3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12fl oz. bottle. Pours a nearly clear, slightly dark orange with a half finger, off-white head that fades to a thin film quickly.
Aroma is semi-sweet. Notes of pumpkin pie and spices.
Taste is mild compared to the aroma. Not overly bitter or malty with a slightly spiced pumpkin aftertaste.
Low to medium body with a medium carbonation. Fairly crisp and clean in the mouth. Refreshing and drinkable.
Overall not bad but not the greatest. Could have a stronger flavour to match the aroma, and a bit more of a feeling in the mouth. Worth a try if you can’t get any other pumpkin brew. Cheers!

This beer tastes artificial and contrived. I imagine a Budweiser being altered with Mrs. Smith's pie filling.

It came in a variety pack with some of my favorite flavors and I wasn’t too impressed. The only thing I enjoyed about it was the aroma. Had a good scent, but I wasn’t very impressed with the taste. It’s not the worst beer by any means, it’s just mediocre.

Not bad. Pours a nice orange. Aromas of nice sweet butter and pumpkin. Flavors fall short. No sweetness.. A bit bitter on the end. Average.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Surprisingly not cloudy. I expected a bit more haziness. Too much carbonation. Head evaporates quickly. Aroma was surprisingly citrusy...almost a spring/summer beer aroma. Very little pumpkin in the taste. Starts more bitter than it finishes.

Pours a honey golden mildly murky color. Short white head that fades very quickly. Banana bread nose. Medium body with a crispy carbonation. Subtle pumpkin notes are balanced by the malt.

12 fl. oz. on tap @ McGreevy’s. Pours clear orange with a low head. Aroma is malts with some pumpkin and spices. Flavor is more bland, with the pumpkin and spices more on the background. Not bad, but has "big brewery" written all over it.

Very cinnamony smell, taste is the same, smooth and malty, tad bit watery but good pumpkin taste

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Twelve oz bottle. Nose is mildly pumpkin and wheat. Taste is deceptively good pumpkin, mild wheat presence. Body is thinner and lively. Not a bad beer though. Better than expected.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
For a guy that is not the biggest fan of pumpkin beers I didn’t mind this one as much as some of the more "crafty" labels. Pours a hazy golden amber with minimal white head. Nose is all pumpkin and some cinnamon and nutmeggy notes. Flavor is pumpkin, wheat, and spice. Not as much spice as the aroma as in the taste. Pleasantly surprised.

12 oz. bottle from Mike’s fridge. Pours a cloudy orange with a small off-white head. Pretty nice aroma- the pumpkin spice is far from overwhelming and balanced with sweet malts and wheat. The flavor is a slightly less satisfying version of the same. Light-bodied, with low to moderate carbonation and a thin, smooth mouthfeel. Not bad.
