Burnt honey gold pour with dense 2-finger cream head. Good retention and fine strands of lace.

Raw pumpkin and cinnamon jump off the top of the glass. Light spice, but mainly pumpkin.

Taste is a bit lighter than expected, but good. Light pie spice, raw pumpkin underneath that, and a finish with cinnamon. Finish leaves a little to be desired, a little too sour.

Feel is refreshingly light.

Overall, worth a shot if this style appeals.

I tried this beer at a Pumpkin beer night at Pizza Paradiso in Georgetown, DC along with other pumpkin beers.

A: The beer amber in color with a small head and light lacing.

S: Smelt like pumpkin pie (and not in an overpowering way) there was a balance of pumpkin, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg.

T: More subtle then the smell; A light malt taste on the front and some pumpkin on the back.

M: did not have much of a body feel.

O: This was a good pumpkin beer, but I don’t know if it was one of my favorites.

Thanks Alucard4 for sharing

Look: Amber in color and translucent. 1/4 inch head and no retention

Smell: Very little nose here but there is a bit of all spice cinnamon and pumpkin very weak

Taste: Copious amounts of pumpkin to the point where it is too much

Mouthfeel: Thin and mildly carbonated

Overall: Not a fan of this one much like most pumpkin beers but this one is just too much

A: A medium to light copper body. Decent head and lacing.

S: Smells of both pumpkin and spices. A little too sweet for my liking. Some rustic grains also come through.

T: The actual pumpkin characteristics are diminished here. Upfront there's a brash maltiness followed by some nice pumpkin pie spices like cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. The spice hangs around for the aftertaste but is accompanied by a crappy adjunct quality that reminds me of 9.99 30 packs. I wonder if the pumpkin is responsible.

M: Thin and astringent.

An ok pumpkin beer. Probably one I'll forget about.
