Reviewed from tasting notes.

Pours out a dark yet translucent brownish-amber color with a brief minute of one finger tall off-white head that leaves behind some minimal lacing. Light thin body, medium carbonation.

Smells of sweet molasses, a bit of pumpernickel bread, and a lot of oven-toasted pumpkin seeds with lesser amounts of nutmeg used as garnish. The flavor is a lot less bold than the aroma, but still contains semi-dry molasses and a lightly toasted pumpkin seed emphasis. It could use somewhat more breadiness and spicing in the flavor. It is memorable mostly for keeping the pumpkin emphasis focused upon pumpkin seeds and not the flesh.

A- pours dark brown with a redish hue, small light tan foamy head that reduces to a small layer, nice lace.

S- cinnamon, nutmeg, sweet nutty malt, a bit subdued.

T- sweet malt, a bit of pumpkin pie spice, finishes slightly dry and clean. Nothing really stands out.

M- medium body, moderate carbonation, foamy mouthfeel.

O- middle of the road pumpkin ale, nothing really sets it apart from the pack in terms of taste but worth trying.

This pumpkin is kind of old school - not very good. This been the year that many new very good pumpkin beers have been release, but this one is pretty boring.

This is a dark pumpkin. Hops is not to be tasted. There is a bit of spice and actual pumpkin flavor and plenty of malty sweetness.

There is no head. You probably could drink a couple, but I wouldn't want to . Not something I will buy again.

Poured into a glass, it produced a 2 finger tan head. No real lacing. Beer color is dark, slightly translucent mahogany.
The smell is lager like, with biscuit, and a hint of pumpkin/spice.
Taste was similar, but would have liked more pumpkin,and spice. Medium bodied, and medium carbonation.
It's a nice easy drinking beer. Nothing spectacular, but good.
