I just poured my first bottle of this and the smell was wonderful. My taste buds were looking forward to enjoying what my nose already had. Boy, something wrong here! It has a nice mouthfeel but that's about where things go south. Sour mash like taste with a cinnamon follow. Almost like this batch had too much nutmeg or the bottle was bad. Opened a second one with the same results. Really sour with an almost harsh nutmeg aftertaste. I really don't think I'll buy this one again after drinking so many other pumpkin beers this fall that have proved far more enjoyable than this.

There are three types of pumpkin beer: spice heavy, gourd heavy, and balanced.
This is definitely on the spice-heavy end of things.
Cinnamon first, followed by a hint of nutmeg and clove. You do get a hint of squash/gourd at the end.
I tend to to be more "punkin' " centric.
A good pumpkin beer, but still inferior to Southern Tier's sweeter Pumking.
