Bottle courtesy of aniela. Pours tiny hazy golden with a frothy offwhite head that slowly dissipates while leaving some thick lacing on the glass. Smell is tiny malty and spicy with biscuits, pie crust, ginger, cloves, lemon zest, nutmeg and hints of pumpkin gourds and rubber. Taste is tiny sour, tiny bitter, tiny malty and spicy with wheat crackers, biscuits, pie crusts, pumpkin gourds, lemon juice, hay, cloves, ginger, nutmeg, cardamom, sheet metal and hints of rubber, lemon zest and celery. Mouthfeel is tiny round, phenolic astringent and medium bodied. Finish is tiny sour, bitter and spicy with pie crusts, lemon juice, ginger, nutmeg, cardamom, cloves, pumpkin and lemon zest. Not too sweet which is nice but the rather harsh phenols brings it down. jmgreenuk (9552) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAR 22, 2014
Bottle at the "Colin and the Vikings tasting, Goteborg". Poured a hazy light amber with a thin white head. The aroma is big pumpkin yeast. The flavour is light bitter, veggie with a dry pumpkin, grainy palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Don’t like pumpkin so I was never going to like this too much. solros (88) - stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 22, 2014

Pours a cloudy orange with light frothy head. Aroma is sweet, spicy, with notes of pumpkin throughout. Flavor is light to moderately sweet with a bitter herbal finish. Overall a pretty average pumpkin beer but still tasty. Slubgob (333) - West Hartford, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Nice orange, yes even pumpkin hue. Cinnamon, ginger, little earthy funky on the nose. In the mouth surprisingly blah. Spices don’t carry through. Not a lot of pumpkin. A bit of dirt carries through but on the whole rather bland for a pumpkin ale, and sorry of boring for a ale period. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Bottle:   Darker shade of orangish straw, pale haze, thin to moderate frothy white head, spotty lacing.   Subtle malt on the nose, barely any spices.   Does have some sort of real pumpkin or gourd aroma, but its subtle.   Soft maltiness up front, lacks much depth in terms of spices, but its at least clean.   I can see this as an Autumn ale has it has a very soft indistinguishable spice that reminds me of an autumn floral bouquet during thanksgiving.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Snoozer of a finish.   Surprised this is that light for a Great Pumpkin Ale, coming in at only 4.4%.   Pretty boring, unfortunately. reberiii (498) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 23, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2013 Not too much pumpkin, not too much anything. Smooth and refreshing, this pours a clear deep amber with no head retention. Easy to consume, won?t annoy like most pumpkin ales. blipp (9374) - La Mesa, California, USA - NOV 7, 2013
Draft. Pours golden orange with a white head. Pumpkiny sweetness, pumpkin spice, and some lingering malty sweetness. Good stuff.
