Aroma of pumpkin spice and bread. Appears a pale gold with no foam. Very crisp and distinct pumpkin spice flavor overtones. Some caramel, bread, oats and fresh hops are noticeable on the palate. Overall, this is a pleasantly refreshing pumpkin ale. Complexity is fair and body is at a medium. Id give this a B rating.

Bottle from South Bay Drugs: Created a decent layer of foamed head while the liquid was a glowing golden yellow. Aroma is heavily laced with cinnamon, nutmeg and pumpkin pie like scents which are all signs that this is a good sign that this is a worthy pumpkin ale. The flavor is heavy and rich with authentic pumpkin pie like flavors and is quite possibly the best pumpkin beer I have ever tasted. Seriously, this pumpkin ale makes all the rest look like amateurs compared to this. This nails it right on the head and taste like a liquid pumpkin pie. This is one of the few beers I will be offering my parents to taste since they might enjoy this just like I did.

Draft. Clear orange pour, thin white head, Pumpkin, light sweetness, pie spices, allspice, light cinnamon, and caramel malt. Fairly dry for the pumpkin style, and also pretty light in the body. Ok.

Bottle:   Orangish straw, slight ruby hue, moderate white frothy head, spotty lacing.   More of a citrusy nose than anything.   Spices are subtle, at least secondary to the citrus peel.   Faint cinnamon on the tongue, moreso citrusy.   Seems to be about half and half as this thing finishes, half spiciness and half citrusy.   Very clean on the exit.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Decent little beer, but not as spicy as I would have liked.   The citrus adds an interesting touch.   Big thanks to Richard for getting me a couple of these.

22oz bottle from a recent trade... Pours a medium orange brown, somewhat hazy, and topped with a medium frothy white head... Aroma of a light pumpkin pulp base alongside a small degree of pale malt... Flavors are light with more of a pale malt essence with the pumpkin taking a secondary roleto the aforementioned. Body is lighter than expected with a lively mouthfeel attributed to by the active carbonation. Not the best pumpkin beer.

Appearance: Pours a bright amber orange with a retaining white head.

Aroma: Bready malt, pumpkin meat and potpourri.

Taste: Pumpkin pie spice, bready malt, very dry.

Mouthfeel: Prickly fizz. Medium bodied.

Overall: A dry, simple, session-able pumpkin ale, if there is such a thing.

fresh bottle courtesy of nicks6217, thanks man! drinks well, only moderate pumpkin flavor, seems like a belgian style ipa with pumpkin added. has a good amount of hops, and then has a slight amount of esters and rebounding malt sweetness in the finish. good stuff, not the best pumpkin brew, but stand alone i think its a good beer with a friendly addition of pumpkin.

Pours a light orange. Aroma is a mix of sweet and spice. Promising start that fades because the flavor is primarily salt with a quick hit of wheat. Allspice lingers at the end but only faintly.
