look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: clear straw colored. Nearly no head at all.
Smell: ummm...pumpkin pie. As advertised, allspice, nutmeg, cloves. Very nice.
Taste: man, this is nice. Like drinking pumpkin pie. All the spices of the nose very nicely balanced.
Overall: one of the best pumpkin brew IMO. This'll be on Thanksgiving table next year.

A-Pours a nice orange color with a quickly fading white head

S-has a pretty decent aroma to it. I am catching a lot of pumpkin and spice and also some yeasty smells as well

T-Has a yam flavor up front followed by some cinnamon in the middle and then finish's with a yeasty dry finish

M-Medium to light bodied with decent carbonation

D-Overall this was a little bit of a let down.. It had alright flavors but i don't think everything came together like they wanted it to.. Its a decent pumpkin ale but there are tons out there that our better. I'm glad to have tried this but i will reach for something different next October.

A- pours an orangish golden brown with minimal foam that immediately disappears

S- incredibly sweet pumpkin smell and yet not overbearing

T- a little sweeter than expected. Too much ginger

M- light body, but a little coarse on the palate

O- wouldn't buy this one again. Too potent with the overly sweet notes

A: The pour opens up with a autumn orange color with a neat clarity revealing a slow and leisure rise of spaciously separated micro-bubbles. The head is soapy and bubbly, quick to dissipate, with a macadamia nut color leaving a polished surface with no window dressing.

S: Ginger and cinnamon sticks are first to get noticed on the nose, followed by cloves and all spice. A potpourri of holiday spicing. Sweet toasted cereal grains (cinnamon toast crunch), and light toasted apple peels. Strength is dominant at first, a bit animated and exaggerated rather natural.

T: Sweet, dry toasty caramel grains with strong hints of cloves and ginger. All spice and cinnamon are quick to follow up. Flavor is clean and spicy, with a well balanced representation between the 5 indicated spices. While the spicing is indeed dominant there are flashes of pumpkin puree evident as well coming through along with nutmeg and some brown sugar. Lightly dry and toasted bread and grains come on the close along with cinnamon sticks. Spicy and sweet.

M: toasty warm and malty with a syrupy consistency and a quiet carbonation factor. Nutmeg spicing coats the tongue after the swallow.

O: Overall liked the flavor, imperial spicing while the alcohol is hidden rather well behind the sweetness and spicing. Flavor is quite clean and very smooth in transition. Good dessert beer. If you like your pumpkin pie heavily spiced then this may be for you.

While sometimes less is more, here an enthusiastic load of spices was simply way too much - actually overwhelming. Nutmeg, allspice, clove - raid the spice cabinet. A pumpkin pie with this much spice would be overdone, and this beer bordered on undrinkable. Sweet, a bit syrupy malt with some ETOH heat. Struggled on for a while and gave up.
