From a bottle. Pours hazy copper with a bubbly off white head. Smells like roasted pumpkin, light spice, light alcohol, and nutty malt. Tastes like musky, nutty malt, dry roasted pumpkin, toasted grains, and a light sweetness.

Wittales (761) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Appearance was clear amber with creamy off white 1 finger diminishing head, spotty lacing. Aromas are of pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, banana and caramel malts. Taste are semi-sweet malt upfront then pumpkin and balanced spices. Palate was soft smooth CO2 with light-medium body, then sweet balanced spicy finish. Overall, solid pumpkin brew just touch to sweet.

they did a great job with heavy use of pumpkin and spices to cover up what would be a very boring beer. low on "beer", high on spice. still thin, but if you like pumpkin and allspice, this oneís for you."

Pumpkin flesh, an interesting blend of spices, and capped with a light body that does not compromise flavor. The body isnít pulpy or thick, and errs on the side of caution, but still offers a brisk, airy and pleasant seasonal bang.

You know onetime, this asshole (and I canít even remember who or where) said that pumpkin pie wasnít "real pie". It hurt my feelings. It made me mad. I love pumpkin pie. I donít love this beer. Itís good. Itís balanced but monotone. Got it in a 6 pack sampler and thatís a perfect place for it. Drink one to try it. Write a review and move on.

bkurtz (1063) - MOROCCO - OCT 3, 2014
Pours a clear amber with a small, creamy head. Pumpkin pie aromas: Cinnamon, clove, pumpkin. Taste is a little muddled, not something you would ask for again.

tightslice (1069) - Redwood City, California, USA - SEP 25, 2014
Bottle from Whole Foods in Redwood City, CA. Pours a medium to dark amber. Aroma is squash, dirty water, some cinnamon. Flavor is watery, earthy, clay, squash. Stale pumpkin pie flavoring in a moldy, water-downed 711 slurpee found in a dumpster. Minus all the good stuff.
