a big bold pumpkin beer, perhaps not the most unique in terms of flavor, but its also one of the least offensive big pumpkin beers ive had. it pours clear bright bright orange, moreso than any other pumpkin beer ive imbibed. couple inches of white head on top, but it fades fast. the nose features some allspice and fresh ginger, a tad lighter on the cinnamon than most. dont smell the pumpkin at all. pumpkin comes in the flavor, sweeter and roasty, brown sugary, buttery. its fall in a glass thats for sure, but the alcohol strength stands out pretty heavily. i enjoyed the aftertaste of this, where the spices continue to evolve. mouthfeel is a little undercarbonated i think, but on the whole, feels about right for what it is. a little overpriced too at 11 bucks a bomber, but its a tasty fall beer.

A: pours a crystal clear honey/orange/yellow. A very thin head developed with a semi-agressive pour. Little to no lacing.
S: nice and complex. A ton of cinnamon, spice and clove. Obviously, some pumpkin too. Do I detect some slight booze too?
T: I get cinnamon and pumpkin right off the bat. This fades into a nice spiciness that brings along a hint of the pumpkin with it. I also detect notes of pie crust toward the back. A nice boozy warmth is present as well.
M: a thinner body with a decent amount of carbonation. It's thin on the tongue as well. A pleasant after taste that melds pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and alcohol.
O: This is a pretty good pumpkin brew. The flavor profile is solid, but perhaps they could easy up a bit on the cinnamon and go with more pumpkin nuances. Also, the body could use some thickening. All and all, not bad.

Poured from the bottle into a sampler glass, one gets a get shot of cinnamon in the aroma.The appearnce was a golden color with an off white head. Without being overdramatic, this is the worst pumpkin ale I have ever had. At first, it reminded me of the little cinnamon hearts at grade school Valentine's Day parties. Then I further though those hot dose of Cinnamon reminded me of Hot Dam! Nobody drinks that stuff straight, and nobody should put it in my beer. When it came to the aftertaste, it got the burn of cinnamon mouthwash yielding to a more mediciney flavor. At least the beer was thin and the taste did not last long. Did I get the bottom of the barrel in my bottle? Pumpkin and clove and the other things people found were nonexistant as far as I'm concerned.

Bottle shared by Jason.

Lightly hazy orange-amber colour, ring of white head, light lace as well. Smell is of cinnamon candy or Big Red gum initially, nutmeg, ginger, bits of pumpkin and a nice bready malt note as well. Taste is cinnamon up front followed by citrus and fruit, a really nice malt presence, ginger and nutmeg , bits of pumpkin but for the most part is fairly subtle. Medium carbonation, medium feel. A nice spicy pumpkin beer, something meant to be shared for sure though.
