I tried this at Quencher's Saloon in Chicago. 12oz brown bottle for $4. The bartender said it's a pumpkin beer without any pumpkin in it. The website and bottle label say the same thing. Doesn't seem to make much sense, but we shall see.

The beer poured a hazy copper/orange color but it didn't produce any head - just a thin white rim that faded in about 10 seconds. Despite the lack of head it still left a decent amount of lacing.

It has the smell of all the pumpkin pie spices - just no pumpkin. Cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice aroma and not much else. Actually smells pretty good.

Tastes like drinking carbonated water with those 3 spices in it, plus a touch of noticeable alcohol. There is a slight bitterness in the finish. I didn't care for it.

Thin mouthfeel with medium carbonation.

I don't know if even the addition of pumpkin could have saved this one. It was bad on so many levels.
