Loved this beer. Perfect fall time taste. Hints of cinnamon and spice but not too much where it becomes overbearing. Tastes and smells exactly as the name suggests. There was just enough pumpkin flavor where it still felt like I was drinking beer and not pumpkin juice. Smooth finish with pleasant, somewhat spicy aftertaste.

Serving type: on-tap

The beer looked orange in color like the flesh of a pumpkin, with a striking clarity. There wasn't much of a head, and the carbonation bubbles formed wispy streamers. The smell was quite a bit like pumpkin pie, with the vegetable smell mixing with cinnamon, and dough. The taste was much more intense than I was expecting, as there were flavors of pumpkin, cinnamon, vanilla, and nutmeg up front, followed by a surprising hop presence. The interplay between sweet, spicy, and bitter was very well done. The finish was dry, and showcased the spices. The body was a little thicker than medium, with a little sticky coating in the mouth. I usually don't go for pumpkin beers, but picked this up based on the recommendation of the store owner, and glad I did.

Gorgeous burnt color and inviting aroma, this is a decent brew for a pumpkin beer. Less of a beer than a baked good, in my opinion. Very sweet, and not suited for serial drinkers or those seeking a more traditional bitter/sweet balance in their beer. Personally felt the flavors of caramel and vanilla overwhelmed other spice notes, and missed the nutty flavor of any pumpkin almost entirely. Not much foreplay with the sweetness here, and was left wanting for a more complex finish.
