2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle and served in pint glass: Deep amber near brown hue with a fading fizzy head and spotty lace. The aroma has notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, pumpkin meat, caramel, toasted bread, and a touch of earthy yeast esters. Sort of weak nose, faint and hard to grasp. The flavor profile gives a nod to the style but much like the nose is a tad weak and simple. Sweet caramel malts supported by light spice notes and not much else. The mouth feel is sort of slick and lively, gummy finish. Boy, compared to the SA Double Pumpkin I had on tap, this is the fugly step sister. Dumbed down for the masses, sad really.
Pours a light golden amber color. Aromas of light pumpkin, clove, ginger, nutmeg. Holiday spice notes in the finish. Good fall season beer. JPDIPSO (6298) - Wauwatosa, USA - APR 3, 2016
Umber color with a tall, silky beige head. Pumpkin and mild spices, with mace, nutmeg and cinnamon and ginger. Flavors are really thin. Some toasted malt, light spice, and searching, searching… I don’t like to be overpowered by these pumpkin spice brews, but give me something. 5/12

As far as pumpkin beers go this was my favorite outside of dogfishhead punkin . Very easy drinking and just enough pumpkin taste but not too sweet. This one had nice spices on the finish which was my favorite part. Would try again next year.

Chestnut pour, fading finger of tan head. Nose is roasted grain. Little sweet. middle is unsweetened pumpkin, caramel, dollop of spice and earth. Finish is bittersweet. Very drinkable. tysongillmore (362) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 21, 2015
Not a lot of pumpkin flavor. More like an Oktoberfest. Pretty good still. ---Rated via BeerBuddy for iPhone.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle. Copper or Amber color. This is way too much pumpkin spice for me. It's overdone, not as much a beer as a flavored cola

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The beer is a nicest clear amber color with a small off-white head. The flavor has a nice minimal pumpkin flavor that is equal to the aroma. An outstanding pumpkin ale. IslandHaole (1301) - Misawa, JAPAN - NOV 6, 2015
Has an unusual scent of Pepsi Cola with a light sprinkle of Nutmeg. Clear reddish color with a short-lived, foamy tan head. Obviously an "Autumn" brew with the Pumpkin Pie spice flavor.Some cookie dough sweetness, a tad cloying. I’m not a fan of these types of beers, this isn’t a bad beer, just not one I can drink much of. ARH (1139) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 12, 2015
12oz bottle poured into a snifter. The aroma is sweet caramel and pumpkin pie and it pours a clear, oily red brown, amber hue with a llight, off white, dense head that has a light retention and lace. The taste is a nedium high sweet and light bitter combination. The oily texture has a light fuzz, and the medium body has a palate profile that’s burnt caramel with pumpkin pie flavors. The finish has a spice to it with roasted squash and nuts. It’s cloying and sugary with an aftertaste of burnt sugar. TimE (6259) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 11, 2015
Deep autumn color. Malty nose with just a touch of spice. Very full body. But tastes isn’t that strong. Still nice malty brew
