look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

12oz bottle from the 2013 seasonal release poured into a standard pint glass.

Pours a clear rusty orange. Very little lacing and a quickly disappearing white head.

Nutmeg and cinnamon in up front in the nose, not much for pumpkin in the aroma.

One thing that makes this pumpkin stand out is the notice yeast strain taste that underlies the spies. Definitely more of a spicy pumpkin beer, I do much get much for the sweet or full pumpkin taste found in other beers.

Very dry mouthfeel - not much to it really. Flavors fade fast.

Average pumpkin beer - I don't think I would purchase this again.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75

12oz bottle from the 2013 seasonal release. Poured into a Founders snifter today, 10/2/2013.

Pours a clear amber hue, perhaps more of a copper hue in the right lighting. Not much of a head, which is white and disappears into almost nothing immediately. No lacing either.

Lots of spices (especially nutmeg) in the nose and not much else.. maybe a little bit of pumpkin filling. No yeast or malt sweetness anywhere.

Tastes similar to the nose, still there is a decent caramel sweetness that underlies the pumpkin and nutmeg. A little bit of that different spice flavour that I recognize from most other lagers, which I assume is the lager yeast's contribution.

Typical lager mouthfeel, a bit thin but that's about right. I think this beer is undercarbonated though.. A bit sticky and dry. Nothing special. Kind of refreshing, but at the same time the spice flavour profile kind of makes this a hard one to finish for me.

This is a fairly decent pumpkin beer, no more no less. I wouldn't buy this again.
