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

Bottle. Strong spicy aroma with the pumpkin pie spices of nutmeg, allspice and cinnamon as well as a bit of pumpkin. Pours orangish-golden colored with a thin white head with poor retention and lacing. Starts with mild pumpkin flavor with a thin body. Finishes smooth with the aforementioned spices asserting control, especially the cinnamon. Decent, but not a lot of pumpkin flavor mostly the spice.

Appearance: pours with a small beige head that dissipates quickly, the beer is a very clear golden color with the slightest bit of amber hues to it Aroma: pumpkin, sweet spice, ginger Taste: sweet, pumpkin, no bitterness, gingerbread Palate: light mouthfeel, lively carbonation, minimal aftertaste Overall: for such a light beer it's sweeter than expected, it's not so sweet that it's not sessionable though, not a bad beer for a warm October day ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2015 Bottle. Aroma is moderately strong pumpkin pie--nutmeg, allspice. Appearance is light yellowish brown with minimal head with decent lacing. Taste is measured pumpkin--identifiable as such but not over the top or overly sweet, with a little bit of citrus. Palate is crisp, light bodied with thin texture, average carbonation and dry finish. Overall, if you are looking for a pumpkin ale experience, then this would be a flavorful choice that doesnít beat you over the head, is a little bit different and is refreshing.

Originally rated on 11/2/14. Pours a clear golden body with medium carbonation and minimal head or lace. Aroma of allspice, it seems much more ícrispí than other beers. Flavor has the same spice to it and lots of honey with very little pumpkin. Rather unusual for a pumpkin beer, kinda like a pumpkin soda, but its not bad.

12 oz bottle poured at my brothers place in Methuen, MA. Pours a clear golden with no head. Smell is not good. I think itís supposed to be pumpkin but it smells off. Taste is about the same. Iíll drink it but I donít love it. Barely drinkable.
