not a bad one. the body is full with a bready malt coming thru, like a good pale ale. the autumn spices are there with a slightly peppery hot finish. it's well balanced, and pleasant

A very solid pumpkin beer. Pours a dark amber with a thin head that doesn't trail the glass. The smell is full of pumpkin and spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. The taste is a little sweet in the beginning with the nutmeg and what tasted like a little brown sugar, and then the pumpkin flavor finishes the taste. Very refreshing. Very nice for the price as well.

An above average pumpkin ale that nicely balances the beer with the pumpkin flavor. Very bready. The pumpkin taste is never overbearing. I have others I prefer, but certainly worth a try.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

A: It has a medium amber body, and has the best clarity of any beer I've tasted. Fizzy head, no lacing. Solid looking, but lacks sex appeal.

S: Very nice bending of pie crust and pumpkin; biscuit and cracker. No specific spice stands out, rather it's a well-blended pumpkin spice blend.

M: Lighter bodied, active carbonation. Smooth and soft, but a bit watery.

T: One of the better well-balanced pumpkin beers. It's pureed pumpkin, which seems to have accepted the spice notes more evenly. I get a bit of warming spice on the end, cinnamon and clove mostly. Some unwanted mineral notes (it is a very clean beer), but is not overbearing. Soft vanilla with a graham cracker/pie crust finish. Full pumpkin pie flavor, but lacks a bit depth.
