Poured from a 12 ounce can (cold) into a clear glass tumbler; a thin, faint aroma of autumn spices; cloudy gold and orange coloring’s; super thin head; pumpkin pied and nutmeggish flavors. Overall, s’not at all bad; a pumpkin ale that could be enjoyed at any time, but especially with fall and winter sensibilities.

Bottle pours light orange/gold with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet and doughy with lots of baking spice. Cinnamon and nutmeg most present with a touch of clove. Flavor shows the same with a caramel and light pumpkin base. Overall body is light to moderate with a spicy finish.

Kosmokrator (849) - ITALY - DEC 11, 2015
Un assaggio alla spina. Aroma pungente e speziato, zucca, cannella, pepe; gusto dolciastro e poco intenso con note di zucca, malto e poco altro. Acquosa, scipitella, non carbonata.

Metalchopz (3529) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 5, 2015
From Trader Joe in Vegas under the name KBC Pumpkin Ale. Pours a clear golden-orange colour with an average head that does not leave much. Aromas and flavours are like pumpkin pie. Nutmeg spices and some nice sweetness in the taste. Like pumpkin pie in a glass. Does get a little rich, but a pretty nice pumpkin ale overall.

Thechasm442 (1006) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 26, 2015
Bottle. Smell is pumpkin pie, spices, and, some malt. Flavor is more of the same. More pumpkin spice and malt sweetness. Kinda thin and watery. Meh.

3.4
CObiased (543) - Bayfield, Colorado, USA - NOV 26, 2015
Better in cans. Have drank a lot of this beer for years. I know this beer is sub par, but I do enjoy it for what it is and it’s so easy to chug. It pours light in color. The aroma is honey, vanilla and pumpkin pie. Body is very light. Flavors of honey, spices, ginger ale, molasses and creamy light finish. Glug glug yum yum
