look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Amber-brown color very clear
a very spicy smell. clove, nutmeg, ginger, and cinnamon. Almost pumpkin pie but really just the spices.
Taste like Pumpkin and cinnamon mixed in with ginger and nutmeg but very light. Not strong at all.
light body and very smooth goes down very easy
Over All this is what I would call a lite pumpkin ale if such a thing was made. I can drink it but I would not go out and get it

Serving glass: Clear amber-orange with thin off-white head.

Smell: Lots of spice in the aroma, with cloves, ginger and cinnamon most noticeable. Some light caramel and pumpkin.

Taste: Caramel and nutty pumpkin, with a very spicy layer on top. Notes of cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and ginger - the nutmeg and allspice last long into the finish.

Feel: Moderate carbonation, fairly light body, dry finish.

Overall: Great low abv Pumpkin Ale.

Had on tap at the Bryant Lake Bowl. It pours copper tinted amber under a 1” cream colored foam collar. Pumpkin spice aromas – clove, cinnamon, and ginger dominate the palate in a medium light bodied beer with medium carbonation. An easy drinker.

Had on tap at the Groveland Tap in St. Paul, MN. Served in a British style tulip pint glass.

Appearance: Bright amber orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. About three fingers of off white head with decent retention. Lots of sticky lacing.

Smell: Strong aroma of cinnamon spices up front with nutmeg and pumpkin pie. Hints of bready caramel malts, apple, and earthy hops. Smell is very spicy and moderately sweet.

Taste: Like the smell, lots of spicy cinnamon and nutmeg up front. Solid body of pumpkin pie flavor with hints of caramel malts, toffee, and apple. Hop presence is very light. Fairly spicy and sweet while still being well balanced.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate level of carbonation. Very smooth. Spices leave a nice lingering aftertaste in the mouth.

Overall: A very solid spiced pumpkin beer. Full flavored and pretty easy drinking.

On tap at Ngon Vietnamese in St. Paul and served in a tulip. Can't say I'm a fan, the beer is too thin for the spices and comes off to perfumey and like an overpowered scented candle. The cinnamon and nutmeg are just too much. The mellow and subtle pumpkin flavor is actually really nice and complex, but the spicing levels are too much. Also, the flavor reminds me oddly enough of apple cinnamon cider, that can't be good for a pumpkin beer.

UPDATE 11/24/10: Tried this again at Stub & Herb's and found it to be a pleasantly drinkable pumkin beer. It was relatively thin, but not too thin. There was a big pumpkin pie flavor with a good hit of cinnamon.

22 oz. bottle poured into a shaker pint.

Appearance-Amber-brown color with decent clarity. Dense, creamy, pale beige head has decent retention.

Aroma-Very spicy up front with clove, nutmeg, ginger, and cinnamon all in the forefront-somewhat reminiscent of mulling spices. Light squashy/faintly nutty aroma in the background. Has an overall sort of holiday spice cake aroma, with slight presence of bread and brown sugar. Pleasant.

Flavor-Thin and strangely sweetish up front, with a watery pumpkin candy character at the start, before a bit of the spice begins to open on the mid-palate. The finish bears suggestions of clove and nutmeg, but is quite weak compared to the aroma. The aftertaste is actually moderately pleasant with some of the pumpkin flesh notes starting to come forward, but on the whole I'm not very enamored with the flavor here. There's also a strange tartness to the palate as a whole that I find unpleasant.

Mouthfeel-Medium light body, and it feels a bit thin and watery. Moderately high carbonation doesn't help this impression.

Smells promising, but the flavor really doesn't deliver-with strange, tart, pumpkin-candy flavors which fizzle to a lightly sour, lightly spiced pumpkin flavor. Just not that good.

Beautiful color and short lived head.
Tasted tart. Hand written expiration date on bottom of 750ml bottle 1.15
Thin mouth feel. Not much pumpkin pie taste.
Again tart dry finish.
Would I buy again? No. Local brewery and I always look for something special.

Had this on tap least year and was blown away by how much it tasted like pumpkin pie. Just grabbed a 4 pack of cans and it's not as good as I remember. Smells like pumpkin pie, but taste is more of spices (cinnamon, nutmeg). It does look good in the glass, but a little thin on the feel.

Hazy pumpkin pie coloration. Very little head. Smell is fall spices and potpourri, it's a pleasant smell but not something I would expect in a drink. Taste is nutmeg and a bit creamy. A bit thin

Poured a light copper color color, and produced a 2 finger beige head. It disapated quickly.
The smell was of pumpkin pie. Yum!
The taste was similar , but not as much of the pumpkin pie taste came through. It had a slight sour finish. Light mouth-feel, an high-ish carbonation.
The smell was great the taste that followed was a little bit of a let down.

Thanks to Rob for sharing.

Here is a Pumpkin Ale and it's the right time of year and one of my favorite styles of beer. Smells of cinnamon and nutmeg, a bit of squash. Taste is immediately overshadowed by the extremely watery mouthfeel. This has some promising flavor..cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, pumpkin squash..it's there, but it's akin to drinking a glass of water that somebody's gone and added cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice. Bad. Alas, too bad. It's also not sweet enough to hold up the spices properly and there needs to be more buttery malt. Here's yet another mediocre or less beer from Flat Earth.
