Even though I'm a thousand miles from home, the legacy of woodychandler lives on in the trunk of my car. This beer is another from him. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a bronze/orange color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild pumpkin. Taste is pumpkin, malts, subtle spices, smooth and easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall not the most flavorful pumpkin beer out there, but not bad either.

Outstanding pumpkin beer. Done exactly right. Great flavor and you get all the hints of different tastes but it's not like a liquid pumpkin pie. The best pumpkin beer I've had.

Bottle. Solid pumpkin orange brown color with minimal head that quickly dissipated. Smells mildly of pumpkin and pumpkin spicy with bready yeast. Taste is like a low calorie pumpkin pie. Not overly sweet and not overly spicy. Really good effort. Not bitter of course. Ale with pumpkin flavors.

I recently tried three pumpkin beers. This one, Magic Hat Wilhelm Scream, and Southern Tier Pumking. I would rate this one in the middle with Magic Hat the lowest, and Pumking the best. Isle of MaGourdo is a decent pumpkin beer, but nothing spectacular.

I was all around disappointed with this beer considering the quality of beers Due South usually puts out. I will say there was good lacing and head retention, but the flavor was all around bland for a pumpkin beer. Most if not all of the pumpkin/ spice flavor comes in the first second of the beer hitting your pallet. There are definitely light hints of nutmeg and cinnamon, but the taste lingering on the pallet was less reminiscent of a pumpkin beer and more in the realm of an oktoberfest with toast or bread notes. There was little desire to go back for another sip with a slight bitterness in the finish.(this is also coming from a guy who really enjoys IPA's so bitterness in its place is something I really enjoy)

Canned on 8/29/2014 poured into a snifter

Hazy orangey brown in color with one finger of off white to tan head. Great lacing and head retention.
Smells of cinnamon, pound cake, pumpkin, cloves and nutmeg plus more cinammon.
Taste is sweet cake, cinnamon with a hint of booze and pumpkin. Very complex yet tasty and drinkable.
Medium to light carbonation and nice mouth feel.

May be my new favorite pumpkin beer. Lots of cinnamon and just a hint of pumpkin!

I had this one on draft during their Otoberfest festival where they released three different and new beers over a three day period. Pours from the tap a dark amber color with a decent sized white head that is quite foamy and intense. Great pumpkin aromas without being overdone. In my, there are three types of pumpkin beers: There is pumpkin pie, pumpkin cookie, and pumpkin cake. This one falls into the pumpkin cake category. Not too overwhelming but just enough to let you know the style. Not too bready and quite delicious. I didnt know what to expect from the these guys. THis is a new brewery and pumpkin beers is a hard style to nail down but I think they did a pretty damn good job. I even purchased some beer in bottles to go!
