Bottle. The pour was a cloudy medium orange with a brownish hue and had an average sized (1-2 finger) white fizzy head that was gone in a matter of seconds and had virtually no lacing to speak of. The aroma was light to say the least of a light bread malt and a mild doughy yeast with hints of nutmeg, pumpkin and a little allspice. It tasted extremely lightly sweet with a small presence of nutmeg and cinnamon at first then had a mild touch of pumpkin show up and became a little acetic (vinegary) at the end with the flavor only sticking around for a very short while. Mouthfeel was very light in body and watery in texture with a fizzy carbonation. Overall a Pumpkin Ale that was super light in flavor, even so you could taste the pumpkin and spices. But it did have a mild vinegar presence at the finish which was unusual for this type of beer. I was also surprised to see it come in a twist off bottle.

Shared bottle. Pours a dark brown color, with a thin, tan head. Strong pumpkin spice aromas, with some cloves and vanilla. Sweet and no balance. Light to medium body, with a thick, creamy mouthfeel. Good spice, but nothing special.

This beer has a decent pumpkin flavor. It’s not the best pumpkin you’ll ever have, nor the worst. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours deep amber. Mouthfeel is almost creamy. I love that this is not too heavy on the spices. There are notes of burnt caramel that is great with the pumpkin pie flavors going on.

From old tasting notes. Brassy golden color. Fine bubble white head. Interesting pumpkin malt aroma with a hint of cloves. Flavorful spicy malt flavor with hints of cinnamon and allspice. Yes you can taste the pumpkin. Smooth, mild spicy finish.

chinchill (5310) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 5, 2015
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Porter Bar goblet. Appearance: clear dark brown body with orange-red highlights and a frothy, medium size tan head that reduces to a ring. Aroma: artificial vanilla and holiday spices with a hints of baked bread and baked winter squash. Flavor: Lightly sweet with some roast pumpkin flavor; over spiced and the spice mix i not very appealing. Mouthfeel: Medium-full body with light carbonation; smooth. Overall: not bad but nearing that mark.

Bottle. Dark Amber. Aroma is pumpkin pie and nutmeg. The taste follows with the typical fall spices, mainly clove. Light and drinkable. Very good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Drjohnrock (841) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 21, 2015
Poured from 12 ounce bottle purchased at Whitey’s Wine and Liquor as part of a mix six pack, tasted on October 11, 2013--review from old notes. Cloudy amber/yellow color, pretty strong pumpkin aroma with some spice notes, moderate pumpkin/spice flavor with enough bitterness to keep things from getting off kilter. Not bad at all but seems to have lost something since I first tried it a few years before this try.
