Draft to snifter. Looks good; a fairly transparent brownish orange with thin off-white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes of pumpkin and related spices with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. A decent example of the style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear, dark amber with a medium white head that rapidly fades. Aroma has pumpkin, nutmeg, spices, and cinnamon. Its on the potent side, and has more of a pumpkin smell than many of these. The taste contains much of the aromatic impressions but in varying degrees. There is a lot of cinnamon and spice in here, less nutmeg, while even fewer pumpkin notes. The minor impressions do enough so that you donít feel that youíre drinking a glass of spice. Medium to light in body, slick in texture, with softer carbonation. Aftertaste is minimal. Overall, this might be one of your better pumpkin beer offerings.

Bottle. 8/13/13. Pours a cloudy amber-brown with a thin white head. Aroma is bread, vanilla, banana, pumpkin, clove. Taste is more bitter than expected; alcohol, pumpkin spice, grass, some spruce-like hops, bitterness, bread, touch of banana, spices. No lacing. Medium carbonation. Oily, slick mouth feel. Flavorful but the bitterness is just a touch too assertive. Overall, pretty good.

This fall seasonal from Tyranena is quite unique. There is a very rich smell of pumpkin and spices while you pour this medium brown beer. The overall taste is hard to describe because Iíve never had a pumkin ale taste like this before but the spices are very evident in its taste. Definetly a beer to get you into the fall mood.

Hands down the best non-imperial pumpkin beer Iíve had. Pours clear red with a light head that doesnt hold well. Oily syrupy texture and mouth feel. Aromas of pumpkin pie and cloves. Finish is long and oily. Superb.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Rockyís Sub Pub in Jeffersonville, IN. poured in a Tyranena pint glass. Pours a dark orange/amber color with a decent white head and good amount of lacing. Aroma and taste is an amazingly nice balance of pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, and spices. Medium body with a creamy texture and low carbonation and a great finish of spices that sticks around awhile. Easily one of the best pumpkin ales out there!
