Bottle > Pint Glass
A - Pours a hazy amber color, half a finger of thin fizzy head, no lacing.
S - Smell isnt too appeasing to me, some burnt caramel, roasted hazelnut, tart pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg.
T - Taste has some nice roasty kind of pumpkin flavor to it, then gets warmed up with some spice, and fades on the end to a dark floral and semi tart kinda taste.
M - More on the bitter side, kinda chalky too.
O - I really didnt care for this a whole lot, its more of a roasty kind of pumpkin brown ale, but its not the worst.

3.68/5  rDev -11.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: Orangish copper hue with a steady one-inch head--it fades eventually; not too much lacing

S: Lots of pumpkin, cloves, and other spices--nutmeg, allspice, etc.--but the cloves and pumpkins are the stars; there is some toasted malt presence on the back side, which eventually comes to the forefront

T: Pumpkin and spice aren't over-powering but they are there; I wish there was a stronger bready malt base--pretty pumpkin forward and yet somewhat simple

F: A touch thin on the back end with some creaminess up front that does kind of make up for it

O: A pleasant, straight-forward pumpkin beer; decent option though there are better options out there--but considering the price point, this will work

A - Poured out a clear, orange/burgundy color with a small, off-white, bubbly head of foam. It left little to no lace.

S - It smelled of nutmeg, cinnamon and pumpkin. Pretty standard for the style but pretty good.

T - This has a good pumpkin flavor. You can tell they use real pumpkins. The spices were just right. Nice nutmeg and cinnamon flavors.

M - It was crisp and smooth. A light to medium-bodied ale

D - This is a pretty good pumpkin ale. I found it much better than the Whole Hog IPA.

Excellent ale. True to its title. Fitting for a great Fall beverage.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tulip glass. Murky orange-copper color with a small head that disappates very quickly. Aroma consists of the typical pumpkin pie spices. The flavor is not bad but the spices are very prominent. Mouthfeel is way too thin and watery. Very underwhelming pumpkin beer. There are many better versions out there.

Pours a cloudy dark orange with a quickly fading white head. Aroma of sweet pumpkin pie spices, nutmeg, some cinnamon notes. Taste is sweet pumpkin spices, nutmeg with some malt and mild hops bitterness. A medium body with good carbonation. Has sweet pumpkin pie spice and nutmeg flavor, with some moderate hops bitterness on the end for balance. Overall has some back bone and flavor for a pumpkin ale, a good brew.
