A rich brown pumpkin ale with a hint of caramel. Pours smooth with a minimal topper. Smells very strong of pumpkin aroma, but has a nice finish. not the best of the pumpkin ales that I have had but one of the better for the end of the season.
Catchy name and worth buying again if you are in the mid-west, I wasnt able to get this from the East Coast.

Pours an orangish rusty color with a small head on it. The nose has faint spice spiraling out the glass (especially cloves) with a touch of pumpkin malts. The taste is watery upfront, which moves to some earthy pumpkin flavors with some more wateriness. Mouth is medium bodied and smooth. Overall, this one is a miss - pretty watery without much taste on the palate of which to speak. I was wanting to try this for a while and was excited to find out my buddy obtained a bottle, but not worth tracking 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.

Heard good things about this and this is the first and only beer I've had from Flat Earth Brewing Company.
A - Relatively dark amber color. No carbonation, not much head, and zero lacing.
S - It smells closer to actual pumpkin pie to any beer I've had before, and to me pumpkin pie smells heavenly. Glorious smell.
T - Taste continues on the pumpkin pie train. It's focuses more on pumpkin pie spices than on actual pumpkin. Great execution in the taste department. Even the aftertaste left me feeling like I had pumpkin pie. This would be something I classify as a desert beer.
M - I'd agree with others saying it tastes a bit too watery and light. No bitterness to this and was easy drinking all the way through.
O - The words that came out of my were "f'n awesome." This was more out of shock because I had no idea what to expect to from Flat Earth. Easily one of the better pumpkin beers I've had, and probably the one that hits the pumpkin pie flavor on the head better than any I have had. Smell was remarkable. It does look and feel kind of cheap. When I have something like Pumking I feel like more TLC went into it. It's definitely something I would pick up again though, and I now feel inclined to give more Flat Earth beers a go.

Appearance - Brown/Amber/Copper color. Looks a lot like the color of an old penny.
Smell - Smells great. Much like pumpkin pie as expected.
Taste - Sweet with cinnnamon and nutmeg. Quite unsatisfying compared to what I expected from the smell. This tates like a chai latte or chai tea
Mouthfeel - Light and watery. Very disappointing.
Overall - Looks good, smells good, and is a total let down. One of my least favorite pumpkin beers that I've tried this fall. Right along with Sam Adams Harvest Pumpkin.
