Draught: This one pours an orangish-gold color. It has a bit of a white head on it. Not much lacing. The aroma is OK. Some pumpkin spices, hint of malt. Not much else. The taste is very similar. Some pumpkin spices, a bit of malts. Rates a "Meh" at best.

2.2/5  rDev -36.8%

Aroma: Nutmeg and ginger are present along with an earthy almost rotting bark-like aroma. Some maltiness present, but not a lot. No hop aroma. Slight fruity esters as it warms. Overall mild aroma for a spiced beer.

Appearance: Gold to light orange in color. Has a fine but large white head. Very good clarity.

Flavor: Initial malt flavor but lacking in sweetness. Quickly turns to a bitter harshness. Has a very thin body and ends with an astringent and metallic finish. Not much spice is tasted beyond those off-putting flavors.

Overall: This beer is not good. To be honest it has the harsh and metallic flavors that I associate with old-style homebrew (before we really understood the need for fresh ingredients and sanitation...) Sj and I had to pour this out after a couple sips. Not a great start from this brewery, but I'd still try another of their beers before boycotting them.

3.39/5  rDev -2.6%

A - dark orange-brown. slightly hazy. head reached just over an inch after first pour. quickly dissipated in about 5 minutes.

S - predominantly pumpkin and malt. also has 'earthy' scent. light spices too.

T - primarily darker malts and pumpkin. though, it left a slightly metallic aftertaste which flattened its potential.

M - lightly carbonated.

O - solid pumpkin brew. pumpkin beers tend to be (1) overly sweet or (2) make up for taste with higher alcohol volume.

drumkin tastes better after it's had a chance to warm slightly.
