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

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.

Beachmaster (174) - Oklahoma, USA - OCT 26, 2014
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.

GIJOE (688) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - OCT 21, 2014
Pours golden. Thin white head. Nose is like spiced apple cider. Taste is much the same. Not too sweet. Thin, a little fizzy. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not sure why rated so poorly....This is a great pumpkin beer compared to most others out there. Nice pumpkin flavor that is rich and not artificial or left with nothing else to stand on body-wise. Good complexity with true cinnamon and spice notes. Good brew!

lownote (102) - USA - OCT 19, 2014
Pours a golden yellow with a couple inch thick head that dissipates after a couple minutes from bottle. Aroma smells like fall spices and is fairly fragrant. Taste is wheaty with some cinnamon, allspice, and cloves. Its light bodied and sweet. Not really memorable but for the price, its a decent deal.

Better then expected. Pours an ugly yellow with a white head. Smells good, spices and pumpkin. Taste is just like sweet pumpkin pie, very spiced, especially in the aftertaste. Some carrot cake and nutmeg too maybe, a hint of fairness, but very unique and different. Had in the bottle.

An ok pumpkin beer. Pours a nice clear orange with little head. Smells nice, like pumpkin and spices, apple cinnamon. Taste however is lacking. Starts off with a bit of pumpkin, but then tastes empty. Too watery, and not enough alcohol. Had in the bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
