3.39/5 rDev +3.4%
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

3.2/5 rDev -2.4%
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.
