Best pumpkin beer. Can only. Lake Barrington, IL brewery. Best mixture of spice and flavor FROTHINGSLOSH (7796) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 6, 2014
The can was the best part of this beer. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz can this beer poured a cloudy orange-caramel color with a medium sized creamy-soapy off white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was sour, tangy and industrial with notes of corn and cinnamon. The flavor was tangy, industrial and corny with a bit of cinnamon, nutmeg and yeast. Medium finish and medium body. Not good. fidemaster (322) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - DEC 26, 2013
Does not have much of an aroma. It has a very pale color. Very generic beer taste. Maybe a hint of pumpkin, but overall not much flavor. Local brewery, so I really wanted to like it. One of the best looking cans on the market. rubbishystuff (2538) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 31, 2013
Thanks to Gil. The hop flavor in this seemed a little out of place. Brighter in flavor and appearance than some other pumpkin beers. Serving: Can Travlr (24663) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - OCT 10, 2013
Bottle at Crios. Hazy golden amber color, small off white head. Aroma of light spice and just enough goird. Taste is pretty well balanced and not over spiced.

It poured an orange color with a white head. The aroma was of pumpkin pie spices, tea, sweet and sour malts with lots of clove. The taste was of cloves, cinnamon, pumpkin and sour maltiness. Average. Fredis23 (564) - Hickory Hills, Illinois, USA - SEP 17, 2013
Dirty Hazy Muddy Brown, Big Foamy White Head, Good Lacing. Mild Pumpkin Aroma. Pumpkin, Cinnamon. Watery with dry cinnamon tingly finish. Might be my first Pumpkin Ale. Interesting. Harvest / Halloween Season is upon us. There are so many Pumpkin Beer Choices in stores, that I’ll definitely try more.While I’m not really a fan of pumpkins or cinnamon, beer driven curiosity wins. Worth a Try. Plus, it is local brewer, so I need to add another place to visit on my TO DO list... ryecatcher (1436) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 17, 2013
Can. Pours a deep ambery-orange, medium head decent retention and lacing. Nose is pumpkin, hints of pie spice, whiff of malt. Mouth is medium bodied, pumpkin, pie spice, cereal, cake. One of the better pumpkin beers I’ve tasted, but Pumking is still the reigning mad overlord of pumpkin beers. jmohno (1618) - Iowa, USA - SEP 13, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2013 Dark orange,light head,little lace. Hazed. Decent froth.
Aroma is some generic pumpkin spice more of a nutmeg/allspice maybe,a bit of breadiness along with some vegetal/earthy tones.Slight orange.
Taste is mild with citrus,spices,mineral,orange.Its kinda like an octoberfest/blonde mix but with spice to describe the type. Medium light bodied,citrus,mineral finish,slight earthy clove in the end wich im not that fond of. Pretty sessionable beer overall,mildly festive with the spice. Good pumpkin beer,fits in pretty average maybe a bit above avererage,nothing offensive. Definatly would be a party crowd pleaser,easy drinking,nothing over the top,festive and pretty decent. I could bang out a sixer of these if I felt up to it on a holloween party if I felt like it worthy of sharing also.Like the design too.Im liking it more I try this. thegreenrooster (4396) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 21, 2013
Pour is a dark orange with a large white head. Aroma is burning at first then comes a slight pumpkin. Flavor is slight pumpkin and a small amount of spice. If you like some pumpkin beers but don’t like the ones that are overly spice heavy than this is for you. Pumpkin and spice but nothing over the top which I kinda prefer in these beers.
