Mild, but nice nose. Lightly spicy and earthy.

Great body. Light, definitely sessionable, but not watery. Smooth. An enjoyable grain-y, somewhat roasty, cereal note on the finish.

A very sessionable pumpkin ale with flavor but also finesse.
Well done.

A: Pours a frothy white head with complete mirror translucence orange copper body.

S: Aroma I picked up is fantastic earthy pumpkin. No artificial sweeteners , or over spiced regiment. Just roasted pumpkin and brown sugar with some butter. Aroma is fantastic.

T: The aroma really reminded me of Pumpking from Southern Tier. Unfortunately it is not quite on par with it, however the earthiness in this beer totally blows away Southern Tier. This is a down to earth pumpkin beer, one that is not too sweet, or overspiced, just straight up pumpkin. Earthy ground farmy flavors with roasted butter, a great roasted malt presence and of course a tiny bit of pumpkin pie spices. Completely underdone on the spices which I can really apprecciate.

M: Slightly watery, good medium level of carbonation.

O: I am impressed here. This was not a cheap light brown ale with a ton of spices, it actually tastes like pumpkins and I can believe that they are in here. This is completely sessionable and a delicious pumpkin ale with real pumpkin flavor. I cannot think of one that is not a light brown ale that is more sessionable with less flavor.

Poured from bottle into pint glass

Appearance – Pours a medium orange color with a one finger orange tinted head. The head has great retention but does eventually fade to leave a great amount of lacing.

Smell – Up front was a spicy malt aroma. The malt was of lightly roasted malt with the spice being that of what would be expected of a pumpkin pie – cinnamon and nutmeg. A lighter but ever present even pumpkin smell is mixed with these. While the pumpkin aroma is somewhat artificial in nature, it actually blends well with the other smells giving an overall rather nice aroma.

Taste – The taste begins of pumpkin and lightly roasted malt. These flavors are soon met with some of the spices in the nose. Cinnamon and nutmeg come through and meld with the roasted malt and pumpkin to give a spiced pumpkin flavor. Until now the flavor was rather dry, but at the middle a light brown sugar sweetness comes to the tongue and rounds out the flavor profile. This sweetness however fades once again to leave a slightly more dry and unsweetened spiced pumpkin flavor on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The beer is rather thin in body and the carbonation level is rather high. While the carbonation level does make it more refreshing, the beer could really use a boost of body. Like a pumpkin pie or pumpkin squash a creamy body really is much nicer for the pumpkin and spice flavors.

Overall – The flavors are on the lighter side and the sweetness is somewhat low as well giving it a light and crisp flavor. Ii you want a session pumpkin then this may be it.

Pours a clean deep orange-ish color with an off white head. In the aroma, vanilla, cinnamon and spice, with a note of pumpkin fruit. In the taste, spices stand out, with a nice note of pumpkin, but a bit watery. A spice bite and a medium to lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a small dry mellow spice and a note of pumpkin in the aftertaste. Spicy, a bit sweet, and water, but decent.

Poured from bottle to tulip.

A: Very nice light orange color, slightly lighter than most pumpkin brews.

S: The spices really come through in the smell. The pumpkin smell loses out to the spice aroma, but it still smells more like pumpkin than pie which is a plus in my book.

T: This needs a bit more pumpkin for me, but it still tastes of pumpkin. The pumpkin and spices are well balanced (I just happen to like them more pumpkiny than spicy). The nutmeg is not overpowering which is where pumpkin brews lose me so I would take this over many other pumpkin brews. All in all, it comes together nicely.

M: Very light here, but very good.

I actually have to second OneDropSoup…. This one is a really nice pumpkin brew but come the end of October I would want something a bit more potent both in mouthfeel and pumpkin taste. It makes me very happy when it is still a bit warm out and I’m in the mood for pumpkin beer.
