snoworsummer (1950) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 4, 2013
Draft. Pours very clear medium copper brown with very thin white head and no lacing. Tastes very sweet, like apple, simple syrup, and pumpkin. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells like apples, sugar, and caramel.

zach8270 (3376) - Henrietta, New York, USA - NOV 1, 2013
(bottle - 12 oz) Clear copper pour with a fizzy white head. Floral and spice in the nose with a very mild underlying hint of apple. Slightly odd flavor at the start, almost like a fermented pumpkin pie but then smooths out to a pumpkin pie, cinnamon and nutmeg middle. Smooth and sweet on the finish. Different but kind of good.

PorterPounder (5370) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 31, 2013
Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - 12 oz bottle. Pours a sparkling medium copper with not much of a head. Aroma has some light floral accents, a touch of ripening fruit. Flavor is mellow but flavorful with some light spicy accents, some light pumpkin, a touch of ripening vegetables. Mouthfeel has a nice roundness to it. Decent.

Blairgus (2566) - California, USA - OCT 28, 2013
28 oct 2013, bottle. Light orange, clear, occasional bubbles. Nose is unusual cider aroma. Hard to say pumpkin but it is different. Thin body and faintly fizzy. Very unusual. Has a burnt cider or bad apple cider flavor. This isn't a good combination. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Livendadream (104) - New Mexico, USA - OCT 10, 2013
Btl pours clear amber color,no head, light bubbles no lacing. Smells like apple jolly rancher candy and subtle pumpkin pie spice. Has taste of caramel,apples and cream soda and a hint of gourd. Kind of has that holiday flavor:cinnamon,brown sugar,allspice. Has a slippery mouthfeel,light body,minimal carbonation with a slight bitter finish. First cider rating. Pretty good flavor, just to sweet for me. Decent cider to drink on a cool fall evening.

Frozer (111) - Illinois, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Drank from the bottle. Tastes like creamy pumpkin pie. Wish it had some pumpkin spice flavor to go with it . hard to drink more than one bottle.

NikkTwist (1539) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Draft at Fado. Clear amber pour with a lasting fizzy ring. Waaaaay too sweet. Pumpkin flavor is too subtle and barely actually tastes like pumpkin. Works better as an Irish Pumpkin - paired with Guinness.

AmBunni (18) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 24, 2013
Quite sweet with very subtle spices. I don't taste much pumpkin, a little on the exhale. Very drinkable with a thin/light mouthfeel. I like this better than the amber and crisp woodchuck but not as much as the fall. Enjoyable but nothing to seek out. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

michaelinwa (583) - Bothell, Washington, USA - SEP 20, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2013 Bottle. Clear, medium brown pour, moderate carbonation. Aroma is light apple, but I have trouble finding any pumpkin there. Flavor is intense, leans a bit too sweet, and has sweet apples out front, with a subtle flavor of real pumpkin and an equal amount of pumpkin pie spices. Decent cider for the season, but it’s just a little too sweet for my palate. Would probably opt for their Fall cider over this.
