cstuartj (1020) - Washington, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Deep orange color, okay head, good lacing. Nose is pumpkin pie and malt. Taste is something like pumpkin pie or pumpkin soda. I’m not a pumpkin beer fan but this one wasn’t too bad.

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2017 First half poured clear and second half cloudy. Aroma of apples and pumpkin spice. Taste also pretty strong on apples, some pumpkin, and light on spices such as nutmeg and cloves.

I usually only try one pumpkin beer per season because I don't really like them that much. This one was nice though. It's strong enough to handle the spice and pumpkin flavors well. A bit tart and a touch thin for a beer this strong. Spice is slightly potpourri but not in a negative way. Strong but tame is the verdict. Not much of a nose

Clarkdvm (531) - Florida, USA - SEP 23, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2017 22oz bottle. Transparent amber (definitely doesn't look unfiltered). Aroma not as strong as flavor to me. Good but too much cinnamon

Smells exactly like pumpkin pie. Tastes incredibly like pie, crust and all. Super creamy. Best pumpkin beer I've tasted ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bricks (1150) - Delaware, USA - JUL 31, 2017
In terms of aroma.. an all-time great... like a Yankee Candle. The taste is a hodgepodge of fall spices and malt.. slight metallic aftertaste. It’s a good one.

22 ounce bottle. Amber orange color. Small foamy white head. Spicy nose is redolent of cinnamon and nutmeg. Toasted malt flavor has all the spices; cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and allspice. Quite flavorful with notes of caramel, Apple, pumpkin and pie crust.

Mindwarp (293) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 11, 2017
Pours gold with a small white head. Aroma is of pumpkin and spice and smells kind of nice. Sorry. Taste is cinnamon and nutmeg not a lot of pumpkin flavor. Overall this beer smells better than it tastes.

thegreenrooster (4558) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 5, 2016
Pour is a hazy orange with a large white head. Aroma Is a huge cinnamon and nutmeg. Smells like a fresh baked pumpkin pie. Flavor is more of a huge spice. I don’t know how much pumpkin is in this beer but there is a ton of spice. This gets a bit thick after a while but there is such a huge spice the thick cloying is expected.
