You can really taste the pumpkin spice in this one. Notes of alspice, clove. Nicely carbonated. Color is a brilliant amber. Head isn’t real thick and is a slightly off white. Wonderful breadyness. While I am drinking this warm, I have got to say that the spices are definitely pungent. This errs on the side of pumpkin spice rather than octoberfest. Definite lagering in use. Probably to promote the crisp/clean flavors going on. Would love to see this brewed on ale yeast. Just goes to show you what a genius spike is. Aftertaste is the only weakness here. Kind of just hangs out and doesn’t have much of an identity. Overall, best pumpkin beer on the market. Enjoyability 4.5/5.

Bottle from the source. Lots of spice in the nose here - everything you would expect and want in a pumpkin beer. Clove, coriander, allspice. Taste is the same. Lots of aromatics at work along with a sweet, malty ale. It’s pumpkin pie in a bottle!

12oz bottle in a stemless glass. Pours deep amber/copper with an off-white head. Aroma of pumpkin pie spices especially ginger and nutmeg, some pale and caramel malts, hints of fruitiness, notes of floral hops, and some dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. A decent beer.

not much aroma - faint toffee malt. nice darker pumpkin/orange pour. taste was more of an Oktoberfest than pumpkin - which is fine. slight earthiness with slight spice at end; better as it warms

12oz bottle pours a slightly hazy amber with a small off-white head. Aroma is cidery and of lots of spices. Taste similar to aroma with some bitterness kind of watery. Not my thing.

Bottle. Clear amber. Cinnamon spice and pumpkin aroma. The taste adds graham cracker. Very thin texture with a light body. Basically a standard pumpkin ale like all the rest, but with the potential is there to make this one bigger and better.

Drank from a pint glass poured from a twelve ounce bottle purchased at Wegmans.Pours a delicious amber color with mild headwith little carbonation but still leaves a tickle on the tounge. A decent pumpkin beer would totally have this again.
