Nice pour, dry pumpkin finish. Could be spicier.

I've heard people either love this beer or hate it. Let's see if it causes me to vomit like so many BA'ers have implied.

Serving style : 12 oz bottle poured into glass

Appearance (3.5) : Wow, it's the color of pumpkin alright. Dark pumpkin flesh, with a tinge of dark amber. Head is about 2 fingers and looks marshmallowy. Leaves very faint broken rings of lace around the glass.

Smell (4) : It's interesting that I said "marshmallow" because that's what I'm getting here. With some warm, sun-drenched pumpkin, dark spice, nutmeg, cinnamon. A pretty good smell. The bottle gives off a stiff pumpkin smell, overpowering everything else.

Taste (3) : A little sour, a bit bitter, sickly even, but ends like pumpkin pie. I like the aftertaste, but to get to it, I have to endure the ripe bitterness that is the woeful forerunner. Out of the bottle I could argue it tastes like Busch beer with pumpkin spice added. Heck, if Busch made a pumpkin lager (despite that this is an ale) that's what it would taste like. The flavor out of the glass is a little more classy, if only a little. Belches are like fresh carrot. ...Interesting.

Mouthfeel (3) : Pretty carbonated, medium bodied, spiced, ends dry.

Overall (3.09) : I don't quite know what to think of this brew. I think I'd lean more towards the "hate" category, but it's not entirely terrible. I'd say it's a notch above Shock Top's offering which isn't saying much. The taste is mawkish in every sense of the word, until you get to the end where you taste fresh pumpkin pie. I don't think the first part is worth agonizing through just for a pleasant three second aftertaste. It's actually giving me a little heartburn too. Ah, I wouldn't drink this again.

Canned version.

A: 4.0 Dark walnut color, clear, with a goodly head and decent lacing.
S: 3.5 Restrained spiciness, to the degree actual pumpkin can be smelled, and light caramel malt.
T: 3.75 Like the nose, this contains a lot less spice than many examples of the style, but there's still a little bit of nutmeg, a touch of cinnamon. And, yeah, there's actual sweet pumpkin flavor (personally, it doesn't do much for me. I drink PA's for the spiciness). Malt adds a little caramel sweetness but it isn't heavy.
M: 4.0 Low strength, but still has plenty of body, and a good soft mouthfeel.
O: 3.75 Well-enough made, but a little boring.

Weighting (percentages): 20, 20, 40, 5, 15. Avg: 3.76
