I'm not sure if I had a bad bottle but this is one of the worst beers I've ever had. Doesn't even remotely taste like pumpkin but super sweet. Drain pour most of it.

The beer pours a very light and white foamy head that dissipates very quickly. The beer itself is a clear copper that isn't anything to write home about. The beer smell has strong spice, pumpkin, hops, and vanilla notes. The spice notes are very light compared to other pumpkin ales and barely register while the vanilla and hop notes dominate the smell. The hops are floral and lightly bitter. The pumpkin also shows up but is dominated by the vanilla. The taste is similar to the smell in that the vanilla dominates the pumpkin and other notes. However, the hops and the vanilla mix well with the pumpkin and make it a more interesting, if not more complex. The mouthfeel is medium-bodied with very little carbonation and the pumpkin has a fairly velvety feel to it, which isn't bad and works a bit with the kind of beer. Overall, a much better offering than Pumking and probably worth getting over that one for next year.

Poured a very deep Amber. The spices were evident immediately but way to much. It smelted like cinnamon ginger and allspice. Just very overpowering. I forgot there was a beer underneath that nose. The taste was again spice dominating and not particularly well balance do. As it warmed it got a little less messy but something just tasted off. The hops were not evident and the malt character was not really there.
