I am trying a few different pumpkin beers that I have not tired before. This is the first of the bunch. Not bad, but nothing special. Good color and smell. Very average taste, not much pumpkin, some spice.

I like Pumpkin ale/beer. Most have an artificial pumpkin pie taste, which I am not so crazy about( harpoon pumpkin comes to mind)) This is the best Pumpkin ale there is.

Orange body and lots of bubbles to show off a tan head that falls quickly. Nose is excellent. Smooth malt a touch of the gourd and not too many spices. There is to my delight a bit of spicy hop. Floral and hops give this one a nose that is demure against some well crafted spice that has only a light touch to it. A little cinnamon a little biscuit, nutmeg. Drink is dry and earthy. Sweet with a bit of caramel. There's a taste to it like dry leaves and twigs. It really grows on you.

Interesting, not as strong a clove presence as some other pumpkin beers. Much lighter but still enjoyable. Would purchase again.
