This was beyond bad. Very light cloudy color. Tasted like cold Earl Grey tea. No body, hops and surprisingly, pumpkin taste. This was the FIRST brewpub beer I could only finish two sips then quit. I asked for my money back. My wife thought I was insane. This beer is an embaressment to Federal Jacks. And the barkeep had the nerve to say that it was better than Gritty's pumpkin.

Serving type: on-tap

Pale fizzy gold color with lots of visible carbonation, thin lace of head, very soft orange highlights. Smells like a pumpkin pie candle with a bit too much cinnamon added.

Lightest pumpkin beer i've ever had. But i'm not getting that lager mouth feel everyone else is talking about. But has the body of something like an extremely light Kolsch. Tastes like cinnamon and all spice, semi sweet with a slightly sour finish. Lingering brown sugar sweetness. Tastes more like a cinnamon brown sugar flavored malternative beverage than a beer. Not undrinkable, but severely disappointing, doesnt remind me of the fall or the hearty beers that come with it. I imagine people who love faux-craft would probably love this.

Definitely the worst pumpkin beer i've had.

This beer pours a clear golden color. The head is a quarter inch in height, and recedes within seconds into nothing. The aroma is of ginger, allspice, and nutmeg. The spice is so strong that it not only burns my nostrils it also burns the back of my throat. The taste is similar to the aroma with the same burning sensation. The mouthfeel is thin with a watery texture. Overall, this is a awful beer that I hope I never have to look at again much less drink.
