Draft at the brewery. Poured a good looking orange bubbly body under a light cream colored creamy head. Aroma is subtle with the pumpkins, light pie spice of nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla extract, and crust. Flavor isnt quite as good as the aroma, notes of dry toast, pumpkin rind and some spices. Body finishes super dry, medium bodied, creamy, lighter carbonation. Meh.

Bottle:   Strong ginger and cinnamon in this one, soft nutmeg.   Feels warming for only 5.6%.   Fairly smooth, body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Pretty simple overall, but not too light and not over done.   Fairly nice example.

Nice pumpkin. Has the typical spices and gourd aroma. Not quite as pie like as some others. The flavor has more of the vegetable which I like.

Sample pour..copper color..nice looking pumpkin offering..nose is reminiscent of real pumpkins in play here..good presence of spices..nutmeg..cinnamon..light to medium bodied and a pretty well done pumpkin offering that has some strong intense flavor without a high abv..good..

Dark amber thin off white head; aroma is light semi spicy; Flava is rich and spicy notes of cinnamon hints of caramel malt; feels light and medium and fizzy; finishes dry with malty notes and spicy hoppy notes

From a bottle poured a brown color with a good amount of head. Spicy malty flavor with a lingering aftertaste.

No bottling information.
Appearance: The body is a hazy dark rust color, it reminds me of a baked pumpkin pie. The head is thin and tan, mediocre retention and some lacing.
Aroma: Im glad I can actually smell the cinnamon here, its partnered well with the ginger. I cant smell any pumpkin though.
Taste: This is better than most pumpkin beers Ive had light pumpkin and malts on the intro with cinnamon balanced well.
Palate: Medium bodied with a full, near chewy feel to it, very light carbonation though.
Overall: Better than average, worth trying for sure, but Im somewhat over the pumpkin beers by now, they are all too similar.
