3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a rust color, with a slight tinge of ruby red. Thin off-white head that dissolves quickly and leaves a fair amount of lacing. Aroma is of pumpkin pie spices first and foremost, especially nutmeg, making for a sweet beer. Cinnamon and allspice are also detectable, with some malty breadiness just barely noticeable in the background. Taste is in line with the aroma--sweet and spicy, yielding to some toasty maltiness at the finish. Some clove is also noticeable, producing a numbing effect. Mouthfeel is watery, with lively carbonation--in line with a beer of this style. In sum, a fine beer that will probably win over pumpkin beer lovers more than Marzen purists. But, Terrapin proves that this fusion is not only possible, but worthwhile.

older bottle-aroma is cinnamon, a little clove and nutmeg, pumpkin juice, and nice dark bready bock background-balanced as if it was baked together--flavor is full bodied bock with cinnamon, smoother spices, and vegetal background - if you think you’ll like a good bock with smooth, mild, toasty spices, this is it...

Orange pour from bottle at home. Very nice aroma - pumpkin, cinnamon and spices. I think held this too long. Tastes a little off after 4-5 months - still can tell it is a decent brew

Pours clear orange-amber with a 2-finger bone-colored head. Aroma of pumpkin pie, specifically pumpkin and nutmeg, maybe allspice too. Medium body with a mild finish. Flavor matches the aroma, with notes of pumpkin and the above-noted spices.

On tap at Edley’s in Nashville. Pale orange color with minimal head. Decent pumpkin aroma on top of a rather basic beer. I’m kinda surprised by the high ratings for this one. It’s good and drinkable, but nothing stand out or special.

Good tasting beer. Faint pumpkin pie aroma. Nice clove / ginger finish. Too bad this is seasonal. I'd drink it more often.

12 oz bottle from Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh. One of the better Pumpkin beers I’ve had in the last few years.

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.
