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.

Not a bad pumpkin beer, but like some others it just wasn't balanced. Too much on the sweet.

My first pumpkin ale in a few years and I wasn't terribly impressed. Good strong nutmeg and cinnamon aromas and flavours, but a lot of spice and not enough pumpkin. Good amber colour, but a bit thin for a beer with so much flavour.
