Pumpkin and cinnamon, nose, not strong. Hazy amber thin head. Not strong at all, but the flavor is dominated by pumpkin. Bubble gum is detectable when quaffed. Faint hints of nutmeg in the finish. Nothing objectionable, but rather weak.

Pours a hazy amber color with a quickly disappearing head. Smells and tastes of a pumpkin pie. I liked this one.

A - Reish-brown color with a hint or orange. Little bit less than a finger of head when served that did not last very long. S - Smelled of pumpkin and other related spices, most notable cinnamon, but not very strong. T - Pumpkin taste all the way through, but not too strong. Melds in the middle with common pumpkin spice flavors of cinnamon and nutmeg, but overall a bit bland. Leaves a bit of pumpkin aftertaste which was mostly pumpkin. M - Smooth with light carbonation. Light-medium bodied. A bit too smooth, bordering on watery. D - Fairly easy to drink, but also is not all that much to it. Tasted like a fairly simple beer. Serving type: on-tap

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - DEC 14, 2010
THOUGHTS: Not too bad, but a little watered down. Both pumpkin and spices play an equal part as stars. GLad to see they didn’t over power the pumpkin with spices. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a medium to dark orange with a small to average, off-white head that mostly diminished. The aroma had moderate caramel and pumpkin; and pumpkin pie spices. The initial flavor was sweet and slightly acidic; while the finish was rather sweet, slightly sour and slightly bitter. There was pumpkin, sour malt, pumpkin pie spices and caramel. The light to medium body was slightly syrupy and then dry with fizzy carbonation and a chalky finish.

12oz bottle pours heavy amber with a good head. Aromas of pumpkin pie spice. Taste is malty and a little bitter. Body is a bit thin but good for a pumpkin pie session.

A very nice easy drinking beer. It has a bit of pumpkin in the aroma but not all of the spices you associate with pumpkin pie. Nice and understated.

Full bodied orange with nice white clouds of head. Smells of fresh pumpkin, light biscuit malt, white bread. Tastes of nice fresh pumpkin. Slightly bitter notes in the back of the mouth and almost dry. Quality.
