Looks kind of hazed deep orange copper hue with a bright white head large bubbles formed. Fine speckled lacing lines the sides of the glass.

Aroma strong perfume note cinnamon sticks and all spice, super spiced in a bad way. Not much in the way of pumpkin going on here.

Flavor has a paint thinner like harshness going on, bitter lingering spice notes coats the palate completely quite the miserable beer experience. No signs of pumpkin just harsh medicinal lingering fusel alcohol and only 6.3% abv.

Mouthfeel is thin textured over carbonated pretty much horrible stuff. Lingering harshness from the harsh alcohol and perfume like spice or potpourri combo puts over the edge into one of the harshest pumpkin ales I’ve ever tasted.

Overall I’m into the style on a seasonal basis not something I would ever typically reach for especially this novelty line called Horny Goat brewed in Stevens Point, WI…just terrible.

2.9/5  rDev -11.9%

12 oz. bottle poured into SA Perfect Pint glass
A- Pours a thin, maybe .5 finger head, that completely dissipates except for ring on outside, light hazy amber in color, no lacing, barely existent carbonation
S- Mostly pumpkin pie spice, whats there isn't too bad
T- Light pumpkin flavor, some pie spice, mostly cinnamon, sweet and smooth but pretty thin
M- Pretty thin and crisp on the tongue, more carbonation than I thought from looking at it
O- There are many pumpkin ales out there that are much better, but it is one of the better Horny Goat offerings in my opinion. Looking for a light easy-drinking pumpkin beer that doesn't overwhelm you with spices then try this one

LOOK: Pours a hazed bright copper color. White head forms and has some decent staying power to it. Leaves behind some spotty lacing.

SMELL: Pumpkin pie aroma of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and cardamom.

TASTE: Good gourd! Mild vegetative pumpkin notes, light pumpkin pie filling, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. There is an earthy, peppery quality to the spices, which are fairly strong.

FEEL: Medium bodied, fairly crisp, wet spice finish, thinner.

OVERALL: An average pumpkin ale, at an affordable price. Sure, it's a little heavy on the spices, a bit thin in a few other categories, but agreeable enough to be sampled off to friends. I had to try it, I just had to and it was alright I guess.
