Appearance: Hazy brown with very little head that leaves immediately. It dissapeared so fast I don't remember the color of the head.

Smell: Spices. Maybe mild corriander, nutmeg, cloves.

Taste: At first a really good pumpkin taste not noticed in the smell, but quickly is overtaken by crappy spices that ruin everything.

I love pumpkin pie, but this beer can cause someone to hate pumpkin pie because it sucks horse ass so bad.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

This brew pours a copper color with a thin head which dissipates quickly and little lacing. Low carbonation.

The smell is has some pumpkin and spices in it; possibly cardamom and allspice. Caramel malts and brown sugar.

The taste is light on both the pumpkin and the spices. Not much pumpkin taste at all.

The mouthfeel is thin and watery

Overall I think this is a complete miss as a pumpkin ale. In don't understand the high ratings for this brew. Little pumpkin smell or taste. Little pumpkin spice smell or taste; this brew is even light on the caramel malts. There are much better pumpkin ales out there.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Purchased from Three Cellars in Franklin, WI. Pours a reddish amber body with a short white head that quickly fades. Aroma is of pumkin pie spices. Mouthfeel is medium bodied. Caramelized sugar and cinnamon are too over the top and dominate in the taste. No other flavors get a chance to come through. This is just too one-dimensional and not very good.

look: 2.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2.75

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.

Pretty flavourless overall. Nothing special going on in the appearance, dark ruby brown with no head. Really not much smell at all, a bit of caramel and sweet malts. The taste was equally bland. One could detect a bit of nutmeg and cinnamon in the mix. It was interesting, but much much weaker than I expected.

The only real redeeming quality of this beer was the high ABV was unnoticeable. You could look pretty cool getting wasted of your ass at a frat party. O_o
