Transfer from BA review on 8-23-12-
Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – Served a orange colored beer with almost no head. A very light film that is rather persistent does eventually fade leaving a light level of lacing.
Smell –Mostly of spice and pumpkin aroma. The cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice are complemented well with brown sugar, caramel and pumpkin aromas. Overall the spice is balanced by the sweet creating a pleasant liquid pumpkin pie smell.
Taste – A sweeter caramel and pumpkin flavor greet the tongue. While light in the spice department initially, soon flavors of all the pie spices that were present in the nose come to fruition. As the taste advances further the pumpkin grows even stronger while the caramel get replaced by some brown sugar and hazelnut flavors. At the end one is left with a satisfying semi-sweet pumpkin flavor on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – A medium and smooth body with a lighter level of carbonation. The creaminess and low carbonation coupled with the sweet pumpkin taste and spice make it very easy to drink. While at 8.6 % there is almost no boozy taste making this very easy to drink.
Overall – A sweet delicious brew. Like drinking a smooth liquid pumpkin pie. While not one I would want with great occasion it is a perfect dessert beer for the cooler fall days.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Dense & vibrant copper-amber color with a thin layer of bubbles resting softly on top, no enough to be called a "head". Aroma with heavy notes of pumpkin spice, cinnamon bread, toasted malts, nutmeg, & I get a very, very light hint of vanilla. Touch of earthiness from the hops, too. Taste is more of the same; the pumpkin spice explosion you’d expect, nutmeg, cinnamon, a little clove. Perhaps some ginger, too, but nutmeg seems to be the dominant spice in this beer. Yeasty & toasted, baked bread finish, a little astringent at times. A decent pumpkin beer, but I don’t know why people flip their ship over this beer’s release each year. I mean, it’s decent, but not the first pumpkin beer I’d ever reach for.

22 oz bottle. Pours a clear copper orange color with a half inch of white foam that settles to a cream edge head. Aroma is pumpkin pie spice profile; cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg and mild sweet pumpkin and vanilla. Flavor is pumpkin pie in a glass: same as above with buttery crust throughout. Alcohol is perfectly masked. Thin to medium bodied, spicy carbonation, buttery complex finish.

Bottle @ 2nd Tuesday Tasting. Pours a clear golden beer with a small white head on top. Aroma of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, old fruits. Flavor is very herbal, lots and lots of cinnamon, some pumpkin flavors. Like most other pumpkin beers, this is very herbal. Kinda like it, long herbal aftertaste. Overall a very herbal forward beer, as expected, quite okay.
