1.6/5  rDev -45.4%
look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 1 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 2.5

A: Pale yellow with slight orange tint. Very fizzy head like a soda.

S: Pronounced floral hop nose with a hint of pumpkin pie like spices

T: Very light fizzy beer with pumpkin spices added. Very little malt taste and hops accentuate spices. Pumpkin flavor tends to vary from bottle to bottle and is very inconsistent even in one six pack. Had a six pack of these and each one seemed to have a different amount of pumpkin flavor. Do they need to be slightly shaken to get the pumpkin flavor to mix into the beer? Did I leave the spices in the bottle?

M: Very thin and fizzy like a combination between a macro lager and a soda.

D: Very drinkable beer due to the light fizzy feel. Spice variation makes it hard to keep coming back for the flavor.

I was very disappointed with this beer. I am a big fan of the pumpkin beers and look forward to the season. Thought I had this particular one at a restaurant a few years back, that is why I bought the six pack. Wish I had saved the money.
