3.26/5  rDev -0.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: orange and festive looking, thin white head, great clarity

Aroma: pumpkin, nutmeg, graham cracker, cinnamon, crisp

Taste: pumpkin flavor with finishing spice and a mildly crisp finish. A graham cracker like flavor in the malt which is nice, but not fantastic. Smooth and easy drinking

Mouthfeel: medium body, medium carbonation, crisp

Overall: A good pumpkin ale that has a little lighter bodied than others in the style, but also a little less flavor. Good for sessioning, but only because it is not overpowering or particularly alcoholic

Serving type: bottle

3.39/5  rDev +3.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A- pours a bright and clear copper color with a small foamy white head that reduces quickly, leaving just a bit to float on the top

S- typical pumpkin spice aromas of cinnamon and clove, seems like there's some extra sweetness on the aroma, almost tart cherry-like, banana candy

T- pumpkin flavors are quite subtle, a malty sweetness kicks in mid-palate bringing some fruity notes, toasted malt with some cinnamon on the finish

M- medium-light body with medium prickly carbonation, foamy mouthfeel and finish

O- middle of the road for the style, but good drinkability

Virginia

3.2/5  rDev -2.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

A: Crystal clear, rich golden color. Thin, white head with little retention or lacing.

S: Crystal malts, cinnamon, cloves, allspice. It does have a slightly vegetal smell. Also a metallic undertone that is not overly pleasant.

T: Sweet malts, slightly grassy. Some slight spice in the way of cinnamon and cloves. No hint of pumpkin in the flavor at all. The flavor in general falls a little flat.

M: Moderate body, slightly sticky, with a lot of carbonation.

O: This is a very "meh" beer. I expected a bit more from Devil's Backbone, but they have proven, once again, that a really outstanding pumpkin beer is very hard to execute. Drinkable, nice in the fall around a fire, but not really a great beer in any sense.
