look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Pours out to a hazy amber-orange with a small, off-white head.

The smell is really good. I can pick out the pumpkin for sure, and it smells a bit like prunes as well.

The taste is very malty. The hops don't show through at all; instead the malty taste persists throughout. The finish is rather dragged out, but it's quite pleasant.

The mouthfeel is a bit strange. The malty taste just stays in the mouth without finishing cleanly. There is not much carbonation in this beer, but it works here. It's a bit thin, however.

The drinkability is only average on this one, since the malts should finish cleanly, but this one just doesn't. I love the malty aftertaste, but I don't want it to be there 10 minutes later.

Not a bad beer overall. If I'm feeling like I want a malty beer, I will definitely get this one again.

3.31/5  rDev +13.7%
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.
