Orange in color with a brown tinted head. Lightly spiced, and sweet aroma. The big and malty flavor holds the spices in check and the body makes this feel like a meal. The smoothness makes me feel like I'm drinking a regular beer. This is very well balanced. One of my two favorites in the pumpkin beer category.

Poured into a nonic glass.

Appearance - Beautiful orange yellow color with perhaps a very slight haze. Fluffy white 2 finger head held for half of the glass! A half finger head for the rest. I was impressed! Above average lacing.

Smell - Very fresh and clean. Mostly a pumpkin fresh fruit smell with a little nut and spice. The smell really gets you interested.

Taste - Impressively smooth! Sweetness balanced with a little tangy nutty spice. Finish is no where near bitter. More on the sweet end. A delicate hop quality.

Mouthfeel - Creamy and soft. Medium to lower carbonation.

Drinkability - Very drinkable because of it's refreshing quality.
But what is the ABV? Can't find it anywhere.

This is the best pumpkin brew I've tried. And I find it very interesting that it's a lager. That explains the rich smooth quality. Very different from a pumpkin ale. Doesn't have all the complexity that you can get with an ale. Instead the quality of the ingredients and the simple character really shines.

I get pumpkin spices, vanilla and a tart ginger. I get the ginger full on in the taste with hints of cinnamon and vanilla on the back end of the taste. The ginger is a great taste but becomes tart at time almost wine tart.

I get some caramel malts in there as well reminiscent of an Oktoberfest taste. Each times I take a sip I can smell the ginger in the nose. It really reminds me of the ginger sauce you find in Japanese restaurants. I'm not getting too much pumpkin just a vegetable pumpkin taste which is always good.

The spices outshine in this one and the ginger really in my opinion shines the most. Its good but just wish it was a bit less tart. It was an interesting beer that'd I'd have again next year at Halloween time no problem.

The aroma of this beer first hits you as a real spicy and sweet beer. Quite the opposite. This beer has a real light mouth feel but the hint of sweetness is just of enough to have one beer per night.

This beer is not too sweet and not too savory this beer can go well with savory foods such as turkey and be a great dessert beer or just to drink around.

Appearance: It pours a hazy copper color with amber hues. On top is about two fingers worth of of white head.

Aroma: A tremendous amount of pumpkin spice way up front. Notes of allspice, clove, cinnamon and even a little bit of a cider aroma. Only a slight breadiness towards the back.

Taste: Spice on top of more spice. Cloves, cinnamon, apple peel a floral hop bite and a nice dry finish. The mouthfeel is a little crisp with a buttery texture.

Notes: It's spiced so well all the way around what a tasty beer. Cheers.

The nice lady at the local liquor store was going to pitch a sixer of this (as it was May), and asked if I wanted it. For free? Sure, give it a try.

Medium foamy head on a cloudy amber. Smelled fruity and floral, didn't pick up too much pumpkin. But I found it in the taste, very nice blend, pumpkin with spices...nutmeg? Allspice? Hint of that floral? All there, and as I said, blended nicely in a smooth, easy to drink beer.

I've had two pumpkin flavored beers (Blue Moon's Harvest Moon the other), and this is far and away the best of the two.
