Tap at Green Dragon PDX. Really highlights the pumpkin and sweet spices. Honey aroma, really refreshing.

Not sure why rated so poorly....This is a great pumpkin beer compared to most others out there. Nice pumpkin flavor that is rich and not artificial or left with nothing else to stand on body-wise. Good complexity with true cinnamon and spice notes. Good brew!

Pours a golden yellow with a couple inch thick head that dissipates after a couple minutes from bottle. Aroma smells like fall spices and is fairly fragrant. Taste is wheaty with some cinnamon, allspice, and cloves. Its light bodied and sweet. Not really memorable but for the price, its a decent deal.

Better then expected. Pours an ugly yellow with a white head. Smells good, spices and pumpkin. Taste is just like sweet pumpkin pie, very spiced, especially in the aftertaste. Some carrot cake and nutmeg too maybe, a hint of fairness, but very unique and different. Had in the bottle.

An ok pumpkin beer. Pours a nice clear orange with little head. Smells nice, like pumpkin and spices, apple cinnamon. Taste however is lacking. Starts off with a bit of pumpkin, but then tastes empty. Too watery, and not enough alcohol. Had in the bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SoberDave (143) - Escondido, California, USA - OCT 17, 2014
Aroma promises a delicious pumpkin pie, great balance of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and pumpkin sweetness. This comes out in the very even-keeled flavour. Not overpowering at all, which allows the natural ale flavours to come out. A little bite, but fairly bland on the tongue. Iíve had better but Iím not complaining.

Light gold pour, white head that does not linger. nose is clove, nutmeg and cinnamon. Bittersweet. Middle has a light body and mouth feel, with a watered down soda thing going on. Finish is spicy like a ginger ale. Not for me.
