Surprisingly, very good. Beautiful orange color, full bodied, creamy, with a mild pumpkin aftertaste. The pumpkin flavor was not much pronounced while in the mouth and more noticeable after swallowing. Will learn more about beer lingo and nuances as I continue to rate beers on this site.

Crafted in the tradition of the original pumpkin ale, Buffalo Bills, but with better balance, more sweet malt and far less spice bite in the finish. After trying over 36 pumpkin beers over the years, I consider this one my favorite overall. Extremely drinkable yet enjoyable pumpkin flavor, lightly spiced with cinnamon. While it is not a killer pumpkin ale, it is one you can drink for hours on end. Thankfully, the Lion Brewery has maintained the superb flavor consistently since the first release in 2012, which cannot be said for many of the other pumpkin ales. Every bottle in the case was savored and enjoyed without any regret.

I've read this beer is made with real pumpkin and you can tell!
This ale pours with a nice orange pumpkin glow. It has a nice mild head of foam with moderate lacing on the glass. While perfectly carbonated, the bubbles float up through the ale keeping it crisp, fresh, yet comfortably delicious. In my opinion it has a near perfect appearance for pumpkin style beer/ales.

This pumpkin ale actually does have a nice real pumpkin aroma, with the slightest presence of autumn spice (cinnamon), followed by slight fruity notes of alcohol.

The taste of this ale is excellent. Continuing where the aromas left off, well balanced flavors begin with autumn spices, and as the liquid flows through the mouth, where a slight tartness, sweetness, and presence of carbonation and alcohol provide the slight burn of an alcoholic drink, the richness of pumpkin shines through and is left behind as the more volatile tastes mentioned early wisp smoothly away. Another sip begins the cycle all over again, leaving the consumer wanting another sip, and another...

The mouthfeel of this ale is slightly light for a pumpkin style ale. Sometimes I might prefer a heavier feel on cooler, October nights. However, the beer starts smooth, then bubbling burn, then smooth with pumpkin. Perfectly carbonated, slightly thin, but rich enough to warm the soul on a ghoulish evening of the autumn.

My overall rating of this pumpkin ale, considering it is one of the least expensive of the varieties available is excellent! It competes well among the others I've tried, and with real pumpkin (not just spice) this is the real deal! Pick up a pack and enjoy!
