I'm enjoying this but I'm not sure I have the right beer. No where do I see "harvest" on the label. I'd add it as a new beer, but I can't find an ABV either. Whatever. It's a dark copper color, smells of pumpkin pie spices and tastes the same. A light feel, overall quite good.

I remember being unimpressed by this beer when I had it this past winter, as if it was just an ordinary ale with a little bit of pumpkin flavor (although it may have been a bit beyond it's 'best by' date).

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Look: Golden copper hue... very clear. Not much of a head didn't make it to 2 finger.
Smell: Slight malt, caramel, and some spice.
Taste: Some tartness upfront, but not sure if it is hops at work or other ingredients. A bit sweet and spices kick in. Not too much spice, but just about right. Not very flavorful other than some spice and malt. Tastes a bit weak. I was hoping for a more rich and dark flavor.
Feel: Medium - Low body. Did seem a bit thin for an ale.
Overall: It's ok. I have had worse and I have had better. Middle of the road pumpkin ale. Decent to try. I just prefer more powerful pumpkin beers.

Pour is a medium golden amber with decent foamy head. Smells of nutmeg and cloves with a mix of pumpkin and malt. Taste is very sweet with nutmeg and pumpkin mix, very smooth and light flavors. The finish is easy and clean, mild spice mix and overall not too bad. I would rate this a light pumpkin style, it has a very laid back taste but not lacking just very mild. Would have another, not a bad beer.

12 oz can poured into a Belgian snifter.

A- slightly hazy dark amber color with a short, light tan head soon becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a very thin, partial surface coat.

S- Usual pumpkin spices of clove and nutmeg with a little vanilla and caramel.

Flavor: more malt forward and less spiced than the aroma suggests. Starts sweet but ends up with a mild bitterness. A suggestion of pumpkin without an unappealing vegetative aspect. Approaches 3.75.

M- Smooth. medium-full body leaning toward the fuller side. Medium carbonation.

O- Tasty; spicy but not over-spiced.

Grabbed a sixer of this out of season for a deal, which I'm a sucker for. Might be the first brew I've tried from Utah. Can't say it's on my hit list of states I want to try beer though.

This brew pours a fairly hazy dark amber color with just about no head or lacing to speak of. On the plus side, I'd call it "orangey," which fits with the style, right?

Smell is the best part of this brew in my opinion. Quite a bit of pumpkin spice, but I don't detect much if anything of a pumpkin squash aroma. At the end of the glass as it's warmed, a bready/yeasty note rose up that mingled nicely with the spices.

Flavors are dominated by those spices, but they're not as enjoyable without much balance or backbone of malt. A little bit of toasty malts, but I feel like I have to search for those, even as it warms up. Body is medium, which is fine for the level of flavor. Finish doesn't last too long but ends slightly soapy.

Overall, not too impressed. It'll be an exercise of dedication to finish of this six pack for me. Especially since it doesn't pair well with food, so it's not a great wash the meal down type of drink.

12oz bottle, best before date of 2/5/16. Pours honey colored with a large off-white head. Smells of good pumpkin with some spice and malt. The taste follows closely but is weak in intensity; pumpkin, malt, spices, and light hops. Medium body and above average carbonation. Overall, it's a pretty straightforward Pumpkin Ale, but it needs a stronger flavor intensity and some complexity.

12 oz. bottle 1 month out of date. But not a problem. I suspect 2 months out of date if stored properly would be better still. First off, the head on this baby was half, no actually two thirds of the glass. When it settled the lace lasted 'til the end. Smell and look was typical of a brown ale but with some clove/nutmeg like additions. Pumpkin? Come on, has anyone ever tasted a pumpkin on its own. As a home brewer, I realize that pumpkin (potatoes, beets, etc. all add to the fermentables) but pumpkin does zip to a beers flavor. So it's the seasonal spices (clove, ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon) that typically make for a "pumpkin" beer. And thankfully Punk'n doesn't overdo it. All in all, a nice seasonal with just enough flavor, good carbonation, and a smooth drinkability.

Not much pumpkin or spice. Leans more towards a lager than pumpkin beer. Some wheat, rather thin.
