Smell is typical pumpkin beer. Color is typical pumpkin beer. Taste is typical at first then gives way to a bitter maltiness that is not typical. Not great but not awful.

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.

12oz bottle. Poured an orange/amber color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of pumpkins and spices. Tastes of the same. More pumpkins in the aromas with more spices in the tastes. 60minuteman (1765) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 5, 2013
Smell is a roasted malt hop complexion with fruit, pumpkin, cinnamon, and other spice. Taste is toasted bread, hop, oak, but bleak. TOSG55 (223) - Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 25, 2014
Bottle, pours copper with medium head. Subtle aroma of fall spices. The flavor is less spice-driven, with some sour off-notes from the yeast and not a whole lot else. Not a great pumpkin beer.

Draft. Clear amber color, small white head. Aroma of cinnamon and light hay. Taste is watery spice. rondphoto (4542) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - DEC 29, 2014
on tap @ Vino Belissimo / Lima OH --- Clear medium amber color with a long-lasting white head, and a full curtain of lace. Taste is malt that adds straight hop bittering on the swallow, moving to a finish that leaves a residue of chalk on the roof of the mouth. Only fair. maxwelldeux (4433) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - SEP 2, 2012
Not too bad. Pours an amber color with a pretty small head. This isn’t overly spiced, which is a great change for a pumpkin beer. Tastes like an Oktoberfest which is underneath. Aurelius (5682) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 19, 2012
"There once was a farmer-agrarian
With a surplus of squashes Hungarian.
He mumbled, "My Dear,
we must brew some beer
that appeals to a dumb vegetarian."
So there, label-writer limerick marketing guy. Watch out Vanilla Ice!
Perfumy, tannic, lightly spicy, somewhat sweaty aroma. Clear, rusty, red-orange-brown beer, standard US longneck, meh label. Nicely bittered at first, tangy, a bit metallic, not sweet, a bit woody. The bittering broke down to a metallic affair. Overall, blind, I would think this is a rye beer. A little sour fruit in the finish, amongst the long, non-descript hop bitterness. No love from Aurelius. Market Square Liquors, Timberlane. jbruner (5603) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - SEP 23, 2012
Pours a clear copper color from the bottle with thin tan head and moderate lacing. Aroma of grainy malt, grassy funkiness, and slight pumpkin. Taste follows, but is very bland, the funky grass is not the good type of funk, the grainy malts don’t blend well, and the pumpkin is so slight that it’s almost not noticeable. Not something I want to seek out again.
