Aroma promises a delicious pumpkin pie, great balance of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and pumpkin sweetness. This comes out in the very even-keeled flavour. Not overpowering at all, which allows the natural ale flavours to come out. A little bite, but fairly bland on the tongue. I’ve had better but I’m not complaining.

Clear straw golden with a medium sized white head, good lacing. Aroma of fresh pumpkin pie and spices. Taste of pumpkin, nutmeg and cinnamon
Nice pumpkin beer

Light gold pour, white head that does not linger. nose is clove, nutmeg and cinnamon. Bittersweet. Middle has a light body and mouth feel, with a watered down soda thing going on. Finish is spicy like a ginger ale. Not for me.

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."
