1.3/5 rDev -61.1%
clear burnt amber hue with a good sized sticky off white head. smells of pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice, a little light.
light on body and flavor with brisk effervescence. Honestly tastes like water with cinnamon and nutmeg in it with an Oliver twist sized portion of pumpkin. Not good. The only respectable thing about this beer is that you can't detect the 6% abv despite how thin the flavors are.

The first thing that hit my mouth was a tin or metallic taste that lingered and I could not shake. I love a good pumpkin but this beer had nothing that reminds me of a pumpkin. No taste, smell or gravity to boot up in my mouth. I'm hoping I got a bad pour but as it stands I can't touch this beer again. I don't like drinking metal.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass
A- pours a crystal clear orange with a two finger white head. Looks gorgeous, off to a great start here
S- slight bit of cinnamon and pumpkin, and nothing else. Very weak aroma
T- incredibly bland. Slight hints of pumpkin, nutmeg, and cinnamon, and by slight, I mean *slight*
M- the body of this one is actually kind of thick...not nearly as thin as I expected from past experience with pumpkin beers
O- swing and a miss. I'm not a huge fan of pumpkin beers to begin with, but this one is so unbelievably boring

Pours a nice amber and the initial aromas make this brew seem very promising. Unfortunately, it all goes downhill after the first sip! No flavor whatsoever. No pumpkin taste. No spices. Nothing! very, very dissapointing pumpkin beer. Quite honestly, the worst pumpkin beer I've had to this point.

Poured on tap at Walker's Coffee & Pub in Athens, GA on 9/11/12
Appearance: Pours a clear orange/copper tint with a steady head that yields some good lacing.
Smell: Some pumpkin pie spice (cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, cloves), but very mild overall. Not much actual pumpkin scent going on here.
Taste: Wow. First impression is a tin can. The other reviewers are spot on here. As it fades, it leaves a lingering pumpkin taste, but this is clearly poorly-canned pumpkin pulp, not the real stuff or even the "good" canned stuff. The slight spice notes come through in the immediate fading of the dominant tin flavor, but overall, the metallic flavors dominate. It's not overly flavorful at all.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied, it leaves a light coating on the tongue that fades relatively quickly. Not overly impressive, but better than water, I suppose.
Overall: I was not impressed with this brew. It's got a decent smell (though it's faint) and leaves a remarkable lacing on the glass. Other than that, it's a disappointment - not much flavor, but what's there is dominated by a metallic foretaste that fades (slowly) to a slight pumpkin pie spice and then a very faint aftertaste of poor-quality canned pumpkin. I wouldn't seek this one out again.

A below-average pumpkin ale, with very little taste. Nothing notable here, especially with a 6% alcohol content (surprising for a malt).
The appearance is mildly desirable, but the "pumpkiny" smell is nearly nonexistent.
Overall, not a beer I would recommend to others.

sampled during an impromptu pumpkin tasting. pours a pale amber hue, small head with slight retention. scent is of light nutmeg and pumpkin. taste is similar but not quite as interesting. body fells light and watery. not a whole lot of character in this one. would not buy again.

Pours a slight hazy bronze color with a very small off white head.
Aroma is a decent dose of nutmeg, clove, cinnamon and various pumpkin spices.
Taste however, is a bit odd. Not really picking up too many of the flavors i sensed in the aroma. It's a bit watery and any flavor just kinda gets lost in the mix. Nothing really exciting.
Not much to be said about the palate. A little rough on the palate, watery. Odd aftertaste. Didn't really enjoy this pumpkin ale.
