Basically, I really liked this beer. Pour was a nice, deep golden color, decent head with enough retention. Aroma wasnít overwhelming - kind of subtle like the kitchen after the pie baking is done. Taste followed suit - not one dominant flavor, nice sweetness in the brown sugary way, seemed balanced pretty well to me. Flavors of roasted pumpkin at the end, and the sweetness lingered a tad. Lighter mouth feel than some of the other pumpkins weíve tried. Not so thick and heavy on the tongue as some others of this pumpkin ilk. A very enjoyable brew and worth the search IMO. Snagged the last three bottles at the local shop. davey101 (751) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 4, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2012 October 2012 vintage, 500ml into a SA perfect pint.
A - Pours a very clear dark brown/red color. One finger off white head settles into a very thin cap and edging. Quick but noticeable lacing.
S - Typical pie spices of cinnamon, all spice, nutmeg, and ginger. A vegetal quality on the end that really does hint towards actual pumpkin and squash.
T - Pie spices initially. Finish is pumpkin flesh and brown sugar. Very fresh and authentic tasting. Dry finish allows the beer to never seem too sweet or spicy. Mouth feel is crisp and well carbonated.
O - A surprising twist on the pumpkin beer in the fact that its a lager. Very clean and easy drinking with a pleasant and authentic pumpkin/spice flavor. Probably the most approachable and balanced pumpkin beer Iíve tried. damzz (494) - Massachusetts, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Pours clear orange gold with a thick white head. Aroma is pumpkin spice. Taste is a delightful pumpkin spice with the lightness and crispness of a lager. A nice change form pumpkin ales. Leighton (21083) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2013
Bottle in NH. Pours clear amber with a creamy tan head. The nose has lots of dry wholegrain bread, nutmeg, ripe and leathery pumpkin. Light to medium sweet flavor with nice pumpkin character, toasted bread, cinnamon and nutmeg. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet but balanced to finish with pumpkin muffins, lovely cinnamon and nutmeg, toasty bread. A very well made pumpkin beer. Great pumpkin and and spice integration. Delicious. puboflyons (3397) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 6, 2015
From the 25 fl. oz. bottle. Amber-orange pour with a lasting cream colored head. The aroma has a bit of nutmeg, a bit of Allspice, and other pumpkin esters as well as a sweet malt presence. Creamy medium body. Same sweetness and spiciness on the flavor with a mild to moderate bitterness at the end.

One of the better pumpkin beers out there. Really tasty and crisp with nice spice and pumpkin flavor. The lager body is wonderful and nothing is over done. A subtle easy drinking good beer. icehawk (834) - Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, USA - NOV 27, 2013
Nice pumpkin spice aroma with some vegetative and earthy notes. Medium body, perhaps a bit thin, with decent carbonation. Nice pumpkin spice flavors, but not overly sweet. Tasty! JulienHuxley (5792) - Trois-RiviŤres, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 14, 2015
Bottle purchased from the brewery. Clear copper pour with pretty, lacy white head. Aroma is mildly spicy, nice light, well dosed pumpkin pie aroma, light biscuity notes, very pleasant. Taste is smooth, light sweetness, light toasted notes with a well dosed spicy finish. Palate is med-light bodied, dry, with good strong carbonation. Long time since Iíve had such a good pumpkin beer, very nice. Ernesto987 (6050) - Arizona, USA - NOV 9, 2012

Tap at World of Beers at the cross gates mall prior to a movie. Pours orange with nice head and fine lacing. Nose is nice fresh pumpkin squash and hints of spicing. The spices are light of nutmeg and cinnamon and plenty of squash Flavors. Drying with some earthy bitterness. Everything is subdued and very drinkable lager. The fact you can drink this in a mall is awesome.
