Good sessionable beer. I am surprised the low rating. I think this in one of my favorite season beers. Well balance with the use of hops. Repeat drink on this one. lb4lb (2629) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 19, 2013
Pours dark orangish brown. Smell is light. Very, very faint pumpkin pie spice smell but just enough to be noticeable and also some caramel and bready malt. Taste is toffee, toasty, and a quite hoppy with a lingering bitterness more so than any pumpkin beer i can recall. Not much spice flavor if at all detectable. One of the least spiced pumpkin beers, yet it is still good. Body feels rich and full and creamy with a nice soft, yet prickly carbonation. Overall pretty good and drinkable, but doesn’t smack you over the head with spice if thats what you’re looking for. A good session pumpkin, perhaps on a rainy fall day. SSSteve (4006) - - OCT 6, 2012
bottle. clear amber with a small head. fruity nose with red apple, peach, nutmeg. spices of a pumpkin beer over a pale ale. lots of floral hop notes in the finish. bready character also. medium body. it seems like a pretty good beer underneath without the spices. it’s not a coverup. ads135 (4933) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - OCT 15, 2013
A nice fall seasonal. Not pumpkin or yam or any other harvest fruit, but plenty of spices accent this malty beer. poisoneddwarf (2624) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - NOV 2, 2013
12 oz bottle. Aroma consists of nutmeg and cinnamon, as described, but it’s fairly muted compared to most spiced beers. Pours hazy amber with a one finger beige head with decent retention. Taste has all the spicy character you’d expect, but this is much more bitter than other similar beers. Creamy mouthfeel, medium body. I’m liking the bitterness in this. Different than your average pumpkin spice beer.

Clear red orange color with thin off white lacing. Great fall aroma of cinnamon, clove and nutmeg. The palate has similar spices to those found in a pumpkin beer without a lot of the pumpkin coming forward. More of a pie crust note. Great fall beer especially for the price. bhensonb (15627) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 10, 2012
Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours clear copper with a slight foamy off-white head. Aroma is something from my childhood. Can’t come up with a name for it. Med body. Flavor is a sharp spice which drains away to reveal something like pie spice. Finishes fairly dry, and there is that strong spice. Actually I think I prefer this new approach to the standard pie spice. It’s a pretty tasty brew. Smurf2055 (1400) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Pours light ruby with a finger white head.
Smell is clove allspice and a bit of cinnamon
Taste creamy spicy sweet, a lot like a pumpkin beer without the pumpkin
