Smells and tastes like pumpkins and spce with a watery body and mouth feel. Not bad but I dont know how anyone could drink more than one of these.

Pours a hazy light orange color with slight amount of foamy white head. Aroma is cinnamon apple and cream - like a cinnamon home flavor yankee candle (according to my wife). Flavor is very pumpkiny but does not have the heavier maltiness and mouthfeel that a pumpkin ale would have. Strong cinnamon presence. Overall, so so. Aroma better than taste.

Pours a hazy orange color with a head that goes away as quickly as the beer is poured. Pleasant cinnamon and pumpkin spice aroma. The flavor is interesting but I like it. It is a crisp mix of spices with a touch of grainy malt, a dab of bitterness, than a lingering sweet pumpkin spice. Thinner body than most of these Pumpkin beers, but it’s a lager. It drinks like a lager and finishes crisp like a lager. Interesting. Is there ginger in here?

Bad combination of flavors. It tastes like they simply dumped cans of pumpkin pie mix into the vat. Check out the solids on the bottom. Not one of their best.

From a bottle--poured a copper-orange clear body with a wispy whitish-head. Nose of typical pumpkin pie spices. Big on the flavoring but still not bad. Very carbonated, biting mouth feel. Finished dry and bready. Okay beer.

A slightly vigorous pour into my 25cl tulip glass produces a fat, three-finger thick, pale tan colored head that sits atop a brilliantly clear, reddish, copper colored beer. The beer is obviously spiced with the typical pumpkin pie spices as the aroma even as I pour it is quite redolent of cinnamon, nutmeg and perhaps a touch of ginger. A deeper sampling of the aroma yields nothing more than these spices and perhaps a touch of dusty malt.

Fairly dry, with perhaps a hint of sweetness that just peeks through a tart spice character. Spice flavors of nutmeg & cinnamon dominate, but there is perhaps a touch of character that might be attributed to pumpkin, but only just barely. There is a ginger note noticeable in the finish as well as a slightly astringent spice bitterness. Crystal malt contributed caramelized sugar flavors and a medium / light malt fullness help convey the pumpkin pie analogy a bit further.

This is certainly an enjoyable version of a Pumpkin beer, and it does have actually have some pumpkin flavor to it, despite the slightly heavy handed spicing. This is a touch richer, and a bit more like desert that say something like Buffalo Bill’s Pumpkin ale, but it still is to light to really be anywhere near representative of pie in a glass.

In the bottle from Total Beverage. Seriously, this is actually the orange color of a pumpkin. Has a big white head. Strong aroma of pumpkin pie spices. Flavor is a bit on the vegetable side. Has a good pumpkin taste, but lacks the over sweetness of many such beers. This does not taste like boiled cabbage as do many pumpkin beers. The spices are strongly pronounced in the finish. Smooth palate is not spicey burning hot. Not as good as O’Fallon, but way better thanCoors in the punkin department.

In bottle. Nice orangey amber color, smells like pumpkin pie spices. I felt this beer compromised itself by going for both a pumpkin and a spice flavor. I felt it ended up rather squash-y, with a weird zucchini flavor. Perhaps this means they just went all-out and added more pumpkiin than the others; if so, kudos for the effort, and just either add more or take out the cinnamon, please.

Orangish in color, this light colored brew has a slightly spicey aroma, mixed with a bit of vegetation. Low malt, heavily spiced, with a nice light hop bite near the end, this is an easy drinking, light pumpkin beer that isn’t great, but is tasty enough to try again!
