A- very lager like. golden colored body with very active visible carbonation and a 1cm quickly falling white colored head that leaves no lacing behind.

S- pumpkin bread, yeast, cinnamon, and some grainy malts.

T- similar to a pumpkin pie. couldnt taste any of the yeast that i thought i could smell

M- light bodied with a high level of carbonation. probably too much.

D- this just isnt for me. if you love pumpkin pie, and hate beer, this one is just about right for you. the bottle was pretty hard for me to finish, and im glad this one was left at my place rather than something i bought.

Pours a clear golden color with little head that dissipates quickly. No lacing. A spicy pumpkin aroma, along with the cleanliness of a lager. Clearly a pumpkin ale, but it is a weaker version than I am used to and enjoy. Average carbonation with a strong pumpkin flavor. The flavor is definitely not overpowering and instead is rather weak. Overall a smooth beer but weaker than I would normally expect for a good pumpkin.

Pours light orange with a thin head that doesn't stick at all. Smells like pumpkin pie, fruity and spiced. Spices are prominent in the taste - cloves are notable - and pumpkin is matched to this. As with most KBC beers, there is a sweet flavor that tastes a bit odd, though it is very faint in this one. Regular beer flavors, malt and hops, are barely noticeable. Mouthfeel features moderate carbonation which enhanced the spice flavors, but also has an unpleasant sticky feeling as it warms up. Fairly light all around, decent drinkability, though not something to drink slowly as it has some less pleasant notes that become more apparent closer to room temperature.

A-Pours clear dark golden color with a thin, fizzy off white head. No lacing.

S-Kind of weird. Smells like the water after you boil root vegetables, nutmeg, the inside of a dentist's office. Something artificial in here.

T/M-An average kolsch (or some kind of lighter german ale) with a burst of cinnamon and nutmeg mid-palate. There's a hint of earthiness, suggesting there may be some actual pumpkin in this. However, it's not enough to make the beer interesting. Light bodied and crisp, with a cinnamon/nutmeg finish.

O-An average, inoffensive pumpkin ale. I'll take it over Buffalo Bill's.
