12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a pretty, cloudy, orange/brown color, with a quarter of a finger of white head that quickly dissolved into a thin halo of foam that gripped the sides of the glass and formed a few wispy clouds that gathered in the center of the top of the beer.

Aroma: Very fruity and spicy. Lots of pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices, such as clove, cinnamon, all-spice, nutmeg and brown sugar. However, I get next to nothing in the way of hops.

Taste: Fruity and citrusy up front, showing lots of pumpkin and surprisingly, lemon. Next comes some spice notes of clove and nutmeg. Finally, the beer finishes with some good malt notes, but has next to nothing of hops, which I much prefer. This beer is surprisingly more tart than sweet. Original and interesting.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied, with a pretty good amount of carbonation to not only tickle the taste buds, but wake them the hell up! With an ABV of only 5.35%, there is absolutely no alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is a pretty good pumpkin beer. I like the tartness and the pumpkin flavor. As stated above, it’s both original and interesting.

Good pumpkin ale. Not overly spiced. Mild sweetness. Medium-light body. Residual sweetness in the finish.

Pretty solid pumpkin ale. Havent bought many this year.

Got the standard mix of spices, I get cinnamon ginger and nutmeg. I'm guessing the "4th" is cloves but not sure.

Its nice and drinkable, not overly sweet, good rich body, medium maltiness, a touch of noble hops, and a nice clean bready yeast (ale) flavor. Reminds me somewhat of Smuttys pumpkin. A good no frills 6 pack, that doesn't necessarily stand out, and thats a good thing.
