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.

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!

12oz bottle shared. Pours orangish color to reddish brown with yellowish head. Decent lacing on the glass. The aroma is spice as in cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, clove and pumpkin. The flavor was much better than anticipated. The spices are evenly balanced and there is a good flavor of pure pumpkin in this.

Had this at the 2012 Twin Cities Beer Festival. Nice pumpkin, nutmeg and spice scents. Taste is similar to the scent and not over powering, want more of this one.

Bottle c/o Chaney. Thanks Brandon!
A: Ahh, tis autumn. This ale is a sunset amber hue. The one inch of head recedes very quickly, leaving virtually no lacing whatsoever.
S: Cinnamon, nutmeg, raisin bread, sweet malt
T: An ok tasting brew, with autumn spices very evident throughout. There is not a sturdy enough malt backbone to support this heavily spiced beer. I do appreciate that the cinnamon, nutmeg, etc. flavors taste authentic, as I really donít care for beers that take the "natural flavors" route.
M: Relatively thin bodied with a lower than average carbonation level.
D: An OK beer, but not something I would buy.
