Appearance- Nice deep amber with a couple fingers of white head.

Smell- Classic pumpkin spice with clove being the most dominant. Also pickup a good amount of sweetness.

Taste- Great pumpkin pie spices followed by a nice sweet malt and bitter finish. Themspice profile reminds me of Pumking without the pie crust flavor.

Mouthfeel- Medium body with a perfect amount of carbonation.

Overall- Really solid pumpkin beer. Not the best I've ever had but it scratches the pumpkin itch. I only bought a single but I would go back for a 6 pack.

I poured it a little too cold at first so it took some time for the smell and flavors to show themselves. At first it just smelled like a standard macro-brew lager but as it warmed, pumpkin and other spices were noticeable. At first I only got some spices (cinnamon, nutmeg) in the taste but as the temperature of the beer went up, the pumpkin started to come through but it wasn't overly strong.

Overall this was a nice seasonal beer that I would buy again but it isn't going to rank amongst my favorites.

poured into new Belgian Globe.

Appearance: brilliant and clear amber orange bodied beer. Beer is topped with 1 finger of white head. Drops quickly to a ring.

Smell: Sweet and spicy smelling of big cinnamon and nutmeg spice. A touch of pumpkin.

Taste: starts off with spicey cinnamon, nutmeg, all spice and a hint of clove. Pumpkin shows itself in the middle, but fades quickly. The beer finishes with big cinnamon notes and a lingering vetigal pumpkin aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. The spiciness in this beer makes it feel heavier than the beer really is.

Overall: A solid pumpkin beer tyranena! Its good, but Shafly is the best that i have tried so far!

A - orangish copper color without much of a head

S - loads of spices billow out of the glass - nutmeg, cinnamon, and sugary crust.

T - sweet spices from the nose are upfront and give way to some nice caramel malts through the middle. The caramel malts are superseded by some more spices from the nose - cinnamon and nutmeg are most prominent.

M - creamy and full body

D - pretty solid pumpkin ale by Tyranena. This has more spices than anything else...almost like a mini Schlafly pumpkin ale. Been wanting to try this one for a while and glad I got the chance.

12 oz. bottle tried 21 Nov 2011. From our Wisconsin connection R&S, thank you. Served in the Bright Brewing shaker pint.

Small parchment colored head. Medium carbonation. Clear burnt umber color. Aroma is spicy, clove and nutmeg. Starts sweet with a lot of spices, nutmeg, clove, ginger. Spiciness continues throughout. Medium body, ethanol is hidden. Finish and aftertaste are sweet and spicy, very much reminiscent of pumpkin pie. Nutmeg dominates.

A says tastes like potpourri. But then, she doesn't really like pumpkin beers. I thought it was pretty decent.
