Bottle. Nice aroma: cinnamon, apples... basically smells like pumpkin pie. Thin and watery on the palate with a hint of spice but a lot of pale lager characteristics. Meh...

2.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
[Bottle, thanks Guerde] Pours golden with no head, even upon agitation. Aroma is nice--cinnamon, pumpkin and nutmeg. As Guerde said, this is basically sparkling water with a little flavor in it. Extremely thin. Not good at all.

2.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(bottle) Pours a light gold with little to no head. Aroma is strong of nutmeg and pumpkin, and intensifies as the beer warms, actually quite nice. The taste is not nearly as good as the aroma, and tastes like mineral water with just a subtle hint of slightly sweet pumpkin flavoring. The beer is also highly carbonated which detracts from the palate, and there is barely a finish present. Not very enjoyable.

Pours a nice golden with a white head. Super strong nutmeg and spicy pumpkin character, as well as sweet malt. Pumpkin pie in a bottle with a light hop finish. Very nice.

Ah, the autumn beers have finally arrived. Since this is my first year doing rate beer during the fall, I have the privilege of rating many delicious pumokin ales. This has been the lowest rated one I have seen, but I have to ask, why was this rated so low. The aroma of the beer is great. There is the aroma of cinnamon, malt, and of course, pumpkin. Decent aroma. I would like to smell more spices, such as the cinnamon, and some nutmeg would be nice. Smells like an awesome pumpkin pie. The appearance is decent; although it is not as dark as I would like it to be. The Post Road, and the DFH Punkin Ale have a much better appearance. There is not other way to say this than saying that this beer taste just like pumpkin pie beer. I can taste the whipped cream, the crust, the pumpkin filling, and the cinnamon. Great flavor. The only problem with the flavor is the malts are cheap. I can tell that this company did not splurge on their malt budget. The other flavors are great, and the spice could come out a little more. The pumpkin pie flavor has not been equaled in any other pumpkin beer that I have tried. The palate is not that great. The beer is somewhat smooth, but not creamy like Post Road. Overall, this beer is pretty good for a cheap fall beer. I would try it again. I cannot wait till the winter.

Poured from: bottle. Drank from: Duvel tulip. Temp: cellar. Color: crystal clear orange. Head: white, fades completely. Lacing: none. Aromas: pumpkin, ginger, cinnamon. Body: light. Texture: thin. Carbonation: mild. Flavors: sweet and spicy with a light saltiness. Overall: boring mouthfeel, not very beerlike, yet manages to be fairly enjoyable. Would drink again but wouldn’t buy.

Bright gold color with small head and little lacing. Aroma is dominantly pumpkin. Flavor is all pumpkin with notes of cinnamon. Simple and good overall, but I’m not a big pumpkin fan.
