12oz Brown bottle with pry-off cap and best by date of"12/05/2014". Poured into a Mason jar glass.

Appearance: Pours a hazy, copper with 1 finger of head that quickly dissipates

Smell: Mostly bread malt with a little pumpkin

Taste: There is pumpkin flavor but it is overshadowed by the malt with little to no spice character

Mouthfeel: Thin and watery

Overall: One thing going for it is the low ABV which some people might like when they want a pumpkin beer. This also might be pleasing to those who complain about spices in pumpkin beer. I found it a little too watery and forgetful. Not terrible, but I won't purchase again.

Good beer, but was a little less smooth than I would have liked. A bit more spices like cinnamon would go a long way, too.

Another 4% Utah beer.

Hazy brown color and a thin tan colored head.

Smells mostly of pumpkin spice but not very strongly. Slight medicinal scent like a band-aid.

Tastes initially of pie crust and spice. Mild pumpkin beer flavor but the lack of body hurts it.

Watery and mildly bitter.

Overall a try it once and forget it type of beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on December 25, 2013.

The color is mostly orange with a lasting white head and a foggy appearance.

The aroma is of vague pumpkin with nutmeg, clove, brown sugar and biscuit.

The body is light to medium.

The taste is rather bland. I do pick up the toasted biscuit and spice character of a typical pumpkin ale but it seems to just sit there with no excitement.
