look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

I enjoyed this beer from the comfort of my own living room. From the 12oz bottle to a standard pint glass.

Appearance: Pours orange in color with a thick white head that disappeared by the time I turned around from tossing out the bottle.

Smell: Nice aroma right out of the gate. Spices and pumpkin smell dominate with a hint of earthy malts.

Taste: As the smell hinted at this beer tastes of spices and pumpkin. However, the aroma was better than the taste as this is too sweet and watered down for my liking.

Mouth: Very light bodied and bodied and with lots of carbonation.

Drinkability: Too watered down for my liking. Nice aroma, but not much else.

Serving type: bottle

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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Amber colored with a long lasting off white head. Nose is pumpkin, vegetable leaves and vines; sweet cooked sugar, light cinnamon and cooking spices, noble, herbal hops. Taste follows nose with big pumpkin vegetable flavor; a sour tang underneath and some noble hop bitterness. High carbonation and medium thin mouthfeel. Tastes like fall to me.
