gripweed57 (1458) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - SEP 25, 2015
12 ounce bottle from Trader Joes labeled as KBC Pumpkin Ale. Bright brassy gold color with a small rocky beige head. Aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg and orange zest. Tangy bready malt flavor has all the obligatory pumpkin pie spice flavors. Light bodied and indistinguishable from rest of the glut of Pumpkin brews.

Cinnamon & light nutmeg with some cloves, toffee notes and light pumpkin notes. Not terrible but not great.

Bottle from Trader Joes Westport. Pours orange with very little white head. Doesnt leave a lot of lacing in the glass. has kind of an artificial nutmeg note on the nose. tastes like bottled spices on the tongue. finished clean. Doesnt seem like a very good version of the style.

Bottle at a co-workers house, thanks for the opportunity, I think. Big sweet brown sugar with plenty of pie spices and little else beer like from this bottle. I guess on the plus side the spices surely drowned out and diacetyl that was probably in this.

euniceradio (517) - Worthington, Minnesota, USA - SEP 16, 2015
12oz bottle to tulip glass. Pours clear gold, soda ring head. Aroma of old malts, dusty pumpkin. Taste is watered down pumpkin soda. Mouthfeel is ultra light, with tons of carb. This beer sucks. Would rather drink pumpkin pie and Bud Light in a blender.

12oz bottle. Pours golden with a small white head. Aroma is of dirty socks and old pumpkins. Aroma is of old pumpkin, dusty malt, and spice. This does not taste good. Mouthfeel is light and very carbonated. This beer sucks.

September 7, 2015 - bottle from Total Wine opened as part of my pumpkin fest. Clear golden pour with some head. Aroma was grainy with some cinnamon. Taste was grainy, sweet malt and cinnamon, maybe a hint of spice in there.

It pours golden with a small head. It has aromas of nutmeg, pumpkin, and a combination of spices that give it a plastic like aroma that isnt all that pleasant. It has flavors or brown sugar, cinnamon, pumpkin, nutmeg, and other spices. It is quite sweet, but a bit too much on the way down.

12 oz bottle. Poured a clear yellow color with a thin white head. Taste of pumpkin spice, clove, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Lively carbonation, thin-medium body and a watery texture. Overall, not bad
