2.05/5  rDev -29.8%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

This beer pours slightly hazed burnt orange color with practically no head to speak of.

The aroma will smack you in the face from a distance revealing super strong spicing with a hint of pumpkin. Nothing else can poke through this pumpkin pie in a bottle.

The taste if you can imagine would be similar if you took pumpkin flavoring, spices, and tonic water and made some confounded cocktail with it. It is a repeat of the aroma. Bleck!

This is a very light bodied brew with a slick watery finish.

Drinkability suffers greatly with the off-putting amount of spicing used in this beer. Not recommended...don't buy it!

3.31/5  rDev +13.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Sampling now on 2/6/14 though I had this back in 2012. Bottled chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a classic pilsner flute glass.

Pours a amber in color with a 1-finger white foamy head that settles down to nothing really fast. Actually no lacing is seen either. The aroma is light with pumpkin and spices. The taste is a little 'watered' down but you can taste the pumpkin with cinnamon and nutmeg with maybe a slight taste of cloves for the finish. Overall, it was alright.
