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.

12 oz bottle. Slight aroma of pumpkin and spice. It is very drinkable and goes down smoothly and than the pumpkin and spice flavor/taste really kicks i

Deep gold, clear, off-white head. Aroma of neutral malt, fruity notes, ginger and pumpkin spice. Flavor of grainy and fairly dry malt (the ginger-like spicy note may contribute to dry impression), fruity notes (pear), pumpkin spice.

12 oz bottle. Slight aroma of pumpkin and spice. It is very drinkable and goes down smoothly and than the pumpkin and spice flavor/taste really kicks in. Not the best pumpkin beer I have had but very nice.

This was served in a chilled glass rimmed with brown sugar. My second favorite pumpkin ale, I find it very drinkable.

The aroma was the best part. A little weak overall but not bad. There are definitely much better pumpkin beers.

On sale at ABC a little while back - why the hell not? The aroma reminds me of carrot cake and nutmeg, which sounds nice but cardboard was evident too. It tasted spicy and semi-sweet with a raw pumpkin finish that was dry and again, light... watery almost. Typical pumpkin beer the way I see it.

From 12oz bottle to lager glass. Pour is a light copper, lively bubbles with thin white head. Nose is spicy, pumpkin, malt. Taste is sweet, very light bodied. Carbonated finish, very light and mediocre pumpkin beer.

luttonm (2138) - Belgrade, SERBIA - OCT 26, 2013
12oz bottle in Boston. Slight haze, golden yellow. Big fall spiced aroma, fits in with the season, but reminds me too much of baking and mulled wine. Taste is better than I expected, very baking-spice heavy and a little spicy, a bit like a red hot candy. Cinnamon, clove, decent ’base’ beer flavor. Alright, certainly not my favorite style.

Pours with a white foam with a hint of pumpkin and spice. This is almost too much pumpkin taste so this would be a good half glass ---Rated via Beer Buddy
