Did not have much aroma, and I did not smell any pumpkin. Had a very weak color. Disappointing just a very bland ale, with no real pumpkin taste. The beer finished clean without any after taste.

JPDIPSO (5597) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 24, 2016
Lightly hazed golden liquid. Small lid of off-white bubbles. An interesting combination of herbs and spices in the nose. Basil, cloves, nutmeg, oregano, and cinnamon all seem to be present. Fairly dry with light non-descript spices in the background. Salt and touch of dry malt in the finish. Some of the spices, and the crust, seems to missing some filling. 4/10

Orange amber. Mild fruity pumpkin. Flavor is a weird highly hopped, bitter pilsner with some pumpkin thrown in. Bitter finish. Odd.

Bottle:   Very light example.   Nice head and lacing, but thats about as good as it gets.   Unlike so many others that seem to overdo some aspect of the beer, this one just is extremely light on the spices.   Pretty much the perfect example of a very boring Pumpkin.   Too light and really lacking in any flavor.   Damn...

Hazy orange pour with a white head. Aroma is a little pumpkin and nutmeg. Taste is artificial. Tinny. Has pumpkin and nutmeg flavor but off taste dominates the drink. So-so lacing. Tinny aftertaste.

nuplastikk (5785) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 14, 2012
Tap at Shipwrecked. Filtered orange-tan. Thin, oily head. Clean and straightforward, with classic pumpkin pie spices. Quite sessionable for the style, not overly sugar, well attenuated I suppose. After the disturbingly bad IPA, this is quite a pleasant surprise. Standard, but drinkable and well done.

tmoreau (3703) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - OCT 18, 2012
Sampled as part of a flight "plank" of the current drafts at the brewpub bar. Poured to plastic with a hazed, orange/amber, with an off white/ecru head, and dots & dashes of lacing. The nose was perfumey pumpkin and only light spicing. A little less than medium bodied, the flavor offered mellow malt, and a hop bitterness that was moderate and somewhat lingering. The finish was on the dry side. Not a kick-ass seasonal, but this sample was fairly pleasant.

Pumpkin, cinneman, and nutmeg aroma. Cloudy amber with off-white head. Pumpkin, nutmeg, lemon flavours. Full-bodied with medium lingering bitterness
