Reasonable pumpkin aroma. Can taste a hint of spices. My bottle felt a bit over carbonated which detracted from the flavor. Overall, decent beer. Not my favorite pumpkin, but drinkable.

DON'T BUY INTO THE BAD REVIEWS. For over 2 years I've avoided this beer like the plague, simply because of what I've read on here. I really don't understand it. In my experience with pumpkin beers, I've found that the overwhelming majority of them are one and done for me. This one is different; while the flavor is there, it is far from overwhelming. I bought a six pack of these and will easily finish them in 1-2 weeks. My rating is based solely on pumpkin ales, not beer in general. Give this one a try.

A delicious, seasonal craft beer from Portland, Maine. I enjoyed it, and so did relatives visiting from California!
