Pours a golden yellow with a little white head, no lacing. Very little aroma. A little watery but a nice pumpkin aftertaste. An ok beer.

Pour was a nice white head but didn’t last. Aroma was more full of fruits apricot and sour apple. Flavor was cinnimon and sweet pumpkin. Good brew

draft... lightly hazy amber with a minimal head, limited lacing, no retention... light spice in the aroma, some mild pumpkin notes, no real hoppiness to speak of... lively medium to medium thin body, ok spicing, but quite light with it, maltier than hoppy, relatively bland..

Light cooper pour with a quickly fading head and some light lacing on my glass. Smells good of all the spices you are accustomed to in a pumpkin beer. Good flavor, nothing over-powering. Pretty balanced. I’d buy again.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
One of my friends said that this beer is like drinking a slice of pumpkin pie. He was right. Color is medium copper/burnt orange. Head thins out quickly and leaves thin soapy lacing. Aroma of pumpkin pie, nutmeg, cinnamon with traces of yeast. Taste is pumpkin pie, very creamy texture and a thick palate. The custard pie and nutmeg linger on the palate for a while. Definitely one of the best I have had in this category.

Sampled at an ESBLS tasting. A nice pumpkin pie nose that includes nutmeg. The flavor is almost as good with those pie tastes. Pretty good.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz can poured into a Founders snifter. 1st pumpkin beer out of a can, let’s see how it sizes up verses the rest. Aroma has faint hints of pumpkin and spice, but simply not enough to interest me. The flavor however has a nice pumpkin nutmeg presence with a smooth spice finish. More pumpkin in the aroma and this would be dynamite.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
My problem with this beer is the appearance. The flavor is really good. I like the spicy pumpkin finish and would agree that it is one of the more prominent pumkins on the market. Pours VERY thin with little to NO lacing. Aroma of pumpkin spices and lightly earthy mostly spicy cinnamon, pumpkin and nutmeg. The taste is of pumpkin spices (cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg) and some earthy pumpkin with light sweet malt ... a decent little pumpkin ale finishes dry and spicy.
