Aroma: Fairly fresh and pleasant pumpkin scent with some cinnamon. Appearance: Dark copper pour with a quickly disappearing head; almost entirely still. Flavor: Mostly pumpkin up front with a bit more cinnamon towards the finish. Palate: Light body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: A perfectly acceptable and imminently drinkable pumpkin beer, but nothing to distinguish it from others in the style. TheHOFF43 (2052) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - APR 10, 2013
Bottle. Pours a weirdish brown. Nice pumpkin aroma, flavor isnt good at all. I hate pumpkin beers. Super thin mouthfeel. bluejacket74 (1996) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - AUG 17, 2012
12 ounce bottle, the new batch just showed up at the store recently. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a clear orange/copper color with an inch off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both decent enough. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices. It also tastes like pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and some molasses. It’s a nice sweet and spicy brew. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit slick with good carbonation. I think it’s a solid pumpkin ale, it’s worth trying. $8.99 a 6 pack.

Poured into a perfect pint from a bottle.
2.75 A: Lightly hazed medium orange color. One finger of frothy beige head that falls quickly and leaves no lacing.
2.5 S: This may be the weakest beer I’ve ever smelled in terms of its pumpkininess. The actual pumpkin comes through fairly well, but the spices just aren’t strong enough. Cinnamon and nutmeg are there, but you really have to focus to tease them out. Aside from that, there’s caramel, molasses, and spring water.
2.5 T: Like the nose, the taste isn’t bad, it’s just hard to find. Super weak spices, just a hint of molasses, and not enough pumpkin to satisfy even the most sensitive of tasters. The beer itself is weak and near flavorless. Hints of caramel and molasses, but that’s it.
2.5 M: Even the mouthfeel is lacking. Medium body. It feels heavier than it is and lacks creaminess. Carbonation level is fine.
2.0 D: I go hard on the pumpkin beer each year and this one is by far the least exciting one I’ve had in years. I’m bummed I bought a sixer of this but happy that this is the last bottle.

Bottle. Orange-brown in color. Light amber head. Aroma, spicy, pumpkin pie. Taste like a nice pumpkin pie, a tad funky after taste.

Poured from a tap. Clear golden color, small white head. Not much of an aroma. Light body with a light pumpkin flavor and a watery finish.

12oz bottle, I admittedly had this a bit too cold, as it was only 42* outside during trick or treat, its your standard pumpkin beer though, not overly sweet like pumking, not spice dominate in anyway, just a good solid balanced pumpkin beer. pdx77 (1483) - Oregon, USA - OCT 10, 2014
From bottle. Clear brown amber color. Aroma is somewhat spiced, but it is very faint. Taste is much better, with pumpkin purée, pie spices, and some caramel. Thin bodied, but it tastes just like pumpkin pie. 574deadzone (1420) - North Central, Indiana, USA - OCT 2, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy orange-amber with a decent sized off-white to khaki head that settles to a ring and doesn’t really lace. Nose involves some restrained pumpkin pie spices, a dash of cinnamon, some actual pumpkin flesh coming through. Somewhat sweet, a bit more bitter. Medium bodied, fairly active, somewhat oily, finishing toasty with spices lingering. An ok brew, but not too exciting. Was looking forward to the contributions of the molasses, but didn’t get much from it. crajun (1273) - , Texas, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Meh. Not much pumpkin. Beer is ok though. An amber. Nice caramel malt nose with some spices. Darker amber pour.
