Had this on tap over at the Big E in West Springfield. The beer had a nice, clear, amber-orange appearance with visible carbonation and a thin white head. Aromas were a bit faint, but I could smell pumpkin spice herb wrapped around malts. Taste followed the nose with a nice bittersweet bread-malt balance with just a hint of pumpkin spice. The mouthfeel was great; really clean and refreshing. Overall, I thought the beer was not bad, especially in terms of its mouthfeel and appearance.

On-tap 10/17/2015 at Natty Greene’s Tavern, in North Attleboro, MA, served in a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep gold color, with a thin off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains pumpkin, spices, caramelize malts and a touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out with strong flavors of pumpkin, ginger and cinnamon. Then a hearty but not too heavy malt character comes in. The hops presence is mild and brings some balance. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: A little tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, this is a solid beer to drink for a while if you’re in the mood for the style.

Light fizzy head, semi clear nectar sunny orange color.

Nose brings plenty of pumpkin, fresh and baked pumpkin, light spices, hint of pie but barely, light malty aroma, sweet malt.

Taste brings more pumpkin, fresh and baked pie, little tangy tart pumpkin, light feeling compared to most pumpkin beers, little toasted gourd. Mild spices, allspice, clove, perhaps a bit of nutmeg and cinnamon, hard to tell, little ginger perhaps even. Hint bready toasted malt, lighter malts, no a big sweet caramel bomb thankfully. Finish dry, hint of bitterness, little pumpkin, mild vegetal note with mild spices.

Mouth is med bod, nice small bubble popping carb.

Overall pretty nice, everything is mild, pumpkin still comes through nicely, little spices but thankfully not syrupy sweet caramel thing.

Wormtown never disappoints. This is one of the lower abv (4.5%, not 4.3%) pumpkin ales while still having a medium body. Took home a 6-pack.

Light, drinkable, fantastic. A pumpkin beer you can have a few of since it's missing the overly sweet, vanilla flavor slammed into so many others. Really well done.

12oz. bottle dated 8/31/16

Pours golden amber with a dense creamy white foam head. Smells like fresh pumpkin, graham cracker, pumpkin spices, some orange citrus, caramel, toasted bready malts, vanilla, with earthy herbal grassy pine. Tastes like pumpkin, sweet spices, orange citrus, caramel, toasted bready malts, mild vanilla, with earthy herbal grassy pine. Feels medium-light bodied, creamy with moderate carbonation. Overall a nice pumpkin ale.

Enjoyed at the brewery.

A - Poured a clear light honey hue with a thin head that faded to leave light wisps.

S - Aromas of light vegetable notes, pumpkin fresh, faint spice notes, pumpkin pie filling.

T - Taste is similar to the nose, decent vegetative note. The malt sweetness is there along with a light cracker crust. Spice notes are there too. All spice, clove, nutmeg, maybe some ginger.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, crisp, clean.

O - Overall this beer was a solid pumpkin offering. I'm not a huge fan of the spice notes though

Serving type: on tap

L- The beer pours a dark gold to amber and yields a frothy white 1 inch head.
S- Fresh pumpkin and light spice. A nice balance where the spice does not completely overwhelm the pumpkin.
T- Taste follows the nose with the pumpkin on the front end. Dry bready notes appear in the middle to be quickly replaced with a mild lingering pumpkin pie spice note.
F- The feel is light with good carbonation and a slightly dry finish.
O- One of the best Pumpkin ales I've had. Certainly the best blend of pumpkin and spice that I've had. Those who don't care for pumpkin spices may still not care for it, but it is one of the few where I get both pumpkin and spices.
