Bottle thanks to brigadier. Pours with a clear golden body and a minimal white head. Aroma of wheat, nutmeg, caramel and spice. Taste is pumpkin, vegital, watery and nutty. Light bubbles. Not on par with some other pumpkin beers.

Tap at Happy Gnome. Pours amber color with a short lived head. Aroma of pumpkin and spice. The flavor is much the same. As a pairing with the cheese plate, it was sublime! Yes, have this and St. Peter Blue Cheese and go to heaven.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap. pour is orange with small white head. Lots of pumpkin and holiday spice in the aroma of this one. Malt also present but certainly takes a back seat. Flavor is pumpkin pie all over the place. Very strong spice, lots of sweet pumpkin and light malt background. This is definitely one for the pumpkin lovers.

OK so this was a great bier. Super tastey, spicey and fruity all the way through. A orangeish mahogany colour with a nose full of spice. Pumpkin and cloves on the palate with generous apple pie and other spices all the way through. Super happy tyranena produced such a gem for this fall!

12oz bottle... how did I not already rate this? Pours a clearer glowing orange color with a sudsy fizzy white head. Aroma is malty with light spicing and a touch of pumpkin. Flavor is much the same, a little more corse in the malt, earthy, nothing too special here.

12oz bottle from 17thfloor. thanks gerritt.... pours slightly more hazy than the previous southampton pumpkin ale with a more dense very light beige head.... nose comprised up of pumpkin and lightly spiced... flavor has much less pumpkin than anticipated. earthy and grassy with light spiced notes and a subtle pumpkin flavor. sweet through the middle and finish. finishes on a slightly bitter note.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Pours a slight amber with a small, fizzy white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is of malt, spice, pumpkin, cinnamon, dirt, and some fruit. Taste starts off with a large amount of sweet fruit, and spice. After a few seconds, a decent amount of pumpkin comes through. Has a backbone of slightly toasted malt. Has a fair amount of sugar too it, but it doesn’t detract. Lingering taste of spice, pumpkin, and some apple. Mouthfeel is light, and very heavily carbonated. Finish is all pumpkin. Easy to drink, tasty, but too carbonated. Aside from that, it’s a winner.
