Appearance: Pours a hazy copper.
Aroma: Aroma of pumpkin spices, clove, nutmeg.
Taste: Light pumpkin, clove, wheat, sweet at the end.
Palate:Medium light body.

Summary: Not a bad pumpkin beer. Had the smashed version a few years ago and hated it so this exceeded expectations.

bread, bubblegum, butterscotch, vanilla, clove, golden, clear, minimal head. Sweet and spice. Not terrible, but not one of my favourites.

Easily worst beer of Maine trip. Didnít even finish bottle at home. Pours light, wimpy orange- slightly hazy. No lasting head or lacing. Pumpkin pie faux spices dominate- nutmeg, cinnamon, clove. Minimal pumpkin. Bit metallic. Super light mouthfeel. Not much going for it. Meh.

Cinnamon anyone? Balance isnít whatís necessarily expected sometimes with a pumpkin ale, and this one follows suit. Sweet and spicy smelling, light amber color with a nice off-white head with medium bubbles. I was not kidding about the cinnamon: thereís a lot. So if you like cinnamon and pumpkin flavor, thisíll be your bag. If not, not. I liked it just fine.

This light gold beer has a mild cinnamon spice aroma. It is mildly spicy while retaining many characteristics of your typical wheat beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a bubbly straw with a white head. Aroma is of spice, light pumpkin, and corn. Tastes of light pumpkin, pumpkin pie spices, and straw. A bit lager like. Has a light body with high carbonation and smooth spice aftertaste.

A bit watery but it makes up for it with a nice spicy flavor. More of a summery beer than fall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark yellow/clear pour. Small white diminishing head. Little lacing. Very sweet. Spice and white sugar aroma. Pumpin, cinnamon, nutmeg, grain, and fresh dough. Not a bad pumpkin beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nothing special or out of the ordinary, another pumpkin pie spice beer, lots of cinnamon and nutmeg. Light bodied, overly sweet aroma, flat metallic taste.

Pours a golden color. Aroma is of pumpkin and spice. Very light and crisp tasting. Can taste the pumpkin but I wouldn't say it's over powering. It's a light beer that drinks easily. Overall I would say it's boring.
