3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Drank this at gabf last year and was siked to see these tallboys at the lls. This was just canned on september 7th. The taste is still in a bottle/can shock state. I am Going to wait two weeks to review this one again as I am Hoping the packaging shock will wear off and make the beer more of what it should be- pumpkin deliciousness.
Sample at GABF 10/08/2016, thanks to my sis for assistance with note-taking. Brownish-orange color with a medium light beige head that dissipates steadily. Strings of lace. Pumpkin spices and malt in the nose. Medium body with flavors of malt, cinnamon, nutmeg and caramel. The finish is sweet with a pumpkin pie spice and malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

Pours an amber/brown body, head is one finger and sand colored. Lacing is great and head retention is good.
Smells of nutmeg, allspice, clove, all the usual pumpkin spices. Caramel malt and burnt sugar are next, faint earthy hops are also present. No alcohol is detected.
Taste is of a typical yet well made pumpkin beer. Heavy on pumpkin spice, nutmeg, cardamon, allspice and clove. Roasted, biscuity malt seems to be the backbone of the beer, very much like a brown ale. Alcohol is more apparent in the flavor than the aroma though the hops arent really tasted.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied and well carbonated. Head stuck around for awhile and provided some nice frothiness.
Overall this was a well done pumpkin beer, true to style. Nothing outstanding about this style though, doesnt really stand out. Probably wouldnt buy again due to the massive amount of pumpkin beers out there released in a short span. Panzuriel (2306) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - OCT 28, 2016
Appearance: Deep copper brown. Opaque. Thin ring of tiny white bubbles.
Nose: pumpkin earthiness with restrained touches of pie spice. Hints of caramel sweetness
Taste: a bit of caramel and spice over a medium roasted malt and earthy pumpkin base.
Body: medium to thinner
Parting thoughts: A very nice pumpkin. Just enough spice with a good pumpkin flavor. Decent alcohol kick, though.

A decent pumpkin ale overall. Nothing unique but tasty and refreshing. Pours a nice clear Amber with a tan head. Smells of pumpkin and spices. Taste is bright and carbonated, with pumpkin, cinnamon and a bit of a watery finish. Had in the can.

This is an average pumpkin beer. Some vegetable notes. A little dry with some vegetable bitterness at the finish. Bill Becker (1064) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - SEP 6, 2016
On draught at Raccas in Casper.
Pours a clear amber, small head of foam that shrinks to a ring around the glass.
Pumpkin spices in the smell, not particularly strong.
More meat, so to speak in the taste. Nutmeg, pumpkin flavours, still on the milder side but enjoyable.
Medium body and carbonation.
Nice. Jerm719 (194) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - AUG 7, 2016
It’s 90 degrees and I’m drinking a pumpkin beer wtf. Nice balance, pumpkin pie filling, seasonal spices, mild earthy hops, caramel malt. Very average for a pumpkin brew. It’s a pumpkin beer in the middle of the road, not great, not bad. I’ll prolly buy it again anyways.... Headbanger (3999) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JAN 22, 2016
16oz can 2/4/15 (Whole Foods-Lamar)-Pours copper with an off white head. Aroma of pumpkin and spices. Taste of the same. This medium bodied brew is well balanced and is one of the better pumpkins. zoucrew102 (1913) - - JAN 9, 2016
Pint can. Pumpkin spice aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg and clove with some pumpkin and caramel notes. Pours burnt orange with a half a finger of tan head with excellent retention and lacing. Starts with the pumpkin spices mentioned above with a bit of caramel. Finishes smooth with pumpkin sweetness with a bit of roastiness. Nice pumpkin.
