Its better than all others in the Volaver's organic assorted beers collection. Next time I would go and buy this alone than the other Volaver's ales. To mention I never like those dark colored ales/beers which would taste a bit like chocolate. This was a good tasting beer.

Very sweet pumpkin in the aroma, with a bit of zucchini and hints of Wolaver's Pumpkin Ale banana bread. There’s also a good deal of fall spices, particularly cinnamon, though the sweetness takes over. The taste follows, very sweet up front and at the end, with a bit of a toffee character to the malt. The middle has some of the actual pumpkin flavor, with weird banana notes. Overall, this one was too sweet for me. I assume Wolaver’s uses only organic pumpkins in the brew process, but the flavor tastes similar to artificial pumpkin to me.
