Bottle. A- Pumpkins, spices, wheat. A- Orange color, cloudy liquid, white head. T- Pumpkins, spices, cinnamon. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, spiced finish. O- Strong pumpkin and spices tones make this a little off putting. Could be a lot worse, but I have had much better pumpkin ales.

I think I have decided I don’t like pumpkin brews; tried a lot this fall; this was one of the lower rated. ugly clear pour. aroma of pumpkin and malt. taste was malty and pumpkin sweet.

The aroma might be this beer best trait, the taste of cinnamon and pumpkin gets a little overwhelming after a while. This is a decent thanksgiving beer but just for the season ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tastes like a light ale with pumpkin added. Decent, but not really great as beer seems "watery". Might not buy next year. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tastes fake. Too much spice, too carbonated and the head vanishes. Stay away.

It’s Thanksgiving, so why not? I enjoyed this more this year than last. Nice pumpkin and yam aroma. Easy to drink. Decent pumpkin flavor; it seems natural, not artificial. Nice finish. Maybe some citrus in there. Not the best pumpkin ale I’ve had, but I wouldn’t turn one down this time of year.

jcr (2160) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Bottle. Light amber body with a fizzy, off-white head. Light aroma of toasted grain with hint of cinnamon, all spice and clove. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly bitter. thin to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Light pumpkin and spice taste is preferable to heavily spiced pumpkin ales. Still, a little more taste would have helped this beer.

Out of the bottle to a plastic judging cup. Pumpkin spice moderate with clove in nice support. Restrained wheat in the background. Clear deep-gold/harvest sun orange with a full white head that lingers throughout. Leaves s tight collar around the glass with wispy blanket across the top of small bubbles. Taste is overt pumpkin spice throughout the taste. Slight orange peel in the back half of the palate. Has a semi-dry finis, with a little lingering bitterness. Overall i am not a fan of pumpkin beers, but this one is rather nice.
