My boyfriend, having heard several current and former Utahns recount tales of the states truly insane liquor laws, decided to buy up every kind of beer from Wasatch available at Specs. Its a great thing to support Utah brewers! Dont expect too much from them though; this was my favorite of their offerings, and its just "quaffable, but hardly transcendant," to quote "Sideways."

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2011 Purchased on my trip to Vegas at the Total Wine store. Second of two pumpkin ales tonight (the other being the Shock Top Pumpkin Wheat). Pours a deep amber colour with a beige head that stays a bit more than the ST and lacing is much better. Tiny particles float around and a little haziness installs itself at the last pour. Pumpkin nose with hints of spices (nutmeg) and soap. The taste is a bit more on the cloves side of things, with hints of pumpkin and a bread finish. Still, everything is pretty mild as this is a light beer at 4% ABV. Not sure if I prefer it to the Shock Top version.

12oz bottle. Dull amber pour with a small amount of white head. Aromas of cinnamon, pumpkin, clove, and allspice. Flavor is lots of spices - cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg - but not overpowering. Body is lacking a bit but overall has lots of good flavor and is very balanced.

Bottle:   Amberish, a bit hazy, lively carbonation, thin to moderate white head, spotty lacing.   Spiced nose, a bit of candle, otherwise pumpkin pie, cinnamon, and nutmeg.   Wow, on the tongue its much more subtle.   Spices arent as big as the nose suggested.   Thats good considering the biggest thing about this was the candle like aroma.   Not too bright tho, spices arent very sweet.   They fade, leaving a bit of that candle I got on the nose.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Lingering scented candle.   Spices need to be stronger to combat that waxiness.   Thanks for the bottles Dallas!

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - OCT 28, 2011
Bottle. Pours a thick and glassy amber with a lively body and a thick off-white head. Aroma is an assertive yet delightfully restrained blend of nutmeg, pumpkin, and cinammon. Flavor is a disappointing seltzer water with nutmeg and cinammon thrown in as an afterthought. Watery mouthfeel. Old bottle? Very watery and half-assed.

Draft at brewpub. Easily the best beer here. Big pumpkin pie on the nose. The flavors hit you in waves on the tongue. Very bold yet subtle somehow. Fantastic!

thirdeye11 (6114) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 19, 2011
(12oz bottle) clear medium amber with no real head. nose of cinnamon, apples, light clove, and pumpkin pure. Smells spiced just the right amount. Taste of cinnamon, butter, clove, nutmeg. A little light in body and a tad watery but it does make it very smooth and drinkable. Overall a very solid pumpkin beer.

Pours clear orange amber with thin white head. Decent lacing as it goes down. Nice spicy aroma of cinamon and clove. Flavor is lingering light pumpkin. Lasts nicely. Decent beer.
