Clear orangish red. Modest head.

Subdued but pleasant odor

Definite pumpkin taste - in the ballpark with the Lakefront pumpkin-wise. Unlike the Lakefront (granted that was a lager) this definitely has a solid and appropriate beer taste as well.

A solid fall beer that we'd order again.

this is a good pumpkin beer. is a clean brownish amber. the smell is filled with spices- cinnamon and nutmeg, also there are hints of vanilla. there taste starts off spicy but quickly fades to a watery finish. over all this cottonwood pumpkin is drinkable, I have had a few weak pumpkin beers this year. this one definitely brings it up front, but it falls short on the back end. not too shabby.

The bottle I got looks completely different than what is listed in the picture on this page.

Anyway, the one I bought was good and worth trying. It's that first sip that caught my attention.

The other bottles I bought were not all that (I got it in a 6-pck case), but this first bottle I drank hit the spot.

I could smell the pumpkin scent and it smelled fine.

It may not be the greatest pumpkin ale that I have had, but certainly worth trying.

Poured into pint glass from a 12 oz bottle. Good pumpkin color with a nice head. Smells of cinnamon and cloves. Initial tastes bring about pumpkin, cloves, cinnamon, but the spice is not over powering. Not a lot of carbonation, very drinkable though. Overall, this beer seems to be a sessionable option for a pumpkin ale. Would buy again.
