Beer pours golden color with good white head. Odd spicy smell, beer has average ale flavor and body with spices added seeming as an after thought. Not really pumpkin-y but does have pumpkin pie spices. This beer falls into the ya get what ya pay for class as it was only $5 at Trader Joes
pleasant enough, but a very thin and highly carbonated beer that relies a little too much on the spices instead of brewing a good beer. FROTHINGSLOSH (7796) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 28, 2015
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy orange color with a medium sized creamy orange-white head that left decent lacing. The aroma was sweet with cinnamon sugar, nutmeg and a bit of bread. The flavor was sweet and bready with cinnamon sugar, nutmeg and clove notes. Medium length finish. Medium body. Ok. ganache (5896) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 7, 2014
Bottle, screw-top. At least they’re up front with stating it’s "natural flavor" rather than direct pumpkin addition. Nose is seasonally spicy with light earthy and vegetal tones, but overall sweetness is dominant. Pours clear pale orange with a soapy beige head. Thinnish medium body with some actual malt character but more in the way of cinnamon, allspice, and an absolute overload on nutmeg. Off-dry, surprisingly, with nothing but spice in the finish, reminds of the dregs of pumpkin spice lattes and the like; lightly wooden, too, with a touch of bitterness and astringency, artificiality.

Bottle. Clear deep golden color, medium white head. Aroma of fall spice. Taste is watery spice. downender (8658) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2014
Bottle. Clear, deep, gold with no head and slight carbonation. Light and sweet aroma of pumpkin. Full, carrot cake aroma with some cinnamon and artificial pumpkin syrup edge. Strangely drinkable for a ’flavour added’ beer.

Pours a golden amber with fast dissipating head. Smells of cinnamon, nutmeg, taste the same. actually taste more like apples than pumpkin, but overall a nice brew. deyholla (11597) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 26, 2014

Bottle. Pours golden yellow with an average white head. Aroma of light pumpkin, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Flavor was super light and watery with artificial spices and slight pumpkin. PorterPounder (7961) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 9, 2014
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - 12 oz bottle. Sparkling medium golden pour, very quickly fading off-white bubbly head. Aroma has a some candy-like nutmeg and cinnamon notes. Flavor is slightly harsh with an overabundance of artificial spice - mainly ginger with a hint of nutmeg and cinnamon. Mouthfeel is slightly tinny and harsh. Not one of the better pumpkin offers this year. Aurelius (5332) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 5, 2014
