Bottle.The pour was a cloudy dark amber with a small (less than 1 finger) creamy white head that dissipated rapidly and had fair lacing.
The aroma was of a light biscuit malt and a doughy yeast with notes of nutmeg, cinnamon, brown sugar, allspice and pumpkin.
The taste was sweet and mildly bitter with a hint of brown sugar and cinnamon in the beginning and then became quite bitter with a strong presence of allspice and a hint of pumpkin at the end. The flavor lasted only a short time after the swallow leaving a hint of bitter spice behind.
Mouthfeel was light in body and watery yet dry in texture with a forceful carbonation.
Overall a mild tasting Pumpkin Ale that had a spicy bitterness which laid on the taste buds for a little while.
The aroma is fine, but then comes the taste.. or generally, lack of it. I prefer nice cinnamonny and nutmeggy pumpkin ales that make you long for winter and nice comfy nights together. This lacks this character mostly. Drinks like an ordinairy beer. futureMACH (1) - - SEP 11, 2017 does not count
This has a finish that I initially identified as "shaving cream" but seems to be more "cedar" now that I think about it. Either way, it is... odd. fidemaster (335) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - AUG 28, 2017
Faint aroma. light amber color. Very watery beer! Like a malty coors light. Not much flavor at all, besides some malt. Super disappointing Grumbo (3819) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2017

Decent fall seasonal. Aromas and flavors of pumpkin, spice and earth. Not too sweet with biscuit finish. Copper color with a light body.

Old rating. Bottle from Old Town. Pours a clear copper witih a small white head. Light cinnamon and caramel nose. Simple and easy drinking with some lingering cinnamon and clove on the finish. Simple pumpkin beer. rollinsr (813) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - APR 5, 2017
Pours a clear amber with a thin layer of effervescent head. Aroma is pumpkin spices with apple juice notes. Flavor carries more of the spiced apple cider with a heavy level of carbonation that seems to take away from the flavor.

Tried the original before the new BB label. Poured a light yellowish orange with fizzy head. Strong aroma of pumpkin, nutmeg and cinnamon. Light and bubbly on the palate. Pumpkin spice is obviously the dominate flavor. Compliments a thanksgiving dinner very well. john44 (3331) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2017
Bottle. Amber Gold in colour. Spices (cinnamon & nutmeg) dominate. Sweet malt and light hops. Dry finish. Unpleasant vegetal bitterness in the aftertaste. Not for me. (2008)
