Pours light orange with light sweet pumpkin aroma. Heavy carbonation with a lot of wheat malt. Finishes with some nice cinnamon and nutmeg flavor ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The smell of pumpkin pie hits you immediately. Nice orange appearance. A very light refreshing beer. My favorite pumpkin beer so far!

Cinnamon cinnamon cinnamon. Not a good mix of spices, cinnamon overwhelms, minimal pumpkin pie taste. Very light mouthfeel, watery almost. Meh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

If you could ever use a beer as a 'control' for its type, this would be it. Nothing special but definitely a base to compare from. I've tasted better but I've also tasted worse in the pumpkin style and this always tends to set the bar. Cheap, clean, nostalgic pumpkin ale.

"easily worst of show. #10 of 10 poured straw yellow with a weak nose of cinnamon and nutmeg and little or no pumpkin. super light body and a one dimensional flavor."

Kbc Kennebunkport. Light amber pour. Smells of pumpkin go figure! And nutmeg. Amazing aroma! Taste is light and sweet. Tons of sugar.

The aroma is of yes pumpkin and spice. The appearance is a light amber gold. The taste is light on pumpkin and spice, with a nice sweet finish. Easy to drink, overall ok.

A very average and underwhelming pumpkin beer with a little spicy ginger like flavor. Pours orange amber with ok head and lacing. Tap.

12 oz bottle. Slight aroma of pumpkin and pie spices. It is a bit heavy on the sweet cinnamon. All in all not a bad pumpkin beer.

Poured from can into shaker. Pours a clear light orange color, two finger white head which rapidly diminishes to a ring on the glass edge. Aroma is typical pumpkin spices, but some hops, and sweetness. Taste is very sweet, with spices and some citrus and resin notes from the hops, but it isn’t particularly balanced. Mouthfeel is a bit thin. There are a lot of better pumpkin ales out there.
