Pours a deep brown with a paper thin white head. Aroma of brown sugar and caramel malt, pumpkin pie spices. Taste is very sweet, caramel, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg etc. a bit too sweet for me. Very thin in body.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2015 I can’t get these punkin beers; they’r rather dull and usually have more spices than punk, if any. Spices abound in this one too. Yep, these beers need more co2, tartness, sugar and less dullness. Not impressed.

Panama City, Fl. - Kwiker Liquors #2 - 12 oz bottle. Slightly hazy medium copper pour, little to no head. Aroma is slightly funky with some sour vegetable notes. Flavor has a hint of pumpkin pie spice, a touch of ripening vegetables, a brief touch of vanilla. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Had better pumpkin ales.

Orange colored pour with a small off-white head. Watery aromas of faint spices. Flavor is similar. Very weak all around.

12 ounce bottle
I do not know what I was hoping for with this. It is a typical Rivertown letdown complete with the faint promise of something good. If you want a better example of what the area is capable of try almost anything else instead.

Aroma / Appearance - The fluid orange base has an innocuous appearance that pairs well with the minimal head. Watery nutmeg, whipped cream, and an ethereal sweetness need to be more grounded - this feels half hearted from the start.

Flavor / Palate - Carbonated nutmeg and squash are unassuming. Light bodied with a gentle mouthfeel this lacks the punch and depth to be more than a single purchase. I should have known better - if you really must tick it grab a draft sample and move on to better seasonals.

12oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a clear dark copper with a very tiny fizzy head. It almost seems like the cap wasn’t seated properly or maybe it is just under carbonated. Either way not very impressive. The aroma is quite nice and tends to be somewhat heavy on the molasses and cinnamon. There is almost a little roast with it. Reallly good spice to this one and it doesn’t overwhelm in the smell. Good balance. The flavor is quite nice as well. Brown sugar and caramel up front with a touch of cinnamon. There is a really nice malt character but sweetness is kept in check. No hops really at all but there is a mild bitterness in the finish. Nice, full mouthfeel ending with a touch of sweetness. Overall, a really nice pumpkin ale. The spices are not too overwhelming and you can really taste the malt. Well done.

Pours darkish-amber with no head. Aroma is of pumpkin pie spice and malt. Taste is cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice with lightly roasted malt. Where’s the actual pumpkin? Not bad, per se, but pretty damn boring.
