Ok this isn't the best Pumpkin brew on the market, and this is a conglomerate's beer, but this is better than what the beer snobs, I consider myself one of them, are saying here. The scent is straight up nice punkin pie.

Bernie Mac's punkin pie joke. Know it? Bernie, does pussy really taste like punkin pie? How dare you, you know that I ain't ever ate no punkin pie! ... Yeah! 'do dodo do dumdum dadum'

I tried this beer & even bought a 2nd 12 pack. We lack punkin beers in this region. This was a smooth and nice subtle punkin ale. I wish punkin ales were available all year round. Punkin is wonderful flavor for beers. There isn't much spice or anything just a nice punkin undertone to add smoothness, a little sweetness and a hint of punkin to the ale flavors. Also i like the nice orangey color.

Try this if you live in a baron punkin beer zone! This is an alright punkin brew. 3.5 - 4 stars rating, baby. One night I chilled my down to really cold in the freezer. That was nice. This would actually be a good summer refreshing thirst quencher.

I recommend a listen of Eric Dolphy's - Iron Man - from his lp entitled Illinois Concert to go with this punkin ale.

[Best served in a Lager glass]

The pour was a hazy dark amber with an average sized (1-2 finger) creamy white head that lasted a little while and produced excellent lacing that stuck to the glass rather nicely.

The aroma was very weak of a mild crystal malt and a moldy yeast with a very light hint of nutmeg and pumpkin.

It tasted bitter and acidic with just an ever so light hint of nutmeg in the beginning and finished about the same with a harsh bite of pumpkin rind at the end. The flavor lasted a long time letting the taste of rind hang around way to long.

Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and dry in texture with a very lively carbonation

Overall this did not really even taste like a Pumpkin Ale which was rather disappointing.
