I don't see any bottle date but at the bottom there is a number stating "1501300315"

Appearance: The body is a dark mahogany brown with very good transparency. The head is a creamy texture with an eggshell white color and a short stature. Not much head retention and no real lacing.

Aroma: There is a very light sulfur aroma intermixed with clove. The aroma feels very weak.

Taste: I get a very light bit of woody character mixed with some watered down cinnamon. Very light flavors.

Mouthfeel: The body is light. This beer doesn't need much of a body to carry the light flavors and aromas it provides but it still feels too light. It feels watered down.

Overall: If you are looking at a beer that hints towards pumpkin beer flavors but doesn't fully commit then this is your beer. If you are the type of person who wants your pumpkin beers to be a full-on experience then this will likely be a letdown. I wouldn't buy it again and I wouldn't recommend it. The beer is just too weak. If you really need to get a pumpkin beer and nothing else is around this is a drinkable and mildly enjoyable beer but the whole time you will probably be thinking about some other beer you wish you had.

This beer doesn't taste like a pumpkin beer so much as it does an Oktoberfest kind of beer. It's very autumnal and a little spicy, which is nice, but I don't get much by way of pumpkins. Still very enjoyable and very smooth.

From a 750 ml bottle, this brew is a clear, chestnut color without a head at all. Plenty of carbonation, but no head. The smell is one of the better pumpkin beers that I've had in a while....the blend of spice to malt, with just a little vegetable pumpkin presence, is excellent. Flavorful, malty, balanced...ginger and nutmeg are notable, caramelized sugar...pumpkin pie. The body is full, but not thick. This is a very well made pumpkin brew.

I like Rogue offerings in general, and they have had a number of pumpkin offerings. Maybe they are searching for perfection here. This one was one of the better pumpkin beers I've had. Nose is more pumpkin than pumpkin spice, taste follows. Throw more pumpkin spice in and sweeten it and it could be really good for those like me seeking pumpkin pie in a bottle.
