Pours a golden color. Aroma is of pumpkin and spice. Very light and crisp tasting. Can taste the pumpkin but I wouldn't say it's over powering. It's a light beer that drinks easily. Overall I would say it's boring.

Pumpkin beers.....probably the biggest roll o’ the dice for North American styles. These dice rolled fairly low. Minimal traces of pumpkin on both taste and smell make for a disappointing pumpkin beer. Also, clear golden beers with foamy white heads don’t look very Autumnal. There is however, a decent spicy taste of your usual pumpkin-spice suspects. Not a bad taste, just not a very pumpkinny taste.

Bottle to shaker glass. Pours light amber, quick one finger head, no lacing. Aroma of spiced apple cider. Tastes like pumpkin pie with light cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger notes. Light bodied, highly carbonated, thin mouth feel. Finishes fairly flat and dry. Blah!

Drank from a twelve ounce bottle, stolen from my buddy Dan’s six pack . Thank you Dan. Aroma isn’t overly pumpkiny as many pumpkin beers are. Taste is also pretty mild for a pumpkin beer but unfortunately light in any other flavor.

Mild aroma of spice, pale clear orange color no head. Nice taste of Apple cider. Watery feel with a pleasant cider finish.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear bright orange color with a small white head. A light sweet almost citrus apple nose. This is interesting; grainy, earthy, not much spices. Apples, ripe. More spice and apple cider. Odd one. Not much obvious pumpkin.

Amber appearance with a thin white head. Aroma is light pumpkin with a bit of spice. Light flavor, a bit of pumpkin up front with a little cinnamon. A little earthy finish with a mildly bitter aftertaste. Nice, easy to drink if not the most flavorful pumpkin beer. Wife: 3.7

rumproasts (3498) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 27, 2014
bottle. Pale amber with one finger head. Strong fake cinnamon taste, like atomic fireballs. Sweet with some light malt. I just can’t get into this at all.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a clear light amber, with a dense white head that fades quickly. No lacing. Nose is pumpkin pie spice. Taste is nice, with pumpkin pie spice up front, and apple cider on the finish. Finish is short and clean. Pretty good pumpkin beer--a cut above most of this type.
