355mL thanks to Travlr. Pours chill haze deep amber. Weaker white head. Scant lace. Nose is malty, a bit stale, squashy, weak pumpkin, apple juice, some spice. Taste is nutmeg/pumpkin pie spice, buttery crust, moving to a lot of lemon tea and soap. Palate is dish water and chalk. My rating: 2.7 Fiance rating: 3.4

12 oz. bottle. oil slick pour. Hazy golden orange. Bubbly off-white head, tiny bit of lacing on the glass. Aroma of spicy cinnamon. Flavor of nutmeg and vegetable. Malty and pumpkin in the back. Medium mouthfeel. Good bit of carbonation, that you can feel from the middle to the back of your tongue. This one isn’t over flavored, but may be a tad under-flavored.

Bottle from jjpm74 Thanks Nice aroma of spice and some underlying sweetness clove etc Pours a orange amber tone The flavor is where it all goes wrong It is vegetal and bitter tart unpleasant with none of the nice spice that was in the nose After the tart vegetal aspect comes a bitter earthy finish The flavor is acrid and bad really The nose was nice and I wish the flavor would have followed through

Amyliz4 picked up a sixer of this at Whole Foods in Alexandria. Served in a Dogfish Head Alehouse Punkin pint glass.
Pours a slightly-hazed orange color with a thin light tan head and some slight lacing. The nose carries a bit of pumpkin and spice, mostly cinnamon and clove. The flavor is fairly heavy on the spice with quite a bit of cinnamon. Feel is overwhelmingly full of cinnamon and a bit of clove. Medium body with light sweetness. Not a fan at all.

Sweet malt on the nose. Fruity flavor, with a cinnamon finish. The finish is very long lasting. Cant say this is very enjoyable.

POured a light orange color with a big white head. Aroma was of lots of nutmeg and a bit of biscut. Flavor was spices, then really hollow and watery in the middle and then a sweeter pie crust swallow, not horrible, but not everything fits together.

12 ounce bottle from Glenville beverage. Pours an orange color. Appropriate considering, Anyway, smells immediately of pumpkin spice. Taste is bitter. That disappointed me. I really wanted to like this one. Oh well.

Didn’t like this at all. Faint aroma, anemic red/brown body. Slight pumpkin aftertaste. Very light spicy palate. Not very impressive.
