A lot of people came into my job looking for this after we sold our two cases so I figured id give it a try. Pours a nice amber/orange color with a very faint pumpkin scent and a slight "beer" scent. Decent sized head with decent retention.
Unfortunately the beer didn't live up to the build up. Nice thing carbonated mouth feel that goes down easy but not much else. Slight traces of pumpkin, allspice, and cinnamon, but not much. All these flavors quickly dissipate however when you swallow and a very moderate hop presence makes itself known. More like a beer with a slight pumpkin flavor than a pumpkin ale.
not what I want when I want pumpkin ales

well, it's better than bill's pumpkin ale, but i just do not understand the pumpkin ale thing. i don't like pumpkin pie, and it is much worse in a beer. a few of my buddies loved this, so i gave it a try. it was a big mistake. again, it is better than the other pumpkin i have had, but it is still just not right to me

Appearance Dark amber color with creamy off-white head.
Aroma Huge Cinnamon smell with a hint of clove.
Palate Smooth thin mouth feel.
Flavor Tastes like it smells. Smooth and clean taste upfront that leads into an overwhelming cinnamon and clove aftertaste.
Final thoughts Not much in the way of pumpkin pie flavor. It should be renamed Cinnamon Ale because it totally dominates the flavor. To me this was a very disappointing experience.

This beer looked and smelled ok...sort of a murky wheat beer look but orange and smelled malty and some spice but no cinnamon or pumpkin smells at all. Taste was really bad. Metallic tasting mess with lingering bitter finish. No pumpkin flavor at all. Overall I'm guessing I got a bad 6-pack because others sampled it and all thought it was bad tasting.

Poured into a perfect pint.
4.0 A: Clear light orange color. One and a half fingers of frothy/creamy white head. Retention is about average and a good sized ring of lacing is left.
2.5 S: Quite tame and somewhat bland. Mild pumpkin and spices - cinnamon, cardamon, and nutmeg. Not really any allspice, which I am a huge fan of. Moderate caramel maltiness. Lacking depth of aroma.
1.5 T: The taste is like the nose, but devoid of flavor completely instead of just deficient. There's barely any flavor of any kind. The pumpkin and spices that are there seem watered down, which is probably worse than if they weren't present at all. Aside from the pumpkin elements, there is just a touch of crystal maltiness and nothing else.
2.5 M: Light to lighter medium body. Probably a bit too much carbonation and it's somewhat of a bity kind. Lacking creaminess.
1.5 D: This was tough to drink following the DFH Punkin' that I had a few hours prior. Normally bland beers are easy enough to drink and you don't really mind drinking them. However, the watered down vibe this has going makes it a displeasure to drink. Avoid.
