This is a decent pumpkin beer. Not my favorite, but solid.

A: Hazy honey. Decent head, not much lace.

S: Spices, nutmeg, cinnamon, pumpkin pie.

T: Nice pumpkin pie taste.

M: A little too much carbonation.

O: Overall this is a solid pumpkin. I don't think it deserves some of the low scores that I see on here. I would recommend trying it.

A - Pours orange with a one finger head. Quickly dissipates to almost nothing.

S - Sour pumpkin and cinnamon take up the majority of the aroma. Ginger notes in the background as well.

T - Light flavor at first, slightly sweet. On the swallow heavy cinnamon and pumpkin shows. The sour flavor shows up as well and persists through the aftertaste.

M - Light body and carbonation.

O - Better than their Pumpkinhead, but I am still not a fan. The sour flavor that I despised in the other beer shows up in this one as well, though not as heavy. Still drinkable, but needs much improvement when there are so many better alternatives.

Pours a light golden color with some obvious carbonation. In four words: Booze meets pumpkin beer. It’s lightly bodied with a pumpkin/pumpkin spice flavor. It has a sweet malty finish on what’s a big, boozy beer. I’m left wondering how it would develop with some age on it.

pours a nice golden hazy honey color. one finger head. retention is average. almost non existent lacing.

not really much on the nose initially. a little nutmeg. strong pumpking flavor after awhile. a little musty

strong canned pumpkin flavor. spices. nutmeg. maybe cloves. nice sweetness. tart. little hop bitterness or flavor. very sweet. a little overwhelming

good carbonation. texture is not bad. slightly syrupy

i dont understand the Fs and D-s this gets. This is a pretty good pumpkin beer. I'd put it up there with punkin and pumking.
