I struck out with pumpkin beers this year. This one had an initial pumpkin smell when pouring, but then is faint. Poured a darker brown with a nice medium tan head. Made me think it it was going to be a heavier bodied beer. The taste seems off. If someone poured this without telling me I would not know it was a pumpkin beer, This one is just a total miss, Not a fan at all.

Meh...OK beer. Aroma was decent. Molasses, brown sugar and notes of pumpkin pie spice. Pour was a dark brown with deep red amber hues with a thin off white film for a head. Taste was very subdued. The molasses and brown sugar drown out any spices that are there. The finish brings out some nutmeg. Nice carbonation.

Bottle. Poured black with a tan head. Light spice aroma with a hint of the molasses. I like a subtle pumpkin ale, but this is a bit too subtle. Very light spice taste with a dark molasses finish. This fell short for me.

Pours a dark brown/black color with a very small head. Aroma is pumpkin, chocolate malt, and caramel. The taste is biscuits, pumpkin, watery chocolate malt, and a little caramel sweetness. Not bad but overall pretty boring.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 2/3/2014. Pours lightly hazy deep ruby brown color with a 1 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of pumpkin, caramel, brown sugar, toast, biscuit, light chocolate, nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, light ginger, herbal, and toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of malt, spice, and pumpkin notes; with solid strength. Taste of pumpkin, caramel, brown sugar, toast, biscuit, light chocolate, cinnamon, nutmeg, light clove, light ginger, herbal, and toasted earthiness. No bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of pumpkin, caramel, brown sugar, toast, biscuit, light chocolate, nutmeg, herbal, and toasted earthiness on the finish for good bit. Nice balance, complexity, and robustness of pumpkin, malt, and light-moderate spice flavors; with no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a moderately creamy and smooth mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice pumpkin ale. All around good robustness and balance of malt, pumpkin, and spice flavors; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Bottle. Dark amber pour with a little off white head. Smells sweet with pumpkin and spices. Tastes of the same but nothing special ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Helped a neighbor move some furniture and he tossed me one of these. Nothing of note besides that its an average pumpkin beer with moderate spice. And that perhaps there was one more spice than your typical pumpkin. Decent but at this point I am well past the spice pumpkin beers for the year.

A good taste of pumpkin and medium caramel malts. It has a greet smooth flavor with little astringent flavor. Nice drinking beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
