Generally with a pumpkin ale I expect a good smell, but this was the worst smelling pumpkin ale I have ever had. The taste was slightly better that the smell, but not by much. The quality of the beer is sub-standard for this style.

It had a good head and even better head retention.

I was super excited to see this pumpkin ale in NM!!! I would have purchased a case... I am glad that I did not, as purchasing one six pack is 6 beers too many of this dud.

I do not recommend this imposter of a pumpkin ale. I have consumed some of the best pumpkin ales in the land (Southern Tier Pumpking, Post Road Pumpkin, Smuttynose Pumpkin, O' Fallon Pumpkin, Weyerbacher Imperial Pumpkin, among others). Now, I have consumed one of the worst pumpkin ales in the land :(

Eye Candy: The only thing going for this beer. Night dark amber with a beautiful creamy off white head. Plenty of rising carbonation. Looks inviting...

The Nose Knows: faint pumpkin, whiff of spices. Astringent grains, odd metallic characteristic.

Tongueland: grainy, cooked vegetable, metallic. Absolutely no mouthfeel at all. Thin and watery.

Bender Factor: at 4 % ABV (who they hey brews a 4 % brew these days) thats a no go. I wouldn't drink more than one of these anyways.

A nice orange color with a decent head after a hard pour. But before I look away, the head quickly shrinks to almost nothing, just a thin trace on top of less the 5% of the surface.

It smells very spiced. I really can't smell any pumpkin. I think the spices are allspice and clove.

After tasting I really wonder if there is any pumpkin in this. The spices are sure there and that is about it. A very slight bitterness is hidding in the back of my throat after swallowing each mouthfull but it doesn't feel like hops to me. It reminds me of soda water or seltzer water. A slight stickness with no flavor. Very disappointed. Not recommended.

This beer feels watery.

Like the previous reviewer, I thought this beer would be a different, wonderful taste on the bevy of pumpkin beers out there.

It's super one-note, and I don't get why a number of pumpkin beers out there, of course including this one, don't just go very straightforward and try to faithfully mimic what pumpkins taste like-- perhaps I'm looking for a light, creamy, foamy, sweet, pumpkin beer, or a darker, more robust, spiced pumpkin. Either would have fixed this tepid problem. A well-balanced pumpkin beer, with appropriate experimentation (and test audiences) and batches that come out consistent shouldn't be hard for a brewery that has nationwide distribution.

I'm a little disappointed and it's difficult not to show that in this review. It's hoppy, with a smell like pumpkins, but comes off like an amber with almost zero remarkable qualities. Hooray.
