Honestly, had I realized this was a pumpkin beer, I wouldn't have ordered it, as I hate pumpkin. But, I thought it was a "Fest" beer, so here goes. Served in straight pint glass. Poured a clean, clear dark mahogany color with about 1/8 inch of very light khaki hued head that had OK retention and lacing.

The aroma was a full-on spice attack, no pumpkin, let alone malt, yeast, or hops, showed through. Same dealio on the tongue, just palate wrecking spices. The body was nicely medium, and had a pleasantly dry finish. Drinkability was non-existent, I had 4-5 ounces, and passed it back across the bar. Overall, a poor example of the style. Admittedly, it's not a style I like, but I'm being as fair as possible here. There are many, much better P-brews out there, drink them, avoid this one.

Poured into pint glass

A- nothing special, small foamy offwhite head. The beer was a amber color with an orange hue.

S- smells like an average pumpkin beer with the typical spices: clove, allspice, cinnamon, ginger, a touch of pumpkin.

T- like the smell, pretty average and nothing out of the ordinary or rememberable. More cinnamon taste than the rest of the spices. I am also picking up an unpleasant artificial plastic-like after taste.

M- Mouthfeel seems right for the style: slightly thick and smooth from the pumpkin and the malts.

O- I have to say I am disappointed with this beer. This is nothing more than an average (maybe even slightly below average) pumpkin ale. Pumpkin, pumpkin pie spices. That's it. Every store in my area has this from $12.99-$13.99 for a 6-pack. That is outrageous! I saw that and automatically thought that the beer must have something special, or maybe it was just damn good. Luckily I only purchased two in a mix-a-six at my local beverage center. This beer should be in the $8.99-$10.99 price range just like the other six-packs of average pumpkin beers right next to it on the shelf. The UFO, Sam Adams, Smuttynose pumpkin ales are just a few that are much better. How a brewery or a store could offer this product at such a price is ridiculous. I will never buy this again. Why pay $14.00 for a six-pack of beer when there are a dozen more representations of the style that are much better and for $4.00-$5.00 less?
