12 oz. bottle, with best before 02/14/2014 printed on the label. So I'm a little late on this one, but I'm not scared! Cleaning out the last of the remaining pumpkin beers. 3% organic ingredients according to the label.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - Pours a beautiful amber orange colored body with some dark flecks of sediment floating about. About a finger and a half of frothy tan head, with some thin scattered lacing. Looks pretty damn nice for an older pumpkin beer, that's for sure.

S - Smell is comprised of the usual suspects - earthy malt, slight yeast must, buttery diacetyl / buttered pie crust, brown sugar, & herbal spice rack notes. Smell is nice, but is softer than it has to be, and tragically any actual 'pumpkin' fails to come through in the aroma.

T - Taste follows the nose - the bready caramel malt is dominating though. Bready and buttery with mild earthy hop bitterness. Herbal spice rack notes are noticeable, but firmly in the background. Slightly buttery and gourdy, so I guess this is where the pumpkin comes into play.

M - Feel is crisp and clean, with mild bready malt and some hop bitterness on the palate. Medium bodied with slightly high carbonation.

Overall, a fairly distinct pumpkin beer in a crowded genre. Slightly filling and dessert-ish, but low on the alcohol with only 4.00% abv. Reminds me more of a pale ale in a lot of ways. Not soda-like or fizzy. A nice pumpkin beer for sure, I'm not sure why it has such poor ratings, but I would have it again.

A lot of pumpkin and spice in the aroma, with some malt sweetness to back it up, but no hop presence or bitterness at all. The flavor starts with the pumpkin, but has a bit stronger of a malt presence, with bready malt character coming through. There is a bit of a bitterness in the flavor, but you really need to search for it. Not bad, but a touch too sweet for my taste

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: Pours an opaque mahogany with a thin mocha head.

S: Pumpkin, toasty notes, malt, and a bit of mild fruit in the nose.

T: Nice toasty pumpkin, malts, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves.

M: Medium bodied and smooth.

O: If you like the style, I recommend it. It's a very good beer to me, but I'm a fan of the style, especially when the flavor of pumpkin and spices are well represented. Also, the toasty malty notes make a great addition.

A- pours a slightly hazy orange with a one-finger creamy off-white head that retains long after the pour

S- raw vegetal aromas with strange aroma of ketchup. Strangely enough, the only other pumpkin ake that I've had that had a ketchup aroma also boasted about its pumpkins being organic. Nonetheless I'm getting a strange V8 aroma.

T- faded pumpkin spices mixes with raw pumpkin flavor, the ketchup shows up again in the finish, with just a bit of toasted malt at the end

M- medium body and carbonation leads to a foamy and almost chewy mouthfeel with a smooth finish

O- I love pumpkin ales, as I've graded over 30, but the ketchup aroma and flavor just didn't do it for me
