Orange-colored, medium carbonation, balanced taste with little spice and nice pumpkin. Overall decent, but wildly over-priced, considering the abv.

Very well balanced, medium body with a medium frothy head. I like the light sweetness, medium spice, and easy drinkability. Probably the 3rd best pumpkin brew out of the last 10 I’ve had.

Slightly hazy orange, loose white head. Smells kind of citrusy hoppy, which is unusual for a pumpkin beer. Plenty of cinnamon and nutmeg and allspice, too. Flavor is spicy, but not muddled - each flavor pops. there is also some hops in the finish

650 ml. Pours a clear amber-orange with a lasting thin film of creamy bubbles. Pleasant spice-mix nose shows some allspice, cinnamon and nutmeg plus some caramelized brown sugar. Not surprisingly the taste is also dominated by the spices, with a bit of tart apple and leafy hop peaking through. Maybe a hint of squash and wheat in the finish. Near-medium body has medium carbonation and a decent balance. I normally don’t like such a spice-dominated pumpkin, but this one has a nice blend that works a bit better than most.

Strong flavors of cinnamon, ginger, lemon zest, and some slight nutmeg. Spicy and kind of bitter. Reminds me of Bitter Lemon Sodas for cocktails.

Draft. Disclaimer: I generally hate pumpkin ales. And this one’s no different. Although it gets some credit for going all in; it doesn’t try to disguise what it’s about at all. Gobs of pumpkin pie spice in the aroma and taste -- cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, etc. I couldn’t discern anything else, whether it be malt, hops, yeast -- you know, the things that usually go into beer. Palate struck me as thin. If you love pumpkin beers, this would be a: 8, 3, 8, 2, 14 = 3.5

On tap at STA tap room. I really liked this one..had a lot of spice to it compared to many other pumpkin ales. My wife called it pumpkin pie in a beer. Wish it had more substance to it so the taste would linger, spicy but thin - otherwise excellent stuff
