Bottle at a co-workers house, thanks for the opportunity, I think. Big sweet brown sugar with plenty of pie spices and little else beer like from this bottle. I guess on the plus side the spices surely drowned out and diacetyl that was probably in this.

euniceradio (449) - Worthington, Minnesota, USA - SEP 16, 2015
12oz bottle to tulip glass. Pours clear gold, soda ring head. Aroma of old malts, dusty pumpkin. Taste is watered down pumpkin soda. Mouthfeel is ultra light, with tons of carb. This beer sucks. Would rather drink pumpkin pie and Bud Light in a blender.

September 7, 2015 - bottle from Total Wine opened as part of my pumpkin fest. Clear golden pour with some head. Aroma was grainy with some cinnamon. Taste was grainy, sweet malt and cinnamon, maybe a hint of spice in there.

hman43 (1198) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - SEP 6, 2015
It pours golden with a small head. It has aromas of nutmeg, pumpkin, and a combination of spices that give it a plastic like aroma that isn’t all that pleasant. It has flavors or brown sugar, cinnamon, pumpkin, nutmeg, and other spices. It is quite sweet, but a bit too much on the way down.

TizzleJizzle (781) - Garland, Texas, USA - SEP 5, 2015
12 oz bottle. Poured a clear yellow color with a thin white head. Taste of pumpkin spice, clove, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Lively carbonation, thin-medium body and a watery texture. Overall, not bad

Fatehunter (2271) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - SEP 3, 2015
Pours a thin head on a clear straw body. The aroma is lemon and dry grain. The taste is mild lemon bitter and overripe apples. The texture is crisp. Not enjoyable.
