Amber pour. Spices needed in the nose are barely noticeable. The flavors are very vegetable like. It lacks the sweetness and spices needed to make this enjoyable. This one didn’t make it.

The aroma was of bread an yes pumpkin. The appearance was a cloudy orange with a medium cream head. The taste was a bit flat and a bit of bread and pumpkin. The beer is easy to drink but overall was a bit on the week side.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle, best by 2/9/13. Pours clear ruby-amber with a medium creamy off white head that goes to a thin film that leaves some lacing.
The aroma is mellow pumpkin and spices.
The flavor is vegetal malts with nice spicing - cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice. There’s a bit of a metallic finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with slightly sharp carbonation.
Overall, a decent pumpkin beer. It’s a bit mellow, but the spicing is well done.

Poured a brown-amber color. Aroma of pumpkin, spices, nutmeg. Taste is of same, but a little watered down. Bit as full bodied as other pumpkin ales I've tried.

12 oz. bottle from SoHo Organic Market in Elizabeth City, NC. Dark orange pour with a thin off-white head. Aroma of pumpkin is very strong compared to other pumpkin beers I have tried. Also contains some pumpkin pie spices. Decent pupkin taste that really picks up a lot of the roastiness but causes there to be very little finish. A decent pumpkin beer.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours orangish brown, very thin tan lacing. Mild pumpkin aroma, cinnamon, nutmeg and spices. Mild sweet taste. Medium-light body, thin texture, finish is watered-down pumpkin and spices. Not enough malt, too light. Not a big fan.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a golden orange color. Two tiered aroma. First I get a hit of pie spice and then a pumpkin flesh smell. Then I take a sip and what I get mostly is a metallic tinge with pumpkin to the side. The spice finishes things up but too late to save it.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not much pumpkin on the nose, heavy nutmeg scent. Poured a deep copper color with a medium beige head that quickly shrank, great lacing! Tastes a bit like canned pumpkin with a hint of nutmeg. Quickly fading taste, overall not the best pumpkin beer.
