From bottle. Aroma has little bit of spice, but not overpowering. Color is a hazy amber/orange with a slight tan head. A little bitter with subtle hint of spice. The body is a bit oily and medium bodied. A little bitter finish. Overall, I would have liked more pumpkin and spice and a little less pronounced bitterness.

4.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Aroma is a smooth pumpkin with background elements of Autumn spices. Color is a very nice combination of orange and brown, very uniform and warming. Initial bite leads you to believe that the beer will be bitter, but it quickly subsides and gives way to comfortable notes of baked pumpkin, vanilla, and cinnamon. Finishes with a slight nuttiness. Very palatable & well-rounded. No head and minimal carbonation. Extremely enjoyable to the last drop.

The aroma is full of spices and pumpkin, however the taste leaves a little to be desired. It is very bitter, and not as flavorful as I was hoping.

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2012 Great Pumppkin ale (withouut the íWill Stevensí on label). The aroma was deep with spice and a hint of pumpkin. The taste bordered on too much spice, but was just short of overboard. I liked the sensation on the palate. Sensed ginger and clove. Overall, A seasonal winner. Great for the cool fall evening.
