HuskerTan (1879) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - FEB 11, 2017
Bottle. A- Sweet potato, nutmeg, cinnamon, subtle vanilla. A- Reddish orange color, hazy liquid, off white head. T- Spice, sweet potato, musty, pond water. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, unbalanced finish. O- Yuck. This tasted like sewer water. Naturally, I paired it with a baked sweet potato loaded with maple, marshmallow, and brown sugar. Even that couldnt help the taste on this one.

Bottle. Deep amber with one finger head. Lots of fall spicing along with vanilla. Not my favorite style, but decent for what it is

sarauckelman (478) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2017
Pale amber with no head. Fruity aroma with hints of allspice. Its a difficult flavor to identify, but distinctive and quite good. A bit overcarbonated. Enjoyable!

Poured into a red plastic tumbler so I cant tell what it looks like. :( Not much head. Aroma is sweet, with some spices. A bit like gingerbread. Lots of fizz.

I guess this is a twist on the pumpkin beer thing, lotsa spice and nothing else. This stuff is like an avalanche of cloves on a mountain of nutmeg. It smells like mincemeat pie, all sweet raisin and mounds of spice. Its surprisingly dry though, sort of oddly watery but still briskly carbonated. It does not have the harsh clove bitterness Id expect from so much spice, which is a positive, I suppose, but overall this is extremely one dimensional. If you like that dimension, give this a try, but this might be worth looking over if you want anything subtle.

muzzlehatch (4911) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 17, 2016
12 ounce bottle from Valli Produce in Rockford, IL, served a few minutes out of the fridge in a pint glass. Slightly murky copper, moderate white head decays quickly leaving a clean glass...overwhelmingly pie-spicy nose - ginger, cinnamon a bit, and especially clove and nutmeg; if theres any malt or hops in this beer you wouldnt know it by the aroma...body is very different, mostly quite dry going all the way through, with very little pie sweetness or really much of anything else, just a bare hint of malt and some bitterness at the end that reminds me more of burnt herbs than hops...theres also an unpleasant sourness to the body, a bit of a spoiled milk character...watery, overly carbonated, this comes off to me as club soda with some spices and soured cream dumped in it. I had some of this a few years ago, back when I wasnt rating, and remembered it being bad but not why; seeing a bottle for .99 I couldnt resist, masochist that I am, but its even worse than I remembered. Simply horrible.

basaywhat (230) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - MAY 8, 2016
12 oz bottle. Clear orange color with thin white head. Smells of malty caramel and vanilla. Sweet on the tongue with cinnamon, caramel, vanilla, and sweet potato pie flavors.

ajnepple (5831) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 15, 2015
12 oz bottle into a pint glass, purchased at Hy Vee Wine & Spirits - Muscatine. Medium orange and light hazy appearance with a white head, eventually fully dissipating. Aroma of sweet potatoes, breaded malt, light pumpkin, caramel, toffee, light fruity esters and hints of herbs and spices. Similar flavor, moderately sweet with light bitterness. Light to medium body with ample carbonation and a lingering finish. Nicely balanced and easy to drink. Not bad overall, slightly better than expected.
