12 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a hazy amber with an off white head of foam that diminishes to just a ring around the edge of the glass. Aroma is slice forward. It actually reminds me of root beer with ginger and aftershave. The taste actually has a good bit of pumpkin pie character. That spice is a bit aggressive in the aroma and it puts me off a bit, but once I get a taste, its better. Light to medium carbonation. jmcgavin12 (492) - Madison, USA - DEC 16, 2013
Pours a hazy orange with light notes of spice, pumpkin, and cinnamon. Flavor is light to moderately sweet with a light body and slightly crisp finish. Decent pumpkin but not the best that I have had TBone (17523) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 7, 2013

Clear amber color, small white head. Pumpkin(!) aroma. Light-bodied. Pumpkin, some spices, short sweetish finish.
Aroma is spices/cinnamon, lemons and sugar. The flavor is sugar sweetness, spices, fruit and a mildly sour finish. snoworsummer (5693) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 2, 2013
Draft. Pours almost clear dull copper brown with a thin white head and some lacing. Tastes slightly sour, malty, like fermenting apples and cherries. Low/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like cherries, bananas, malt.

Draught: This one pours an orangish-gold color. It has a bit of a white head on it. Not much lacing. The aroma is OK. Some pumpkin spices, hint of malt. Not much else. The taste is very similar. Some pumpkin spices, a bit of malts. Rates a "Meh" at best. cheap (5854) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 18, 2013
probably the best of the three punkin beers toniahgt. Pour is a little darker than yellow. Smells like plain old beer from a can. Decent co2. Not spice forward and I apprecate that. Interesting and mild on the finish. alobar (3778) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Pours a clear amber orange color with no head. Aroma of nutmeg, cinnamon, and pumpkin. Mild pumpkin pie spice flavor with pumpkin sweetness. Not overly done like so many in this style. Ed5388 (3477) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - NOV 14, 2013
Draught sample from Manahawkin Spirits. Pours a cloudy burnt orange color with an average frothy off white head. Aroma was sort of vinous, malty, with a fair amount of pumpkin pie spice. Taste of bitter pumpkin, vinegar, and pumpkin pie spices. Not a fan! jcos (1851) - Maryland, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Location/Date:Bottle on November 10th, 2013.
Appearance: Pours a semi clear brown with hints of orange.
Aroma: Aroma of pumpkin pie spices..nutmeg, pumpkin, cinnamon.
Taste: Light pumpkin spices from the nose, hints of biscuit style malt.
Palate:Light medium body, quick finish.
Summary: This hits on the pumpkin beer idea, but it’s kind of one note and lacking in depth of flavor.
