This beer was a fantastic full bodied pumpkin flavored and spiced beer. The flavors are not too overwhelming, but compliment the beer in a fantastic way. Cisco Brewery makes a great select of beers include Grey Lady and Whale's Tale Pale Ale. I wish Cisco Brewery made kegs.

22oz bottle served in a glass beer mug.
Clear amber color with an off-white head that stayed as a layer and left good lacing.
Nutmeg and other spices fill the nose, it smells like autumn.
Taste is excellent, the blend of spices works well with a solid roasted malt flavor in the background, the best tatsing 'fall beer' I have ever had.
Medium bodied with a smooth feel.
Excellent, I want more!

12oz bottle poured into an imperial pint glass.
A - Pours a nice, fall burnt orange color. Heavy pour produces some head that fades very quickly. No lacing whatsoever.
S - Cinnamon scent jumps out complemented by some nutmeg and floral notes. Very appealing.
T - Taste doesn't disappoint. Cinnamon and nutmeg up front followed by the pumpkin. Slight bite at the end that doesn't overwhelm the flavors. Great balance here.
M - Medium mouthfeel, very smooth.
O - An excellent pumpkin ale. Jumps into my top 5, possibly top 3.

22 oz. bottle with a cool little Pumpkin-man wearing a Cisco shirt on the label. "Brewed with Nantucket pumpkins" printed on the bottom of the label.
Pours a nice auburn color, darker than most pumpkin ales I've had. Big foamy tan head, settling very slowly into a nice layer atop the beer, lots of sticky lacing in the glass. Lots of pumpkin pie spice in the nose, doughy, and some full-on meaty pumpkin flesh aroma. This is the goods! Lots of nutmeg and spice flavors, pumpkin pie (crust included!), and actually more robust and bitter than overly-sweet. Delicious! Mouthfeel seems spot-on for the style, on the heavier end of medium-bodied, lingering spice and bitterness. I must have more!!!! Likely the finest pumpkin ale I've ever had.

Appearance - Deep orange almost amber color. Decent beige colored head that dissipates quickly. Very clear. Beautiful looking beer.
Smell - Nice spicy and floral aroma, not pumpkin pie but autumn invoking. Very inviting.
Taste - Absolutely delicious, earthy flavors, pumpkin with a light spice. Nice malt and very little bitterness, but not sweet. Very well balanced.
Mouthfeel - Great carbonation, medium body.
Drinkability - Very drinkable, and a very good beer. If my wallet agreed I would have many more.

Silly label. 12oz
pours into my pint glass a handsome amber brown.
good head, decent retention. Lace is good.
smells of spices, cinnamon...a bit hop forward... nice
tastes of pumpkin, spice... a really nice hoppy feel to it. More so than most other pumpkin ales I have tried.
Overall, this beer took me by surprise. It totally impressed me. I will drink it again.

Poured a deep amber hue with a half finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.
The smell featured a sweet fleshy pumpkin with highlights of spicy cinammon and nutmeg.
The taste consisted of a strong pumpkin flesh flavor - moreso than most pumpkin ales. Strong spicy strains of cinammon and nutmeg were accompanied by a soft caramel malt.
The mouthfeel was full.
Overall a very good pumpkin ale. Seems that there really was an emphasis on actual pumpkin flavor here. I only wish I had more.

Appearance: Pours a clear pumpkin color with a thick head that leaves a nice pattern of lace
Smell: Pumpkin and a nutty, toasted pumpkin seed element; subtle pie spicing
Taste: Opens with pumpkin and toasted pumpkin seed flavors which are joined, mid-palate, by the deft addition of cinnamon and hops; the finish is a nice balance of all the elements
Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation
Overall: Really enjoyed the balance in this beer; not the pumpkin-iest, not the pumpkin pie spice-iest but impressively drinkable; like the subtle spicing and the hop addition, well
Thanks, Bendurgin, for the opportunity

a - poured a one finger thick, creamy eggshell-colored head into a tulip glass that left a thin ring throughout. the body was a bright amber color.
s - a hint of cinnamon and spice but it was very understated. pumpkin comes through very well.
t - very much the same as the aroma.
m - crisp and medium.
o - this is what a pumpkin beer should be. i'm not a fan of ones that dominate with spices and don't let pumpkin flavor and aroma come through. this is very balanced and drinkable.

This is an awesome pumpkin beer. Appearance is a bit darker than most and the pumpkin flavor is very understated, which I prefer to the pumpkin-pie-in-your-face varieties. After a few sips I almost forgot I was drinking a pumpkin ale, it tastes more like a pale ale with a nice hop character and dry finish. But as the hops fade a lingering pumpkin aftertaste surfaces until the next sip. First time I've had this brew but it's quickly become one of my favorites.
