A big thanks to the creator of the canquest, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a deep brown color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of pumpkin, a bit of spice. Taste is not as strong as the smell, some pumpkin, malts, a bit of spice, very drinkable. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a pretty good beer.

A perfectly serviceable pumpkin beer. Porterish, brownish, and easy to drink with muted but present pie spices but perhaps no real silkiness from any real pumpkin. Still, it hits the spot without filling you up too much, is a bit different from some of the other pumpkin beers, and is conveniently in cans. I've bought more than one sixer and enjoyed it.

12oz bottle into snifter.
A: Pours an extremely dark mahogany red with a couple fingers of light brown head that faded into a bubbly collar. A complex network of lace was left down the glass.
S: Strong pumpkin mixed with spices. Gingerbread, pumpkin bread, clove and cinnamon.
T: Follows the nose with a liquid pumpkin bread taste. Fresh pumpkin, clove and ginger dominate with cinnamon, cardamom, brown sugar and citrus zest poking through. The finish is full of doughy yeast and biscuit malt which adds to the pumpkin bread quality. Aftertaste is spicy and sweet with a hint of caramel.
M: Medium body, normal even carbonation, slick, greasy and smooth mouthfeel. Drinks very well.
O: Surprisingly good. Not sickly sweet or synthetic. One of the better pumpkin beers I've had.

Served in a pin glass.
Appearance: Dark brown color with heavy bubbles o the body...off-white head with a slight orange tint to it rising to just under a finger's length.
Smell: Light pumpkin squash and light nutmeg, seriously just a touch.
Taste: Of course it tastes like pumpkin but comes off bitter and feels a bit more like a amber mixed with spoonful of light nutmeg. A slight sweet in the beginning but dissipates quickly.
Mouth: Carbonation is definitely medium to heavy. Not really that sticky if you ask me. Finish has feel of slight roasted hops.
Overall: Not a bad beer, very easy to drink but no where near the top of the food chain when it comes to pumpkin beers. It's good to have for the moment and definitely still better than some other beers that try "harder". Salud!
