2.75/5  rDev -18.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: 1/4 inch head, orange-brown in color, clear, medium-high carbonation

Smell: pumpkin spice, sugar, and bread

Taste: earth, pale malt, and pumpkin spice

Mouthfeel: sweet with a underlying dry bitterness, medium-high carbonation, light bodied

Overall: Of all the pumpkin beers I have had this fall, this one is one of the more disappointing ones. If you like your pumpkin spice more subtle and the beer a bit more on the pale side, this one is probably for you. Long Trail has a different take on the style, I just wish the pumpkin spice or breadiness would have popped some more.

look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

Serving Type:

Bottle

Appearance:

Dark, Amber color. Nice Autumn color for a fall beer/pumpkin beer.

Smell:

This beer doesn't seem very special. The smell consists of some allspice, cinnamon, and nutmeg. You get a strong aroma of, what I'll call, a typical beer smell. I like my pumpkin beer to have a strong aroma of pumpkin and spice, but this beer lacks that aroma.

Taste:

The taste of this beer is okay. The taste is a little abrasive to the pallet, due to the bitterness of the beer.

Mouthfeel:

Lightly Medium body. Abrasive to the mouth.

Overall:

This is an okay pumpkin beer. Unfortunately, it was a disappointment as are most pumpkin beer. As always, it's worth it to try it for yourself, but there are other better pumpkin beers than this.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

Poured from a bottle into a tumbler pint, the beer is a bright, vibrant, copper-brown coloring with no head. Aromas of roasted pumpkin, cinnamon, and a touch of brown sugar. Smells very smooth and rich. Flavors are sharply roasted, with a rough backbone. The pumpkin flavors are overshadowed by the roasting and increased carbonation, giving the beer a very sharp feeling in mouth. Roasty, pumpkin sweet aftertaste with extremely mild spicing. A light, crisp, quick finish. I was intrigued by the smell, but it left a bit to be desired past that point.
