look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 1 | feel: 1 | overall: 1.5

Bottle poured into standard pint glass. Only purchased a single as part of a pumpkin variety pack to try many brands.

A: Nice amber color, rich looking beer. Not much of a head to speak of.

S: I honestly didn't smell anything. Not spices, not pumpkin, nothing. Normally, in other beers of this style, I can pick up on heavy clove or at least a nice nutmeg aroma. This beer had absolutely no smell. Not even a typical beer smell.

T: There was very little to speak of in terms of taste. I couldn't taste any spices and only a very faint hint of pumpkin. In all honestly, it tasted like Pumpkin-flavored San Pellegrino. It barely even tasted alcoholic. Very thin, very bland, almost water-like. Only in the aftertaste could I even get a hint of the spice, but I need more than that from a pumpkin beer.

M: The mouthfeel was extremely thin. There was a good bit of carbonation, but behind that was a very flat and thin feel. My tongue felt like it was punching through the carbonation and reaching something like water. On the flipside, it make this a very drinkable beer, but not in the way you'd want it to be.

O: I don't know if I got a bad batch or what, but this honestly did not even taste like a beer. It felt like drinking sparkling water. I'm a huge fan of pumpkin ales and I've tried several varieties, but this was by far the most disappointing offering I've tried to date. I might give it another go to see if it really was just a fluke, but I do so hesitantly. Based on this first taste, I would not recommend this beer to anyone.

look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Deep brassy amber hue with orange highlights, lightly spiced nose with a touch of pumpkin and what smells like unfermented pale malts.

Medium body which thins out on the finish. Clove and nutmeg, touch of cinnamon and vanilla. No true pumpkin taste but thats probably because its not made with this years pumpkins. Tastes like pumpkin beer light. If youre going for a session pumpkin ale make it a long trail pumpkin or a night owl cause this one falls short for being at the same price point.
