4.15/5  rDev +12.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Hazy orange with a light tan head. Solid lacing.

Aroma: Spice forward. I'm not the best at picking these out maybe allspice, clove, pumpkin spice, touch of cinnamon possibly. Pumpkin aroma in the back as well.

Flavor: Clovey spice, light pumpkin. Some bready/toasty malt character is able to come through as well.

Mouthfeel: I have to give a big nod to Terrapin for the feel of this beer. Still refreshing, light bodied and a Marzen at heart. Makes it entirely more drinkable that some of the more popular pumpkin brews.

Overall: One of the few pumpkin's I can actually stomach this time of the year, and my go to.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours medium amber color with little head abd no lacing.

Smells like liquid 'Big Red' chewing gum. Lots of cinnamon and pumpkin spice.

Taste is mild pumpkin spice. Moderate bitterness.

Mouthfeel is o.k. with mild carbonation.

Overall this was pretty nice. Would be good after a heaping plate of turkey and dressing.

4.28/5  rDev +16.3%
look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.

S - Pumpkin pie spice but not quite as sweet. Almost potpourri like. A hint of raisins at room temp.

A - Clear, deep orange/brown sunburst with minimal head.

T - Spicy, pumpkin pie spices. Low hop bitterness. Malt flavor is a combination of biscuit malts and light caramel sweetness. With warmth, a cinnamon, brown sugar, raisin-like flavor emerges. Finishes semi-sweet.

M - Medium carbonation. Moderate body.

O - A delicious seasonal beer. An interesting blend of pumpkin ale and Oktoberfest styles. Terrapin absolutely nailed the level of spice for my taste. I don't know exactly what this beer is, but I don't care. I'll definitely have again.
