Pours deep orange with a small head. Sweet pumpkin on the nose. Flavour is sweet pumpkin and bubblegum followed by a boozy bitterness. I’ve just realized that I don’t like pumpkin.

I’m just going to agree with what BeerBaron617 just wrote on here.
We split this bottle and I have to say that it’s my favorite of the pumpkin beers I have had from the fall (granted I have only had three).
It’s a very nice translucent copper brown color with a thin off white head. It’s got a great subtle aroma of squash and other vegetables and a hint of spice in the background. Its got a nice medium mouthfeel with a good amount of carbonation. Very nice flavor. Quite balanced, and the aroma and flavor translate almost perfectly.
This would be a great beverage to go along with a meal because it’s not overpowering with "pumpkin" flavor.

I shared this bomber with MereLikesBeer. Soo.. I recently had the Southern Tier Pumking, and rated it very highly. However, after having tried this beer, I believe that this is more true to the style of a proper pumpkin ale. The Southern Tier was more of a dessert beer. This one was balanced right, and had great mouthfeel, and great pumpkin and nutmeg flavors and aromas, without being overbearing. Very good stuff!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden reddish amber with a small white head that quickly dissipates.
The aroma is surprisingly fresh and clean with notes of pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, caramel and grass. But here is also a somewhat annoying hop note.
The taste is, as is expected by this brewery, a bit of a mess, but it’s not a total failure. Sweet one-sided caramel malts, mild grassy hops and edgy flavors of pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg. The finish has some sweet alcohol, a mild bitterness and dry notes of pie crust and spices.
Medium body, a bit cloying in the mouth and then semi-dry in the finish. All in all, not very impressive, but as noted it’s not a complete failure.
