Having a pumpkin ale sampler day. This example did not impress. Mouthfeel is nice and creamy but flavor and aroma were subtle and not what I want from this style. Slightly astringent and a strange aftertaste.

Obiviously it has a strong pumpkin and spice aroma. Has a pumpkin/amber color. It definately has a pumpkin and malt flavor to it. It’s a neat, festive beer for one beer, but can’t drink more than one, too much pumpkin for me. My wife seems to enjoy it.

Cinnamon-heavy in both scent and taste. Cloves and nutmeg creep in, more in flavor than aroma. Smooth drinking, medium-low carbonation.

Ugh...this has absolutely no aftertaste, fortunately. It has a light amber color. It tastes of rotten pumpkin, kinda...and is far too fizzy for my liking.

Where's the pumpkin? This beer falls flat on its face in the battle for king of pumpkin beers. Save these for unwanted guests during the fall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pretty dank brewski! Smells and tastes like fresh pumpkin pie. You can taste the cream and spices and everything. I really want some pumpkin pie right now. what I would give for some god damned pie! This beer would chase some nice warm pie perfectly. From the Hay-stack, which is another plus. Hell yeah!

There is definatly a strong pumkin flavor, a little bit of AllSpice/Nutmeg charecter, but I just couldn’t finish the bottle. Maybe I just don’t like pumkin beers.

Pours a dark orange color. With plenty of white head to follow. Sipping on this beer, is sweet yet spicy. Taste like a liquid pumpkin pie. Hints of cinnamon.. One of my favorite sesonals.

Bottle pour. Orange/Amber color, quickly dissipating thick, white head. Aroma of pumpkin, cloves, cinnamon. Flavor is non-existent, mostly cloves. A hint of pumpkin flavor at the finish. The Aroma is the best thing about this ale, but the flavor does not deliver.

A fairly thin beer, but intriguing pumpkin flavor. Also hints of winter time spices. Overall well balanced, with no overpowering flavors. Enjoyable but could be more.
