2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours clear amber with medium lasting head. Aromas of pumpkin spices with nutmeg pronounced. Nutmeg and spice upfront with some bitter hops on the finish. Mouthfeel is light and clean. A decent pumpkin ale, but lacking character.
This pumpkin ale poured a slightly cloudy, Amber colour with a quick living, off white, foaming head. Scents include pumpkin, allspice and minimal malt. First swig was pretty good with solid flavours of pumpkin and spice. Finish goes a little bitter with hop flavour lingering on the palate.

APPEARANCE- medium dark amber color. light head but great lacing.
NOSE- very light spiced smell. I think this is a great level of spice smell for a pumpkin.
FLAVOR- malt character comes through well. I don’t taste much in the way of pumpkin flavors.
NOTES- I like this beer a lot, although if it wasn’t labeled pumpkin, I wouldn’t have guessed it matthewmarkelon (9) - - OCT 27, 2016 does not count

Pours an amber from a bottle, aroma of cinnamon and nutmeg, flavor is similar, dry, a little cloyingly spicy. Okay beer. fsbw21086 (481) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 26, 2016
dessert beer. sour tartness with nutmeg honey oats and pumpkin pie. true sipper I could appreciate for the flavor but couldnt finish more than half of one. I dont know why some here say too watery and not too sweet. I got the opposite?

Average light brown appearance, fairly decent head. Autumn spices on the aroma.. with nice balance. Taste is very good, not much on the spice...like a very drinkable session with some character. I like it. tillmac62 (740) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - JAN 5, 2016
Clear amber pour with a slightly garnet cast. Normal head volume, lacing and retention.
Light nose of pumpkin and spice. Lighter than typical in intensity.
Light body slightly smoother than water. Below normal carbonation level with a hint of effervescence in the middle and a somewhat stronger finish.
The flavor profile is rather good. It is flavorful, not very complex and well balanced. It begins with a blend of spices that never really separate. The middle shows a bit of pumpkin and no hop flavor. As the finish fades, pumpkin makes its strongest showing and a bit of hop bitterness surfaces. corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 12, 2015
Draft at The Pour House in Westmont, NJ.
Pours a very dark ruby red/copper color with dark orange edges and a half finger off-white head that immediately dissapears. No lacing.
Sweet pumpkin pie aroma with zesty autumnal spices and vanilla. Pumpkin purée along with cinnamon, brown sugar, clove and nutmeg. There’s a subtle vegetal quality but it smells more dessert like than anything.
Medium bodies with a strong zesty spicy presence up front that lingers over the sweet pumpkin notes into a dry finish. Slightly more vegetal than expected but still sweet with prominent autumnal spice. Not as dessert like with lots of clove, pepper and allspice followed by pumpkin purée, nutmeg and bready malt. ABV is well masked with no alcoholic heat making it decently drinkable. Could be a touch sweeter but it’s not a bad interpretation of the style. samsmith33 (772) - - NOV 2, 2015
8th of 12 in round 1 of 2015 Pumpkin beer tasting. Very watery. 11/12 from all tasters. Joemama24 (4) - Massachusetts, USA - OCT 24, 2015 does not count
Can’t find Wachusett Pumkan so grabbed this. Not bad. Not overwhelming pumpkin. Crisp and tastes light. Will try other Cisco brew.
