look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: The beer is clear dark reddish amber in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high light beige colored head that died down but consistently left a short head covering the surface and lots of lacy rings of bubbles down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of cinnamon are present in the nose along with hints of nutmeg.
T: Like the smell, cinnamon stands out in the taste from start to finish, which also has notes of nutmeg and hints of pumpkins. The nutmeg is most noticeable towards the back end of the taste. No sweetness is present.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is a nice beer if you like cinnamon but it doesn't have much in the way of having pumpkin aromas and flavors.

Pours a hazy super dark orange-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of earthy malt and pumpkin pie spice aromas. Taste is much the same with dirt and pumpkin pie spice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer with a solid pumpkin pie spice aroma but there is an odd dirt-like flavor that I am not too fond of.

Not a big fan of pumpkin beers but this was pretty tasty.
Just enough spices and pumpkins to balance out a nice malt bill.

16 ounce pint - $6.50 at Taco Mac in Crabapple, Georgia.

Appearance: Displays an obscured, medium brown body with a slim, scant, ivory-hued head leaving a light lace.

Smell: Slightly vegetal pumpkin tone, some ineffusive malt notes of cold toast and ashen roast with a dusting of earthy spices.

Taste: Sugar-encrusted pumpkin stands atop toasty, lightly roasty malts and a liberal dosage of Autumntime spices, chiefly cinnamon and nutmeg. The initial pumpkin flavor quickly dissipates and vanishes from the taste. Minimally herbal hops with a light bitterness. Dry, spicy, thinning finish with the sustained toasty, roasty malts.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Far less than exemplary, barely average really, with little to support a return visitation. Nowadays, there are innumerable better pumpkin beers.

I like the color scheme and artwork on this can, but I have to say I don't get the Fall Hornin' name. I don't understand what that means. But whatever, this beer pours really dark brown with a nice head. A lot of pumpkins don't really get a lot of suds but this one does. Aroma is malty and herbal, spiced, and has another buttery element, which really comes through in the flavor. As with a lot of other pumpkins, I don't get much pumpkin, mostly spice. Has a nice mouthfeel, a lot lighter than I expected with how dark it is in color, and good carbonation. I do like this beer, and think it's a nice take on the style.
