My favorite pumpkin style beer. Great taste and aroma - not overwhelmingly strong in any way.
Withheld perfect score due to price

Too much vanilla and spices. Too sweet but a nice color and finish. Thought it would be better given the price.

Nice medium spice aroma. Taste is very layered with spices, pumpkin flavor and light sweetness and earthiness to it.

Bottle at America on Tap
Brown sugary caramel maltiness with plenty of pie spices to cut through it, not the worst pumpkin beer I’ve ever had, might even like it in small doses.

Sampled on tap at Carolina Cinemas Charlotte. Nose of vanilla, spices. Tasted of Lucky Charms, and long, sticky, and (for me) undesirable finish on the tongue. I can see why it would be popular in and amongst the style, but not something I personally care to try again.

Easily one of the best pumpkin beers I’ve had. The pumpkin spice is very good and understated from start to finish. Tried courtesy of Ryan and Liz in 2015.

I’m not a pumpkin beer drinker but my wife loves them and since this is considered one of the best I thought why not. The smell is sweet pumpkin. Alcohol is well hidden. I can see why for the style it’s so high rated.

Body has a gilded orange hue with minimal dusting of white head. Delicious smell of pumpkin, candied yams, nutmeg, and vanilla. Light citrus spice taste followed by warm pumpkin flavors, banana bread, toasted coconut, and faint herbals. Creamy mouthfeel with very smooth finish.

Vibrant pumpkin and graham cracker aroma, vanilla and cinnamon too. Taste is just like the aroma with some hops in the finish.
