Pours to a nutty orange color with a white head that leaves a nice lacing on the glass. Looks really appetizing.

Smells very nice. It's got an underlying pumpkin scent with some spices that pinch a little on first sniff.

Tastes good, but a little too bitter on the back end. The spices taste a bit burnt. But overall, it's just the right amount of sweetness up front, and there's a faint hint of pumpkin that's good.

The body is a bit weak. The aftertaste leaves something to be desired too.

This is an above average pumpkin. I enjoyed it and would have it again. Hopefully next year they work out the burnt spice issue.

Poured a dark copper hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured moderate caramel, spice and a bit of rindiness.

The taste consisted of a smooth crystal malt with moderate spice and a residual pumpkin flesh.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style.

Overall a tasty pumpkin ale.

It is that time of year again, and I chase the seasonal pumpkin beer. This one is respectable, but not outstanding. Spicy smell...pie spice,neither some pumpkin scents as well. There is a little malt underneath, but the spice is dominant. The taste is semi-sweet. It has a medium heft, with a lingering pumpkin finish. Some vegetal favors. Solid, but not as intense as I'd prefer.

Pours a dark amber with a thin white head. Doesn't have too much aroma. A bit of pumpkin spice: ginger, allspice, nutmeg, cinnamon. Tastes dry and spicy. Not a lot of malt backbone, but a little toastiness. Finishes bone dry with spice notes and a mild bitterness.

Overall, an easy drinking pumpkin beer that's heavy on the spice and finishes bone dry. Nothing spectacular, but easy drinking.
