5.4% alc and 10 bucks sixer cans. One of the coolest looking beer cans ever. Pours a faded orange, cloudy, almost no head. This is the first beer ever that tastes flat even though I can see the bubbles. Solid Notes of metal and sockwater. Aroma of an alley in Chicago after a rainstorm. Mild hint of spoonfull of pumkin pie stirred in to your weakest value light beer. Disturbingly disappointing for anyone who likes pumkin beer or even beer period.

12 oz can into a pint glass. Pours a hazy burnt orange color with a thin cap of dirty white foam. Smell is of pumpkin flesh and the typical spices of cinnamon, nutmeg and all spice. Taste is of a bland brown ale with a touch of caramel malt and light nutmeg. Incredibly bland and watery. I understand this beer is not fresh, but its in a can and shouldnít be this faded. Under carbed. This is just so underwhelming and boring.

Pours a cloudy copper orange color with a fluffy white head. From the side it almost looks like a slice of pumpkin pie! Not too strong of a scent but pumpkin and spices are evident. Has a decent pumpkin and spice flavor to it. My one complaint is the texture, itís a little too watery in comparison to other top selling pumpkin beers. Because of itís lighter texture it does make for very quick and easy drinking. Enjoyable for any fall activity outdoors!

5000 (6184) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 10, 2012
Can:   Amberish, not bright but dirty, fairly hazy, thin sudsy off-white head, little lacing.   Spicy nose, cinnamon and nutmeg, but also has a spiced apple aspect to it as well.   Very unique.   Similar tongue, starts out with cinnamon and nutmeg but then also develops this spicy apple aspect.   Reminds me of a very spicy apple pie.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   This one has more in common with a spicy apple pie than it does a pumpkin pie, making for an interesting beer.   I prefer pumpkin, but I would take apple from time to time.

12 oz. can poured into a cervoise glass. Pours a cloudy light amber with orange hues capped with a white, pillowy three finger head. Abundant, splotchy lacing along the side of the glass. Nutmeg, pumpkin and spice, and light toffee and caramel on the nose. Opens with nutmeg and cinnamon, joined by pumpkin, lightly sweet caramel malt and finishes smooth with more spice and lightly sweet toffee notes. Lighter side of medium bodied, moderate level of gentle carbonation. Smooth, slightly creamy mouthfeel. Very pleasant. One of the better pumpkin beers Iíve had recently and definitely one of the better offerings Iíve had from this brewery.

Does taste like pumpkin. Perhaps too much so actually. Even though this is a pumpkin beer, it has so much upfront pumpkin taste along with some spices that itís a bit sharp at first. Itís good, but could be a bit smoother with maybe some more hops or malt characteristics to balance things out.

Treebs (872) - , Illinois, USA - OCT 20, 2012
12 oz. can served in a Tighthead chalice. A: Pours a solid amber color with a thin white head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thin film and ring. S: Big spice upfront. Cinnamon and allspice. Pie crust in the background. T: Cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin pie crust. The finish is is slightly watery and sweet. Very mild green hops are in the background as well. M: Medium to thin bodied with a medium carbonation level. O: This was solid all around. Nothing really stood out at all, but all the pumpkin ale flavors were there. Serving type: can Reviewed on: 09-16-2012

hombrepalo (1800) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 7, 2012
On tap at CBF. This beer has a beautiful orangey color. It has a very full robust flavor with spiced pumpkin notes. It reminds my of pumpkin pie but with a slightly alcoholic kick

12oz can from Binnyís Lakeview. 5.4%ABV. Pours a cloudy, orange-amber colored body with a finger-width, creamy and frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma has a good amount of pumpkin pie spices with a thinner caramel sweetness. Light pumpkin notes while the clove and ginger stick out the most. Flavor is similar. Thinner caramel sweetness with a good amount of pumpkin pie spices and a light pumpkin note. Finishes clean and dry with some spicing and a light malt sweetness before leaving a fairly lengthy aftertaste with the cinnamon sticking out. Medium-thin body and a light carbonation. Overall, not a bad pumpkin ale, but nothing special. Well balanced and a bit thin with a good amount of spices. Okay.
