While this isn't the worlds best pumpkin beer it's a good "go to" pumpkin beer. A nice fall session beer.

This is an amber colored ale with a slight head an nice clarity. The aroma is of pumpkin spice and a touch of malt. The flavor is balanced, with some malt backbone. Spice is pleasant and not overpowering. A bit more sweetness could help the beer, although I'm happy with the restrained spice. The body is medium-full, and the finish is more subtle than I expected. Not outstanding, but good.

Served in a pint glass.

Appearance: Light transparent amber with medium bubbles on the body, straight white head that rose to roughly one figer's length.

Smell: bland nutmeg scent, comes and goes.

Taste: Strong pumpkin feel with light hit of cinnamon, light spiciness. Not anything crazy, but delivers.

Mouth: Medium carbonation. Smooth barely sticky though.

Overall: not bad, picked it just to have something different but in actuality it's not. I would say grab it if you need a pumpkin beer but wait if you want something better. Grab a glass and drink up....Salud!

12oz bottle poured in a pint glass. The beer is a clear orange/amber color with a white head that thins to a ring. The aroma is nutmeg and cinnamon. The taste is a lightly spiced pumpkin pie flavor. Medium bodied and very easy to drink. This beer is enjoyable and sessionable as the spices are not overpowering in any way.

Has almost no nose at all, hint of spice only. Pours deep amber, headless. Taste: Pumpkin?? This is more a nutmeg cinnamon ale with possible tea flavors. It might have been walked by a bale of hops, but it does not seem there is any in this! It is mild, almost bland. Take Coor's Light and add spices and you might have this. In fact, do that if you can't find this in your area!
My wife just took a sip and liked it! She who loves Miller Light!! Overall, run of the mill; hard to believe from same brewer of the magnificent Celtic Ale!

The beer is an orangey amber color with a wispy white head that settled into a small ring. Nothing too exciting.

The aroma is of an amber base malt. Some lemon and tea notes. The pumpkin/pumpkin spice is light. Cinnamon and nutmeg standout, perhaps some clove. Kind of a sour aroma from the base beer.

The taste has a nice spice profile. Again, cinnamon and nutmeg standout. There is a hint of brown sugar and vanilla. Some pumpkin flesh flavors. The malt brings a lemony sour aspect to the flavor, which drys up the beer and offsets the sweetness. I'd prefer for the sweetness to come out just a little more.

Moderate feel with tingley carbonation. Starts off sweet on the palate but quickly turns dry and slightly sour.

An average pumpkin ale. The spice was nice but it is overpowered by the amber malt. I would like to see it a notch smoother and sweeter.
