Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip

L: Clear copper pour. 1 finger of foamy white head... falls fast with a reasonable ring of lacing.

S: Pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices.... about what you'd expect.

T/F: Caramel malts and brown sugar.... good pumpkin presence... spices (clove, nutmeg, ginger). Mild hop bittering cleans it up a little. Light... thin in body. Well carbonated. Finish is pie spice.

O: A pretty forgettable pumpkin beer. Drinkable... it is what it aims to be. Nothing special though, and not one I'd likely revisit.

L: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a bright orange color and a clear consistency. There was a quarter inch of foamy head that lasted an average amount of time. OK lacing.

S: A kind of underwhelming aroma of pumpkin, malt, and assorted spices.

T: Tasted of mild malt notes, a fair amount of pumpkin (not as much as expected considering the style), some spices (cinnamon, ginger), grain, and a light nutty quality. The problem here is that none of the ingredients - pumpkin included - is pushed far enough. It comes off as pretty bland and uninteresting.

F: A good amount of carbonation with a crisp finish. Light- to medium-bodied.

O: Kind of a misfire here. This beer has its good points, but can't overcome its deficient flavor.

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass.

L - Pours a deep, clear copper color, a little darker orange hue with about a finger of foam that dissipates but leaves a ring around the glass throughout.

S - Maple syrup, cinnamon, ginger, nutty banana bread. More sweetness than any pumpkin ale I'd ever smelled. Not offensive, just overly sweet.

T - Much like the smell, maple syrup, spice, some pumpkin, bready honey malt with a tinge of hops but a heavy dose of spice maybe to balance the sweetness.

F - Light to medium body, moderate carbonation that makes this almost more a lager than an ale. So, it's drinkable, but not what I expected out of a fall seasonal ale.

O - It's got the fall flavors of cinnamon spice and sweetness to it, but it drinks more like a lager than an ale. Not the best pumpkin ale I've drank, but I also bought it for the price so I guess you get what you pay for. A decent attempt, but I wouldn't buy it again.

The first drain-pour I've had in a long time. Couldn't finish the bottle. Not just artless and uninspired, but genuinely poorly crafted. An unholy hybrid of overly-saccharine and adjunct-lager-like.

From Bottle at home. I like pumpkin brews in general & like in all my beer choices, like 'me big. Big on the nose & pushy on the palate

This version is quite polite. It has a nice honey color & an invitingly mild aroma. The ginger, cinnamon & allspice are most conspicuous with the ginger taking over as it warms. I'm hard pressed to distinguish any pumpkin per se, but have written of this requirement long ago. Nowadays it seems the spices are the feature.

Which brings me back to the delicateness here. It;s also reflected in the texture.

Overall I like this beer. Something to have with food as opposed to it's bigger 7-8% cousins.

Either my taste buds are broke or there just ain't no pumpkin or spice flavor in this beer. Taste more like an average märzen.

This was poured into a becher pint glass. The appearance was a semi-hazy ruddy burnt orange almost brown color with a thin white foamy head that dissipated to a sustaining cap of a head. No lacing. The aroma starts with sweet pumpkin flesh with mild spices of ginger, cinnamon, and allspice. The flavor brings it all together nicely with a mild bready sweetness balancing nicely. Bready pumpkin flavor is in the aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a nice sessionable smooth feel to it. Carbonation seems to run at a nice pace. Overall, I say this was a very good pumpkin ale that I would have again.
