Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is medium amber. Aroma is lightly malty (cookie, caramel), lightly hoppy (flowers), with notes of apricot/peach, gum, pumpkin pie. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/oily texture, lively carbonation. Ya know, I gave up on Wynkoop years ago, as they were easily one of the worst breweries in Denver...flaws galore in all their products, especially diacetyl. Then earlier this year on a lark I tried that testicle beer, and was shocked at what a nice stout it was. Although this isn’t as enjoyable as that beer, it is evidence Wynkoop might have finally hired a brewer that knows what he/she’s doing. This has a pleasant fruity, floral, pie-like aroma that is not at all what I expected and quite pleasant. The mouth experience is just a little odd (almost saccharine-like sweetness and a slick, oily mouthfeel), but overall decent enough. While a 3.3 may not seem very high, for Wynkoop this is actually saying volumes compared to the old days...and this is a novelty beer, after all. I should probably revisit some of their more traditional styles.

Positively nothing special. Hazy amber color, little to no aroma, and hints of pumpkin at first taste that quickly fade. Easy to drink, but won't be coming back for more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beaver (1284) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 27, 2013
12 oz can. Pours hazy orange amber with a fizzy off-white head that quickly goes to a thin film that laces the glass some.

The aroma is sweet pumpkin with some spice - cinnamon, all-spice.

The flavor is sweet bready malts and vegetal pumpkin with some fruit notes and light roast. There’s some light spice - cinnamon, clove, nutmeg. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, it’s an OK pumpkin - it’s a bit sweet and vegetal with subdued spicing.
