Appearance: Medium copper. Slightly hazy. Thin layer of tiny white bubbles.
Nose: earthy pumpkin, caramel malt, nutmeg, cinnamon and a touch of cloves.
Taste: Earthy pumpkin goodness with a decent level of pie spices. a touch caramel sweetness and a little vanilla.
Body: medium to a little fuller and a silky mouthfeel.
Parting thoughts: A very good pumpkin beer. I like the ones that have good pumpkin to spice balance. This is just about right.

Very high quality pumpkin, the best I've ever had in season. Well done, 4 Noses, hit this one out of the park. I believe the GABF Gold Metal icon on the cover, immediately you get the seasoning you expect with pumpkin, a kind of all spice cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg or whathaveyou. Many beers trying to replicate this 'pumpkin pie at its best' taste, with an organic grounding of dark seasonings. Right on the nose taste that drinks through the entire beer, and at 7.7% Pumpkin, it's perfect quality/ABV. If all 4 Noses were like this classic they'd be tough competition. You expect a 4 Noses to be generic, this is a winner that could easily sell national. Love the cover, too. Hilarious. You quite honestly had me at 'Imperial Pumpkin Ale'. Ha.

Can - lightly cloudy amber - nose heavy with roasted pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla - soft carbonation - medium sweet - heavy in the toasty, earthy pumpkin without being too vegetal - moderately spicy - finish gets a little murky and dull, but leaves a nice warming sensation on the palate - overall pretty good.

Tap at Choice City. Clear orange pour with a minor head. Explosive pumpkin pie spice aroma and taste. Wow. I can see why this won a GABF medal.

Can. Pumpkin spice aroma of nutmeg, cinnamon, clove and allspice with notes of pumpkin and brown sugar. Pours orange-caramel colored with a thin off white head that has some retention and good lacing. Starts with allspice, clove and brown sugar flavors. Finishes smooth and dry with cinnamon, nutmeg and punpkin flavors. Pretty nice pumpkin beer.

12 oz. can. Hazy, bronze color, with no head. Strong cloves, pumpkin flesh, mild earthy hops, toffee, and whole grains. Lightly sweet or maybe even a bit dry, with a mild bitterness. Medium body, sticky, very clingy, and thick. This is a pretty solid, oddly and nicely dry, pumpkin beer.
