Not a game changer by any means, but still an excellent pumpkin beer treat. Warm pumpkin notes without any major distractions from spices, as so many pumpkin beers suffer from. Highly drinkable, and very enjoyable.

Draft at hops and pie. Pours orange with an inch of white foam. Doesn’t leave a lot of lacing in the glass. Lots of pumpkin on the nose. Fsirly sweet on the tongue. Flavorful. Finishes clean. Better than expected.

Can: pour is clear golden amber with a modest off white head in this glass. It retains poorly in this glass. The nose is clearly the highlight here. Pumpkin, yam, spices of nutmeg.and cinnamon, and caramel sweetness. The flavor profile shares these features but the brew is a little thin, and it fades near the finish, presenting sweet breads, mineral water, and light hop bitterness

16 ounce can thanks to Nathan. Pumpkin and caramel. Evenly spiced. Light for ABV. About what to expect from the style when done well.

16oz Can. The pour was a clear reddish orange with a head that was on the light side of average (1-2 finger), with an off white fizzy head that diminished totally after a few minutes and had poor lacing.
The aroma was of a light bread malt and a doughy yeast with notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin and clove.
The taste was a light malty sweet with a touch of pumpkin and nutmeg early on, becoming lightly bitter with a hint of cinnamon and a slightly spicy note of clove at the finish. The flavor lasted an average time after the swallow, being mostly of a light sweet spiciness that faded away rather slowly.
Mouthfeel was light in body with a watery texture and a mild carbonation.
Overall this was a decent tasting Pumpkin Ale and did possess a good drinkability, but as this style goes it was nothing overly special...

On tap at Freshcraft, heard this won a GABF medal which surprised me. Orange color, scant head. Aroma is faint but I can detect nutmeg, cinnamon, holiday spices you would expect in a pumpkin ale. The taste was really odd, maybe it was the yeast but I couldn’t figure it out. Definitely has more spices and a pumpkin aspect. Overall not bad but not something I would revisit even if it was Thanksgiving.

Can poured an amber orange hue w/ a small quickly & fully diminishing head. Mild aroma of malts, cinnamon, and brown sugar. Flavor is light sweet initially with a moderate acetic finish. Taste is malt, spices, and vodka, with a light pumpkin note. Medium bodied, creamy texture, lively carbonation and a light alcoholic feel.

A nice ruby colored Pumpkin with a head that disappears quick. Scent is mild cinnamon, coriander, and nutmeg on top of pumpkin pie, not too sweet. I like that the first sip reminds you that the pumpkin is a squash, very realistic. The 7.7% alcohol is invisible right up until you breathe out. I personally think this is one of the best pumpkin beers there is, and I’m kind of a fan of the variety. Second best after the Venetucci?
