Bottle. Aroma: Holy shit, this is probably the most aromatic pumpkin beer I've laid my nose on. Cinnamon, nutmeg, clove. Smells amazing. Taste thin body with a nice crisp finish. You don't get much of the pumpkin flavor until after the beer leaves your mouth. One of the more refreshing pumpkin beers.

I see a lot of negative overall ratings for this beer but if you’re a fan of wheat beers and you love pumpkin pie, you will love this beer.

Its body has a clear, golden amber color with a thin off white head. The body is full of visible carbonation and still the head quickly fizzles down to just a very thin wispy layer. Lacing is minimal and very slick. The aroma is very pleasing but light. There are notes of cinnamon toast, light grain and apple cinnamon cereal. Like the aroma the flavor is light bodied and a little thin. Also there is no real pumpkin flavor. It does have a nice apple cinnamon crumb cake/carrot cake like taste. The finish is quick and fairly clean with maybe just a little bit of sweet spice hanging on. It has lots of active carbonation and with its thin texture it makes for a fizzy feel on the tongue.

A solid seasonal and one of my favorite pumpkin beers. There are so many pumpkin beers and it is nice to find one that stands out.

Amber copper, white head, no persistance. Nose is sweet malty and spicy with cinnamon. Body is light, watery palate, watery taste, just some sugary sweetness. Not so tasty.

Orange hue. Aroma of spiced pumpkin pie. Flavor follows suit… decent pumpkin flavor with nice notes of nutmeg, cinnamon, and coriander. Real lively carbonation.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance had a very clear, golden-orange color with an inch and a half thick, fluffy white head.
The smell had pumpkin, some cinnamon and nutmeg, some ginger.
The taste took the previously mentioned flavors and added some coriander.
The palate sat at about a medium and was slightly sessionable. Carbonation assaults the tongue and mouth more so than other "pumpkin ales" leaving a watery aftertaste and a dull finish.
Overall, this is just an average pumpkin ale. It was much better combined as a Black & Tan with the Blue Fin Stout by Shipyard.
