Murrow (69) - North Carolina, USA - SEP 6, 2012
Pours a deep gold, quickly thinning white head. Up front aroma of allspice and pumpkin. Pleasant pumpkin flavor, slightly sweet, with allspice and clove. Very subtle hop bitterness underlying, minimal malt profile. Thin mouthfeel, light carbonation, little hint of alcohol. A pleasantly flavored, but altogether not very complex ale.

Tap... with cinnamon rim (don’t judge me). Needs it to be honest. Nice darkish orange-amber, nice head... but almost thin body with supremely mild taste.

AKORN (140) - Virginia, USA - SEP 12, 2014
Golden and clear appearance white a small white head. Malty, doughy, pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg aroma. Carbonation and citrus that fades quick are my first taste. Strong cinnamon, spices, dough, with some pumpkin with an unusual after taste, no bad though. Light and crisp. Good beer

TheCaptMatey (30) - Ohio, USA - SEP 11, 2014
Poured a bright amber colour with a medium head which dissipated rather quickly. Spiced aroma rivals that of a cider. Flavor is full of spices, particularly notes nutmeg and cinnamon. Not a lot of pumpkin flavor in this brew. Decent carbonation and smooth drink.

arkurzynski (1519) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 10, 2014
Amber orange pour. Nose of fruity pumpkin, mild spice and faint vanilla. Flavor is mildly sweet pumpkin meat with some spice. Light and easy drinking. Not sure why all the negative rates. Very light but solid and poundable.

basaywhat (49) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - SEP 7, 2014
This is a pretty basic pumpkin beer. Watery aromas of subtle spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, clove). Not a lot going on with the flavor,very little pumpkin flavor. Not a bad there are many better pumpkin beers than this.

bkurtz (784) - PERU - SEP 5, 2014
Pours a clear golden with a fairly large, quickly dissipating head. Aromas of a pumpkin pie. Aromas carry through in the taste. Light with a metallic finish disappoints.

tmongoose (1294) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - SEP 3, 2014
12oz bottle shared. Pours ligh golden yellow orange color with a quickly disappearing white head. The aroma cinnamon, nutmeg, wheat and maybe allspice. The flavor a bit strange. Malt. Wheat and a cloying sweetness of minimal pumpkin and said spices. Overall just ok.

berkshirejohn (4526) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2014
12oz bottle from Wegman’s, West Seneca, NY. AMber with a ring of white head; pumpkin aroma; cinnamon taste and finish, but also bland and watery. I’m not exactly a fan of this style, and this one’s worse than most.

njnut (237) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Pours a amber with minimal head and lace. Ends up just clinging to sides of glass in seconds. Aroma is pumpkin pie or spice cookie. Taste is the same, and sweet. Tastes like a store bought pie to me. If you like to drink pie than here’s your beer. Seeing lower ratings sometimes and I try things I say what are they talking about but not this time. Not my cup of tea.
