I’m just not a big pumpkin beer drinker. First couple sips OK like a dessert drink but after that I’m just finishing to finish. It’s me not you if you like it. My wide likes pumpkin beers she will probably like this. lobosaintori (89) - - SEP 30, 2015
pours a nice reddish brown has very a little tan foamy head. the aroma is pleasantly obvious with touches of spices. including cloves, nutmeg, cardamom and cinnamon, the pumpkin is noticeable in the undertones. taste is good but not great. not bad for a pumpkin bear. has noticeable sweetness. finish ends too quickly and has a slight after taste, of burnt pumpkin.

Nice ruby color and a very small head. Aroma is...pumpkin (and a little sweet bread). Taste is very malty and pumpkiny with a tiny bit of yeast and a peppery zest to it. Aftertaste is like pumpkin bread. A very light body and light but zingy carbonation. Very nice! I’m always a little hesitant with trendy flavors but this is a solid offering. markwise (5441) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - SEP 24, 2015
Bottle from the warehouse. Pours amber with an off-white head. Nose is some gourd, some pepper, spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, allspice. Flavor is similar- some background malt, some nutmeg, some cloves, some allspice, and mild cinnamon. Light to medium in body and not a bad pumpkin overall.

Normally I try to avoid pretty much anything labeled as pumpkin, whether it’s beer or otherwise. But this beer really worked for me. Particularly because, despite the label, it was unexpectedly hoppy with a relatively subtle pumpkin aftertaste, which I found quite pleasant.
I am a little bit sorry that this is trying to be such a distinct fall beer, since I would love having this on a warm summer day. Great feel, and a subtle, yet distinct flavor.

Pours a ruby color. Thick tan head. Not long lasting, some lacing.knickskicks (1162) - - SEP 10, 2015
Aroma is spices. I’m gonna say nutmeg and allspice mostly. If it didn’t say pumpkin ale on the label, I wouldn’t have guessed it. It’s also kinda malty.
Taste is mostly following the nose. I taste the malts. I can taste some pumpkin, but more the pumpkin pie spices. It is very smooth. It’s a touch bitter at the end. It’s balanced, but leaning sweet, but barely.
Mouthfeel is probably the best part of the beer. Medium bodied, rich and a little chewy. It’s very smooth. Highly drinkable.
Overall, it’s good. I’ve had better pumpkin, I’ve had worse. If i were trying to decide between this and a different or new pumpkin, I’d go for the new one. I think this could stand some more spice, or maybe a touch more sweetness.
Orange pour. Nose is pumpkin and spices. Taste is malts and light spuces, pretty bland. markas101 (2455) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - AUG 25, 2015
Bottle, Ann Arbor, MI, USA. Deep clear amber-brown. Minimal head. Metallic caramel aroma with some faint cloves. Flavour is all clove, medium body, sweet, some pumpkin and nice sharpness at the end. Quick3Beers (1236) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 23, 2015
Pours a copper from a bottle, lots of heavy pumpkin spice, not really pumpkin-y, just spice, allspice, cinnamon and clove mainly. An okay dessert beer. swillguzzler99 (188) - Peoria, Arizona, USA - AUG 22, 2015
From a 12 ounce bottle. Pours a medium brown with slight carbonation. Nose is of cloves. Decent taste. Pumpkin is more sweet than spicy. Finish is muted. This one could be more flavorful, but that might be off-putting to the masses.
