Iím normally not a cider drinker nor a pumpkin eater but this ok. It doesnít taste like pumpkin pie or other halloweeny beers which I what I was expecting. So it tastes a little weird but it isnít a bad hard cider.

Basically the same base as all of their ciders but this time with pumpkin and pie spice flavorings. Basically nutmeg cider. Why does everyone say pumpkin when itís actually nutmeg? Anyway, this one pours with an orange tinge. Aroma of sweet apples and nutmeg. Flavor of sweet apples and nutmeg. Blech.

Gold pour, white head. Simple flavors of pumpkin pie spice and apples. Pretty sweet, lightly artificial, but drinkable.

I have had this a couple of times. Nice apple taste and complementing pumpkin without being too over the top.

BMMillsy (1254) - Florida, USA - FEB 14, 2014
Grabbed one of these for the holidays a while back. I guess we are allowed to rate these now. Pours a golden orange color with bubbles quickly floating to the top. Aroma of rotten pumpkins, a little spice, apples, vomit, sweet sugar. Flavor follows that aroma closely with rotten pumpkin and comit flavors behind sweet apple cider. Medium carbonation and heavier bodied for a cider. Overall I thought this was pretty awful.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - FEB 13, 2014
12 ounce bottle from Wegmanís Leesburg. Pours a clear copper color with a thin fizzy tan head. Pumpkin and tart apple aroma with a bit of earth. The taste is tart apples and a mild bit of pumpkin. Thin bodied.

Chipalsa (1307) - Florida, USA - FEB 9, 2014
I guess this one is finally rateable? This was overall a pretty decent cider, but I didnít get a balance of sweetness or spice to really make me love it. Pumpkin was definitely present, but the crisp bite was always on top - which isnít really good or bad. Maybe pumpkin just wasnít represented enough here.

Bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a golden orange/amber color with a very thin off-white head that doesnít last. Smells of apples, pumpkin, spices. Tastes of apples, light pumpkin. Light body with a semi-dry finish. Lingering pumpkin after the finish.
