I took this straight from a bottle at my wife's friend house & was not expecting to have beer at all so I jumped at the chance of trying something, particular pumkin as is the season, that I had not had before. The pumpkin style is growing each year & this version is the regular, not Imperial that southern tier, Weyerbacher & Shipyard is not known for. Had a 125 years on the neck of the bottle. The only lasting family brewery in the US and from Central NY, not bad.

A: from the bottle could not see
S: mild on the malt side
T: medium spice flavor but sweeter overall
M: medium to thick
O: Better than I thought & would drink again

Mine came in a 32 oz jug-shaped bottle.

A: Light orange-brown with a small off-white head that doesn't last and leaves no real lacing. The beer is pretty hazy.

S: Familiar pumpkin pie spice scent along with the scent of pumpkin as well. It smells pretty good.

T: At first I get some pumpkin pie spice but it is very light. It is followed by a faint toasted caramel flavor. The caramel is nice but I feel like it could use more general flavor, including the pie spice. Overall it's pretty unremarkable.

M: The mouthfeel is pretty empty feeling. It just needs more body.

O: Overall it's an alright pumpkin beer in a pinch, but it just doesn't have enough flavor or mouthfeel. I wouldn't pick it up again.
