I had the Terrapin Pumpkin at the World of Beer Birmingham, AL. Served in standard shaker, the beer is orange/Amber with a nice beige head.

It has a nose pumpkin pie spices and grains.

The taste tracks the smell. Spices (clove allspice and maybe cinnamon) Laid over a base of slightly sweet cracker like malts. As the beer warms, it loses a bit of its luster as it thins and something sour emerges.

The mouth is a solid, just above average.

The beer starts well but fades in the end.

A: Clear with a copper/amber color. Thick and creamy off white/tan head

S: All of the pumpkin pie smells with a touch of caramel.

T: Caramel malts with hints of nutmeg and cinnamon. The spices are present but I don’t find them overbearing.

M: Medium bodied, smooth, crisp.

O: This is my first pumpkin beer! I think it’s pretty decent, although I would have liked it to be a bit more sweet.

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a bronze color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of spices, pumpkin. Taste is spices up front, cinnamon and ginger in particular, some pumpkin and malts. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall a solid beer, maybe just a bit heavy handed with the spices.

Tastes a lot like pumpkin pie spice, but not overly sweet. I thought it was a solid pumpkin beer.

T: Bready with pumpkin, nutmeg, and more pie spice.

M: Medium light with very active carbonation. There is a little bit of a carbonic bite in the finish.

O: It's a pumpkin beer. That's about it.. Better than some, lesser than others.
