Pours a cloudy burnt orange color. Very cloudy indeed. Lots of stuff suspended in there, not floating, just suspended, like it were a gel. I’m going to assume that is spices. Aggressive pour, and didn’t get a finger of head. Retention only around the glass. Barely any lacing.thegreenrooster (4626) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 25, 2015
Aroma is cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and all the things pumpkin pie is made of. There is some caramel malty sweetness, but you’ll have to wade through the spices to find it. Too much spice.
Taste is more of the same. Lots of spice. I wouldn’t say that it’s bad, I think they went a little nuts with the spice. I can taste pumpkin in this, but reduce the spice, and it would really shine. Though spicy, the general taste is quite sweet.
Mouthfeel is medium. The carbonation makes it feel a little lighter than it really is. The spices in this make it slightly difficult to drink. The beer overall is sweet, but the finish is bitter.
Overall, it’s decent. It’s not the best pumpkin beer ever. But reduce that spice and it could be. Many pumpkin offerings make the mistake of being too spicy, but this one could have the best pumpkin flavor of them all. I might try this again in a couple of years to see if they’ve improved on it.
Pour is a murky muddy river water brown with a small white head. Aroma Is a pretty solid mix of cinnamon and nutmeg. Flavor is again a nice pumpkin pie spice mix with some bready malt acting as the pie crust. Pretty straight forward spice/pumpkin beer. Probably more spice notes than the average pumpkin beer I just wish this di not look like river water ads135 (5207) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - NOV 15, 2015
A bit too spicy for my taste. Goes the way of many similar middling pumpkin ales, and loses the milder pleasant elements of pumpkin in the beer. AbbeyRoade (562) - Missouri, USA - OCT 20, 2014
Really bad. Don’t even bother with it. Just a sickly blend of spice/pumpkin flavoring and weak ale. freeofthoughts (688) - Raytown, Missouri, USA - SEP 28, 2014
Tap pours mostly clear orange ish tone with frothy off white foam. The aroma is seasonal spices and sweet malt. The flavor is a light blend of malts and a little tingle of spices, overall light tho and the finish is gone quickly. Fairly enjoyable but a little soft for my preference.

Bottle, poured a Dark orange color. Strong aroma of spice, cinnamon and clove. Flavor was a bit one note. Short finish. Spice and bread. Just ok. 5000 (6900) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUL 20, 2014
Bottle:   Moderately spiced Pumpkin Ale.   A little basement mustiness.   A little bit of spiced Apple cider.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Soft spices linger.   Wished it were brighter.   Average example. bottleforager (3211) - Gray, Maine, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Pours a translucent copper color with a finger of eggshell foam. Nose is what you would expect, pumpkin in a can, cinnamon spice a touch of grain. Palate follows the nose... pretty good balance of sweet and spice levels. Touch of bitterness and underlying beer flavor, nice to remember we are drinking beer here.

Pours a slightly hazy amber with a foamy white head. Aroma is nutmeg cloves cinnamon and I guess some pumpkin. Flavor follows and is slightly bitter. Medium bodied. Drinkable but too many spices. dmac (6573) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - NOV 15, 2013
12oz bottle thanks to Keir. Poured a cloudy orange/ mudbrown with a smaller to average sized frothy light beige head. Aroma started off with some nice spices, nutmeg, cinnamon and all-spice but then some vomit sneaks in there along with rotting pumpkin and bad dough. Medium body with average tight bubbly carbonation with a spicey finish that lingers. Flavor is more bready with lighter pumpkin spices, rotting fruits, touch of vomit again. Meh not great but maybe it’s fading since I am rating it older.
