Tap at Charlottesville location. Hefty pumpkin pie spice aroma - clove, nutmeg, cinnamon. Quite nice. Flavor is weak: light spices, bready malts. Not much to the flavor.

I tried this at the Eugene location as part of a sampler. Great underwhelming pumpkin taste. One of the better Pumpkin Aleís I have ever had.

This was easy to drink, but could have been so much more. There was very little spice, mostly pumpkin, and some irritating smokiness. The malt character was there, but this was not something I could drink more than a pint of.

Could really small the pumpkin on the nose and not oversweets. Orange pumpkin body color with white head. Decent flavor not as much starch as most I ve had before. Smooth berr on palate with out a nasty aftertaste on palte. Good pumkin brew

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a nice amber. Smell is robust and lovely. Big pumpkin spice flavor with cinnamon and nutmeg seeming evident. Taste is very thin, muted and watery, but the pumpkin flavor that shows is still nice. Very pumpkin pie like in the flavor that is there. Drinkable, nice attempt, that would be great with a big more boldness.

A pretty average pumpking beer. A bit synthetic with a bit of spice and caramel at the finish. Light flavor overall with a malty sweet aroma.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at BJs San Jose. Gold with a light orange tint and a thick head that leaves some clingy lace. Pie spices and fleshy pumpkin in the aroma. Start a bit bland and finishes sweet with a thin body. Not much malt flavor and just a little spice in the beginning. Watery texture. Not offensive, but to bland and light for a pumpkin ale. I guess I just like the style thick and malty.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not the worst pumpkin beer Iíve ever had, but still I find them lacking. Perhaps Iím expecting a bit more sweetness to come forward and since it never does, Iím left slightly disappointed. Either way, this wasnít a bad beer at all. Aroma is slightly vegetative, perfumy with enough nutmeg to notice. Appearance is a light amber color, off-white head. Flavor was a bit green, vegetative with some subtle cinammon and nutmeg spices to notice but not overpower. A bit watery, I felt if it were more creamy, with a little more sweetness left in it it could have been better. But, still...not bad.

Big spicy nose. Pours a light amber with a solid white head. Heavy spice flavor, cinnamon, clove, allspice, mild pumpkin flavor, not bad. A little too spicy though.

(On draught at Papago). Pours a clear dark copper color with tan head and active carbonation. Aroma has pumpkin, nutmeg, coriander and buttery pie crust. Taste is sweet malt with more spices. Thin bodied with oily texture. Nice pumpkin beer!
