The smell of pumpkin and booze is there. The color is quite nice at a polished bronze look. The flavor is mild pumpkin but it really reminds me of flavored whiskey that is artificially flavored. Almost a chemical taste. Not a really good experience for me. Not a good pumpkin beer for me. Shipyard is a great company but this needs a little more time to perfect the taste. This just doesn't pair well with any food I can think of. I just cannot recommend this even with a cinnamon and sugar rimmed glass.

I am not a huge fan of pumpkin beers, but tis the season... This is definitely one of the best pumpkin beers I have sampled. The flavors remind me of pumpkin pie but also wrap around a very well made brew. Definitely glad I found this in my latest six pack of the month selection!

Look: poured half a finger of off white head with tight bubbles. Golden orange in the glass with a decent amount of carbonation

Smell: aroma is rather mild. Hints of nutmeg, cinnamon, candied yams, pie crust.

Taste: follows nose exactly with a lot of bitterness. I get the alcohol on the back end.

Feel: medium

Overall: halfway decent i guess

A: hazy, orange, bright. Small head, dissipated quickly.

S: spices, pumpkin, sweet.

T: no surprises, based on the smell. Very sweet, but offset nicely by the spice.

M: rich, lovely, creamy texture. Goes really well with the flavors.

O: For those fond of pumpkin beers, this is a great drinking experience. It's like drinking a pumpkin pie at your grandmother's house.

Pours orange, nose is pumpkin and spice, taste did not deliver as it was mostly squash and cinnamon. Not the worst pumpkin beer, have had plenty of those. Overall just OK. Not going to buy a pumpkin beer just to smell it.

Poured from a brown 22 oz. bottle. Has a bronze color with orange hues and a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of pumpkin, subtle spices. Taste is pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, light malts, a bit of alcohol. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a good quality beer.
