Pours a clear, dark amber with a medium white head that rapidly fades. Aroma has pumpkin, nutmeg, spices, and cinnamon. Its on the potent side, and has more of a pumpkin smell than many of these. The taste contains much of the aromatic impressions but in varying degrees. There is a lot of cinnamon and spice in here, less nutmeg, while even fewer pumpkin notes. The minor impressions do enough so that you don’t feel that you’re drinking a glass of spice. Medium to light in body, slick in texture, with softer carbonation. Aftertaste is minimal. Overall, this might be one of your better pumpkin beer offerings. Chuckaduck (674) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - AUG 13, 2013
Bottle. 8/13/13. Pours a cloudy amber-brown with a thin white head. Aroma is bread, vanilla, banana, pumpkin, clove. Taste is more bitter than expected; alcohol, pumpkin spice, grass, some spruce-like hops, bitterness, bread, touch of banana, spices. No lacing. Medium carbonation. Oily, slick mouth feel. Flavorful but the bitterness is just a touch too assertive. Overall, pretty good. Lemke10 (987) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 23, 2013
This fall seasonal from Tyranena is quite unique. There is a very rich smell of pumpkin and spices while you pour this medium brown beer. The overall taste is hard to describe because I’ve never had a pumkin ale taste like this before but the spices are very evident in its taste. Definetly a beer to get you into the fall mood. benpickens (527) - Camarillo, California, USA - OCT 26, 2012
Hands down the best non-imperial pumpkin beer I’ve had. Pours clear red with a light head that doesnt hold well. Oily syrupy texture and mouth feel. Aromas of pumpkin pie and cloves. Finish is long and oily. Superb. Jethro6191 (508) - Indiana, USA - OCT 22, 2012

On tap at Rocky’s Sub Pub in Jeffersonville, IN. poured in a Tyranena pint glass. Pours a dark orange/amber color with a decent white head and good amount of lacing. Aroma and taste is an amazingly nice balance of pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, and spices. Medium body with a creamy texture and low carbonation and a great finish of spices that sticks around awhile. Easily one of the best pumpkin ales out there!

12oz bottle shared. Pours orangish color to reddish brown with yellowish head. Decent lacing on the glass. The aroma is spice as in cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, clove and pumpkin. The flavor was much better than anticipated. The spices are evenly balanced and there is a good flavor of pure pumpkin in this.
