark coppery burnt orange color with minimal head with minimal lacing. Prominent pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg aromas. Spicy flavors that starts out mildly sweet but continues into a more bitter cinnamon flavor. Actually quite dry toward the end with prominent cinnamon. Moderate carbonation with dry mouthfeel. LIttle hop presence detectable, but maybe some lemon/lime peel. Medium bitter finish. This is an excellent pumpkin with more focus on the spice than most similar versions.

Ridiculous aroma... Smells like pumpkin pie and reminds me of Thanksgiving. One of my favorite fall beers. Nice amber color, good rich body but clean finish. Great beer but not meant to be cellared.

A reddish orange beer with hardly any head. The aroma is pumpkin and lots of cinnamon. The flavor is like dough and pumpkin pie.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very pumpkiny! Slightly hazy copper orange in color. Solid aroma of pumpkin pie with a hint of caramel. Spicy notes upfront with clean malt and pumpkin flavor. Followed by a nice herbal bitterness. Overall i’m not big on pumpkin ales but this one is nice. Hat tip to BarZigKin for sharing.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours dark orange with light brown and amber. The aroma is all pumpkin pie, brown sugar, and light cinnamon. The taste follows suit but, it's more mellow than most pumpkin beers. This one is a smooth pumpkin beer. Even though it's on the desert side, it's not too much in any way. Rich, malty, tasty and very drinkable. Not bad.

Drank from bottle. A good pumpkin beer but the smell and taste of cinnamon is a little overwhelming. Everything else about this beer is done really well. Good desert beer

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A: Pours a dark copper ale with a single finger of tan foam which falls quickly to a sheet of the same. Spotty lacing.
S: Cinnamon and nutmeg up front with some sweet graham crust smells. Light pumpkin meat.
T: Lots of squash flavor, some sweet cheery like flavor with the spices.
M: Medium on thin body with soft carbonation leaving a slightly wet finish.
O: this is quite pumpkin foward. I can’t recall a beer I have had previously with so much pumpkin/vegetable flavor. I like how the spices were played here, would almost like to throw a dollop of whipped cream in here.
