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.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear copper color with a meager thin head. The aroma is faint, Iím not getting much from it at all. Sorta of an odd potpourri smell. Any pumpkin spice is virtually absent. The flavor leaves a lot to be desired. Itís astringent, overly sweet, nearly sour. Over carbonation doesnít help the flavor, but rather feels intrusive and needs to be turned down a notch. Other flavoring includes pale malts, light toastiness, a hint of cinnamon, pumpkin not too strong. Decent amount of hop bittering at the end. I hate being overly negative about a beer, but there really isnít much to hang your hat onto.

1st pumpkin beer of the season, even though it doesnít feel like Fall yet. Itís still 100 degrees outside. But this one is pretty damn good. The aroma is pretty pungent with a swift punch of pumpkin, spice, and a little bit of cinnamon in there on the back end. The flavor isnít too sweet or overpowering, so I can myself drinking more then one of these. A session pumpkin beer of sorts.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear copper and amber sports a fluffy head and some lace after a few teasing swirls of his clear depths. While leaving trails of lace along my glass, I also release a cacophony of Fall spices and pumpkin ale delights: allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla extract, pulped pumpkin meat, pie crust, and pumpkin pie. Iíve smelled great beers before and then been disappointed by the actual brew itself, so the biggest test is yet to come. Quaff number one is almost as replete in Fall and pumpkin splendor as his nose. Spices and pumpkin meat melt together while toasted pie crust fills with his meaty pumpkin bounty and rich spices. Allspice, cinnamon, and nutmeg finish with a kiss of sweet maple and molasses. There is a tickle of ginger lingering in the back of my throat and breath while my lips smack most satisfactorily. Well balanced and rich with Pumpkin Ale flavors, his medium body makes for an easy quaffing session proven irrefutably by my now empty glass. Thatís ok though, I have 5 more bottles in the fridge.

Pours amber/orange with a small white head. Faint aroma of pumpkin, nutmeg and cinnamon. Flavor was light pumpkin, a touch of cinnamon and some nutmeg with a thin and watery plain finish.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours to a hazy dark amber body with a white head and some nice airy lacing. The aroma has some nutmeg, mace, and a twangy sour malt component. The flavor is earthy and pumpkin laden malts with some nutmeg and cinnamon. Twangy. I could not find the printed on bottle date like they say is there. Dusty and oily texture.
