Poured this from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass. I thought the color was perfect for a pumpkin ale and made me think of fall colors. There isn't much of a head at all and with minimal lacing. Very carbonated though almost like a soda in the glass. There is a definate pumpkin pie aroma with alot of spicy undertones. More spice than I've ever had in a pumpkin ale at this point. If you like the spices I think this is a beer you might enjoy.... almost could qualify as a spiced ale!

12oz beer poured into a pint glass. No stamped date.

Appearance - One finger barely offwhite head. Hazy light orange body.

Smell - Strong pumpkin spice. Cinnamon. Brown sugar. Eggnog... wrong holiday, but hey, the nose doesn't lie.

Taste - Pumpkin. Mild malts. Slight spiciness.

Mouthfeel - Smooth, inoffensive. Neither challenging nor boring.

Overall Drinkability - I think this beer is great at what it does. Not my style, but I can totally appreciate it. It's soft, mild, balanced, flavorful, and inoffensive. Great novelty beer.

I was shocked to see this have such a low review! It was last of all the pumpkins! I really enjoyed it! It had a light taste with a pleasant amount of pumpkin and spice! Not too bitter and no bad after taste.

Pours a nice pumpkin orange color with some decent initial head; no lacing. Nice deep pumpkin scent, hints of the gourd itself with a nice pumpkin spice scent. Nice flavor; light malt sweetness with a hit of pumpkin spice up front and a bit of the pumpkin itself at the end. Goes down quite well, with a nice sparkling bit of carbonation. A very nice pumpkin ale.
