First had: on tap at Pinocchio's, Media, PA
Poured a clear golden-orange, with a thin white head; no retention or lacing to speak of. Smell of cardboard and vague pumpkin juice. Taste was kind of sickeningly sweet right up front with an artificial, plastic-y pumpkin flavor, light spices and some hints of butterscotch. Not very good at all. Very light mouthfeel, almost felt like a Corona. Just way too sweet and artificial tasting, without the body and flavor it takes to make a good beer. Kind of the "beer juice" feeling you get from a typical adjunct beer.
Serving type: on-tap

This beer has a clear golden straw color. Pumpkin and pumpkin spice aromas abound: cinnamon, freshly grated cloves, nutmeg. It’s tasty, sweet, light, and effervescent with a nice finish. The pumpkin spices and the flavor of actual pumpkin come through on the lasting finish. I'm one of the few who really enjoyed this one, more so than its big brother.
