4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a slightly hazy dark copper color with a nice white head. Aromas of malt and fresh pumpkin pie, (cinnamon, vanilla, ginger and very light clove) as well as a yeasty aroma like fresh baked bread. The pumpkin pie spices do not overpower the slightly sweet pumpkin flavor allowing the beers flavor to come through. A well balanced malty finish makes it an excellent 4% session beer. Pairs well with spicy foods.

Bottle from BevMo. Pours hazy amber with a 3 finger foamy off-white head. Pie spice aroma. Medium body; frothy carbonation. Lot’s of sharpish flavors. Cinnamon, ginger, clove, nutmeg, and maybe others. The flavor is mostly spice - and it’s quite acceptable. Finish? Spice!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pours orange with an off-white head. I’m gonna have to agree with everyone and say that this is straight pumpkin pie in a bottle, crust and all. Flavor shows the same with pumpkin, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, etc. My only complaint is that it feels slightly thin. Other than that, pretty damn tasty.

Whoh nelly, now this is pumpkin pie all the way. Smells like pie, looks like pie and tastes all spicy and pumpkiny like pie. Light in body with a crispness. Pie upfront, malt in the back seat. I think the acid is too high.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(12oz bottle). Pours dark amber with off-white head. Hazy with some nice carbonation action going on. Aroma of pumpkin pie spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, maybe some clove and vanilla). I think I even smell the crust! Taste is sweet, but not overly and slightly bitter, but they are subtle. Light-Medium bodied with an oily/sticky texture. Not overly carbonated and long finish. Yeah, I think they pretty much nailed it. Tastes like a pumpkin pie in a bottle.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a lightly hazed caramel color with a fluffy off white head. Aroma is pumpkin pulp, spices, malt and vanilla. Flavor is pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and other holiday spices. Oily and slick on the tongue and hints of vanilla in the finish. They got the liquid pumpkin pie profile down pretty good, as most pumpkin beers seem to be overly spicy and lacking in the pumpkin department. Nice brew.

Bottle pours out a amber topped with a small off white head. Aroma is nice light pumpkin notes along with the must have pie spices. Taste the first thing that pops out to me is the nutmeg. A little sweetness but pretty thin on the end. But hey it is still a pretty good beer.

This one of the best pumpkin beers I have had. I will let you know that pumpkin beers are one of my favorite styles. The flavor was solid. Not too sweet, not too spicy. Had a great clean and pumpkin finish that I think I have had in only one other beer like this. This years batch "2008" was amamzing.... This was off the draft at the brewery.
