Purchased this because i really enjoy Hop Nosh from Uinta. Came in with relatively high expectations (given low price) because of this. Very disappointed.

Pour is orangeish-amber, mild head, similar to other good pumpkins.

Smell is very mild, very subtle pumpkin pie spice aroma. Very worrisome for me.

Taste is just not there. No malt at all. Pumpkin/spice notes are so mild, they feel like they are almost there. Aftertaste is strange, almost like I'd expect from a homebrew lager.

There is very little to this beer, it isn't awful but not enjoyable in any way either. I would have drank the rest if nothing else was around, but ended up leaving it at a BBQ. I won't purchase again.

I should point out that I enjoy a good pumpkin ale in the fall and look forward to sampling new ones. This is far from the worst pumpkin I've had.

Pours a deep pumpkin color. The color actual looks more like real pumpkin was used than most other pumkin beers. Aroma is light, pumpkin, whipped cream, sweetness and a hint of pumpkin pie spices. Taste is very very light and actually pleasant. It is a little too light and some of the pumpkin flavor is lost, but it is a nice change from the overspiced other seasonal ales. Mouthfeel is nice and not bitter, just overall, a very light punk'n ale !!

Similar to DFH Punkin but not as balanced. Heavier on the spice.

Poured from 12oz can into my Deschutes tulip.

Appearance: rich orange hue with a very light haze and a moderate effervescence. Head pours a finger of frothy ivory foam. Nice!

Smell: light and malty, rather like an English bitter. There is pumpkin here, but also an interesting vegetal aroma. Spicing seems very mild for the style -- maybe just a hint of cinnamon and nutmeg right at the end.

Taste: toasty, and rather a lot like an English bitter. Again, there's a very vegetal-tasting pumpkin element which, while perhaps not off-putting, is a little weird. As in the aroma, the spicing is quite mild. It's OK.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a decent carbonation and a pretty good creaminess. I like it.

Overall: this is an interesting beer. I feel like the pumpkin is very natural and not overdone, but I also feel like it's not very polished. Worth a try if you're a huge fan of pumpkin beers, but otherwise it's merely an OK quaff.
