Had on tap at Tapped in Tarrytown NY.

Color is a reddish brown with little to no head on the pour.

Smell is nutmeg cinnamon typical spicing for a Pumpkin beer.

I always taste a slight sourness to good pumpkin beers- similar to a flavor profile I get in pumpkin pie. Evident here slightly, lots of the spicing in the flavor.

Decent pumpkin.

Had this poured into a pint glass. Color was a nice orange-copper, good looking beer. Aroma and flavor pumpkin and spices as youd expect, plenty of flavor but not too sweet. Mouthfeel was a bit harsh, but overall not bad. Pretty decent pumpkin.

This is one of the best pumpkin beers I've had. The color was dark amber, and it smelled of malts and spices. It had a nice toasty malt flavor with a moderate amount of pumpkin and spice that didn't overpower the beer flavor. This is a well balanced beer, and it really hits all the notes a pumpkin beer should. No one flavor dominates with pumpkin being distinct but secondary to the malts. It also tasted super fresh, but maybe it was just my bottle. Medium bodied, and easy to drink- I would love to have it again if I could find it again.

Wasn't served in transparent glass, so the best I can describe it as is "dark reddish-brown". Had a tannish head. Last bit poured from bottle, so can't really comment on retention. On the nose, pumpkin spice. On the palate, that, but alcohol and roastiness as well. Very good. Medium-bodied and quite sudsy. Only was afforded a small taste at a friend's house. Want to find myself it so I can give it a proper review (and rating).

Poured a dark copper color from bomber with little head and no retention. Aroma was pleasant; the notes of pumpkin spice you'd expect from the style. Taste was good and not ovpowering on the spice. Feel was a bit thin, however. I think this could be even better with a bit more chew to it. Overall, a solid entry into the vast pumpkin beer category.

Pumpkin Rating: Fair
Drink Again: If I could get it, yep!
There is a very strong spell that brings to mind all manners of delicious pumpkin based savory foods, which is a nice contrast to a lot of the sweet 'n spicier pumpkin beers out there. I'm not sure if the flavor holds up, but it has a light and not unpleasant sourness that's very drinkable. I could see it pairing well with anything big, oily, savory. About to pull some squash based macaroni cheese and find out.

A- Deep ruby color, clear. One finger head and no lacing.
S- Nothing artificial about it. Like drinking cold leftover pumpkin pie.
T- Spiciness, worthiness, and pumpkin pie all meld seamlessly. Not too strong or lite.
M- Medium high carbonation. Creamy.
D- Wow, a great pumpkin beer from the brewers at Rogue!
