2.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
The strong aroma of pumpkin and ginger was really promising on this one, but the flavor really didn’t deliver. With a little more pumkpin flavor and a little less carbonation I think it would have been a "must-buy" every year around Halloween. As it stands though it was like a lot of fruit beers I have tried where the bark was better than the bite. I am going to try to hunt down a Pumpkin Stout!

Poured a medium hazy amber color with a smaller white head. Spices and lighter pumpkin on the nose. Lighter tastes vs. the aromas. Fizzy body. Middle of the road as far as pumpkin ales go.

Thin, slightly sour, this is just a trainwreck of a beer. Pumpkin pie spice is blunt.

crwills brought this one and thanks. Cinammon and nutmeg is pronounced in a lager, orange with a white head. Astringent and fizzy carbonation.

Hmmm, not the worlds best pumpkin beer. Pours an amber color with very little head. I smell some lagerish aromas and some spices. No real pumpkin in the nose. Flavor has some pumpkin pie spice, light malt and some grassiness. Not so good.

3.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Looks nice. Deep, golden, hazy ale.
Smells like fresh-baked pumpkin pie. Smooth, malty, spicy flavor, but too thin for me.
Watery mouthfeel with fizzy carbonation. Short, crisp, clean finish.

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 one’s for you."

Tasted from a 12 ounce bottle purchased in Denver, Colorado. Orange appearance like a Belgian Ale. Citrus-y, weirdly spiced beer. Not a good Pumpkin beer.

Orange/copper colored, with a lot of pumpkin spice and some pumpkin puree in the aroma. The taste was spicy, with some finishing pumpkiny elements. Medium to light palate.
