THOUGHTS: Decent beer, but I don’t know if I would have guessed it was a pumpkin beer. Flavorful and easy to drink, but a little watery in body. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a medium brown with red highlights when held to light and an average, tan head that kept a decent sheet and left fair lacing. The aroma had moderate caramel, molasses, chocolate and roasted malts; light herbal hops; hints of pumpkin pie spices; cola, slight sour pumpkin and vegetal pumpkin. The initial flavor was moderately sweet and slightly bitter; while the finish was heavily sweet, slightly sour and lightly bitter with a short duration. Overall, it was a little watered down. There was molasses, caramel, roasted malts, cola, and a little sour pumpkin. The medium body was watery with soft, yet tingly carbonation and a dry and lightly astringent finish.

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.

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.

Caramel Ruby dark copper appearance low head,slight lace. Vegetale and mild unidentified spices aroma and light brown sugar, kind of like the realness of this pumpkin aroma has a slight fruitiness. Taste is caramel light spice nutmeg/clove are a bit more noticable but altogether not overspiced. Has some slickness texture you get from real pumpkin and the brown sugar with mild sweetness and mild clove seem to meld together well. I like this for a 5%er its got more of a richness to it in its style than an average pumpkin ale, probably from molasis taste. Earthyness stands out also. Pretty decent if you like pumpkin ales with a little richer feel in a milder abv. Kind of hits you like a nice mildly spiced brown ale.

12oz bottle pours with an amber body that has copper hues and supports a white head. The aroma offers up malts as well as roasted malts mixing with molasses, malt sweetened pumpkin and faint sweet red apples. The taste is similar and delivers sweet malts, some roasted maltiness, mild pumpkin and then pumpkin pie spices. Overall this is pretty nice and the pumpkin notes that surface are tasting good.

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.
