Pour is a murky reddish with a small white head. Aroma is some pumpkin pie spice with some vegetation. Flavor is nutmeg heavy with a spicy herbal tea. Im not sure pumpkin pie spice and chai tea all come together in this beer as well as it could. The flavors all seem a bit harsh.

Rating from memory, had it yesterday. Dark reddish pour with white head. Spices, pumpkin and a little malty. Not bad for the style.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 30, 2016
Bottle:   Stale brown sugary sort of aroma, a little caramel and toffee.   Not spicy in the traditional sense.   A touch earthy, some biscuit, faint maltiness, little sweetness.   Comes across as a very lightly spiced ale, but unsure if I would call it Pumpkin.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Finish is just a little soily, with very faint spices.   Too light, needs more traditional spices.   Otherwise okay.

bulldogops (2490) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 15, 2016
Rating #2109 - 2015.10.08 - Bottle from CBI Clear copper-amber pour, that produces a bubbly foam. Aroma is potent, lots of nutmeg, cinnamon, hint of allspice. Taste is malty, lots of sweet and grainy notes, and a heavy fleshy pumpkin flavour; despite the presence of fairly heavy flavours, it remains a balanced brew.

Skyview (5866) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 27, 2016
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle from Heritage Liquors in Maplewood, Minnesota. Pours a semi-hazy orange brown colored brew with an average sized beige head that quickly dissipates and leaves behind spotty lacing. Aroma of mince meat pie filling, nutmeg, a hint of berry and pumpkin. Flavor is where the chai tea, nutmeg and toasted caramel malt is better detected. Finish is a touch chalky with a lingering nutmeg and chai tea aftertaste.

Brigadier (3635) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - MAR 29, 2016
12 ounce bottle
For the cost (about $1.69) this was simply too interesting to pass up on a run to the local store. The results dont disappoint. If you expect something amazing look elsewhere but it definitely offers fair bang for the buck.

Aroma / Appearance - Roasted chestnut liquid flows around the glass with ease. Ivory head melts like marshmallows over an open flame. Pumpkin bread, nutmeg, and cooling tea blend into a semisweet cool feel of late fall.

Flavor / Palate - Fresh chai crests on a wave of bubbly whipped cream. Squash and chocolate chips refresh the palate. From start to finish the experience remains well balanced. Id recommend this to anyone looking for a different sort of fall seasonal.

12 oz bottle from notes, picked up locally. Pours a clear amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have pumpkin pie spices, mild pumpkin, Chai tea, herbal, thinner body, willing to try once but not revisit.

recd in trade from ?? cant think of a beer that I wanted to try less - had this in the fridge for months..not sure this was a beer, but this was a good interesting drink, I dont know what chai or chai tea is and cant really describe it - little to no pumpkin; nice different drink

(bottle - 12 oz) Copper pour with a fizzy off-white head. Herbal sweetness in the aroma with a ton of pumpkin pie notes. Flavor is like you took a pumpkin pie and blended it with a chai. Lots of good spice and really nice. [9/12/15]
